Evening Meets at Rough Knarr


Rough Knarr

Wed 17th Aug, 2005

three Daves, Trish, Alex, Ellie, Al, Robert, Jamie, Lester, Roger and Scott. The quarry itself is not the most inviting place, as a large amount of debris (mostly rubble and wood) have been dumped there and there is vegetation on some of the routes. The guidebooks are not as helpful as they ought to be: the older Lancs guide (yellow cover) seems to have combined all three of the bays into one, so none of the routes match up! The new guide (the huge black tome) is a much better bet. Even so, this guide claims that the quarry is "West Facing" when in fact it looks East, so didn't get any of the evening sunshine. Everyone headed into the Third Bay where the best routes were supposed to be. As it turned out, the rock itself (after a bit of weeding) was very good and the routes proved very enjoyable for most of those present. The most popular routes seemed to be "Delph" (V-Diff), "Dobcross" (Severe, 4a), and "Fireman`s Lift" (Severe, 4a). Roger also led something approximating to "Diggle" (VS, 5a), though it remains unclear as to whether he stuck exactly to the line! Scott and Al soloed most of the above and probably several other routes as well. After all of this, the team headed off to the nearby "Old Original" pub for a quick drink and to decide the next evening venue.

During the spring and summer months evening meets are held outdoors at local crags, usually on Wednesdays, weather permitting. Keep an eye on the scribbles for the latest information. Indoor climbing wall meets start again in the autumn.

Some lucky people may be able to get out climbing nice and early, but this will vary depending on work hours and the traveling distance. Generally you should find KMC climbers at the crag by 6pm and some might still be there after its gone dark.

If you have any questions about coming along to a meet, or if you want to try and arrange car sharing, etc., then just send us an e-mail. For the latest information check the Scribble pages.
