Evening Meets at Tonacliffe Quarry

Tonacliffe Quarry

Wed 12th Sep, 2007

A superb, warm and sunny, evening tempted out eight KMC members and guests: Dave Wylie, Mark Ashley, Al Metelko, James Hoyle, Richard Yorke, James Cox, Des Chadderton and Gordon. There was one other climber in the quarry early on, but he took flight soon after the KMC began to arrive. There was also a brief Special Guest Appearance by Derek Clutterbuck (of this very quarry's "Layaway Wall" fame)! Most of the low and mid grade routes were climbed by the masses, while some of the harder ones were tackled by Al and Des. The daylight began to run out before 8pm, but that didn't stop the KMC. Various attempts on "The Ceiling" (the 5a roof problem) were made - some successful, others less so - by the light of head torches...

Tonacliffe Quarry

Wed 19th Jul, 2006

Dave Wylie, John Cox, Mark Ashley, Dave Shotton, Trish Cranston, Karen Kennedy, Roger Daley, Al Metelko and Young Gordon visited this small quarry just North of Rochdale. A superb, warm, sunny evening with just enough breeze at the top of the crag to prevent people being roasted. Most of the worthwhile routes in the low to mid grades saw multiple leads. Given the small size of the quarry, most of the routes done actually seemed very good! After a few routes, the first four of the climbers named above headed off to Roy and Ivy Lee's Garden Party, where the venue for the following week was decided by a unanimous vote. Roy and Ivy wrote: Please will you thank the Karabiner Mountaineering members and friends for the wonderful support at the garden evening in aid of St. Ann's Hospice with the sale of plants and donations. £118 was raised on the night but the main point it was lovely meeting friends again. With our other events, a cheque for £677.50 will be sent to the hospice. Thank you all once again, Kind thoughts, Roy and Ivy Lee.

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.
