Report

It was too wet to get out on September 30th, so the meet was deferred to the first week of October. Al Metelko, Trish Cranston, Dave Dillon, Christine Stark and Dave Wylie all turned out for this last "daylight" evening meet of the year. It was, of course, dark by the time the team finished. Everyone climbed "Chapel Crack", with leads by Al and Dave W. The top of this route was an overgrown, loose and dangerous bank of earth and rubble. Major thanks to Dave D. who acted as a very patient in-situ (or, perhaps, in-shrubbery?!) belayer for both these ascents. Trish, Al and Christine also went up "The chute" - which was described as being more "interesting" than expected. The crag is not in a very nice state and could do with a major clean up. However, this would require agent orange and some large earth-moving machinery to make any impact... The post-meet pub had some good beer, but also could have done with a bit of a refurbishment!



Back to Current Midweek

If you are considering coming along to a club meet, please read the following:-

Participation Statement

"I accept that climbing and mountaineering are activities with a risk of personal injury or death. I am aware of and shall accept these risks and wish to participate in these activities voluntarily and shall be responsible for my own actions and involvement."


Midweek meets are held at local crags, normally on Wednesday evenings, weather permitting. The "Next Crag" will be decided by those keen people who climb and vote on the night (usually in a pub nearest to the crag).

Some lucky people may be able to get out climbing nice and early, but this will vary depending on work hours and the travelling distance. Generally you should find KMC climbers at the crag by 6pm and some of us 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.
