Phil Jarvis, Jim Symon, Robert Clark, Al Metelko, Christine Beeston, Dave Dillon, Dave Shotton, Dave Wylie, Duncan Lee, Colin Madison, Peter McNulty, James Williams, Roger Dyke, Peter Walker, Iain McCallum, Mark Garrod, Michelle Harvie, Viginia Castick, John Castick, Doctor John and son Tom, The Red Arrows, Eric the Red Viking and the team that thought they'd have a quiet day at a quiet crag.


One of the best days at Laddow with enough of a breeze to keep the midge away, even when the sun had left the climbs in shadow. Lots of climbs done with plenty entertainment on the routes out of the cave. Eric kept the hot water coming and the Red Arrows used Holm Moss as a beacon. Thanks to all who attended and special thanks to those who brought up cake and water and to Trish who made a fine lemon drizzle (yes, one slice was for you Ken).

Meet Promo:

The KMC’s traditional venue – help keep the heather at bay.

Looks like it could be dry on Sunday. So I’ll be there and will bring a stove, kettle, some milk and teabags for the cave. If you are coming along, please bring a mug and some water. There might even be some cake! For a mass walk-in meet at the car park in Crowden at around 9:30am. For directions click here.

See you there
