Yet another exceptionally well attended meet with fifty plus people at the crag throughout the day. I am not sure if this was due to the good weather forecast or the free tea and cakes from the cave café. (Enjoyed by all except the club president who missed out on his cup of tea to do another climb) The usual classic climbs, long climb etc, all had traffic jams bellow them as well as some of the more dramatic routes such as cave crack which are normally only climbed in better weather conditions had several ascents made. Thanks to everybody for attending and hopefully next year will see a repeat of the good weather and good attendance for this most traditional of KMC meets. Andrew Croughton meet leader and reluctant tea maker.

Meet Promo:

Yet again we will be meeting in the cave at Laddow for cake and drinks before the usual mad rush to climb all the classic routes of this meet in the sunshine before the weather changes. But wait this year we are a week earlier and in a totally different month so could have even better weather than the normal October sunshine. Meet at the crag from 10am or 9.30am in the car park to help carry water and stoves to the crag. See you there and bring your sun cream Andrew.
