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.
