Every climber will one day have a love affair with Stanage. It's like a teenage crush, only Stanage doesn't get old. It's beautiful in every generation. A near continuous 4 km length of natural gritstone that reaches nearly 25m in places. I don't think its possible for a climber to run out of routes here, and there is no equal, anywhere else on Grit. The routes are everywhere, quality at every grade, and did I say there was bouldering? Well there is; loads of it!
The club has been here this year already. Once to Popular end, and once to High Neb. This evening we will be going to Plantation. Details are found here:
Plantation has it own carpark that does cost money. There is limited roadside parking but please be considerate, and remember that the parking fee helps to conserve the North Lees estate for everyone. Please also be careful with your belongings. Plantation is a popular place and the crooks know that. 6pm is a safe bet for arriving but it is common for many to arrive earlier. Please keep an eye on scribble for updates and check the promo before you come out. Last thing, midsummer means the midge risk is high. Please bring your bug spray. See you all at the crag guys.
Different meets require varying levels of experience and fitness. Please speak to the meet organiser before the meet if you are concerned about any issues with regard to the meet or your ability to participate in the activities proposed. Contact details can be found on the Contact Us page.
