Evening Meet: Robs Rocks
A poor forecast for the Chew Valley which included thunderstorms was proved right, so no-one went up to Rob's rocks this week. Lets hope for better weather for Bamford next week.
Robs Rocks are a little gem in Chew Valley catchment. Hidden up in the Upper Wilderness valley and tucked neatly out of view, the rocks are short but stout, and offer and small number of well rounded routes at ammenable grades. Plenty for an evening. The location is wild and exposed, and the sunset's briliant as crag becomes a silhouette looking down the Upper Wilderness. Great for action photos (and the presidents hotpot). Details can be found here:
The meet will start around 6pm but it is common for many to arrive earlier. The parking for Robs Rocks is at Dovestones reservoir and costs 60p. This is very cheap, but will cost a lot more should you fail to remember some change. The walk in is up Chew Road within the Upper Wilderness Valley towards Chew Reservoir. Robs Rocks are near the top. Please bring a midge repellant, a warm layer, and a head torch just in case. See you at the crag.
