Sat 11th May - Sun 12th May, 2024
Newcomers meet 2024
Saturday 11th will be at Stanage Edge
Meet up to leave from Hooks car park (Popular end) at 09.30 a.m. Arrive closer to 9am if you want to be guaranteed a spot. Please note this is now a PAY AND DISPLAY! From there it’s a short walk-in to Manchester Buttress and the uber-popular end of Stanage. We’ll base ourselves around that area most of the day, with teams moving leftwards towards Christmas crack/Black Slab and further as the day wears on. Most years there are Ring Ouzel bird nesting restrictions – so we’ll see where this is at on the day – check the RAD link below. As many of us will drive back through Glossop we’ll head to The Globe pub for a quick natter over a drink for about 6.30ish. Keep your eye on the WhatsApp groups for up-to-date chatter, info, lift shares and general banter….. If the weather is wet, don’t despair! Bring your walking boots and waterproofs and we’ll go for a sociable walk around the Burbage Valley / Stanage area for a few hours in the hope things may dry enough for a route or two later. For those who might prefer to run then that’s an option, and if there is a contingent that fancy the wall instead, folk can make their own arrangements on WhatsApp.
Sunday 12th is at the small but perfectly formed Harborough Rocks. Small car park on Manystones Lane just after the brickworks on the left if coming from Brassington
Keep your eye on the WhatsApp groups for up-to-date chatter, info, lift shares and general banter….. If the weather is wet, don’t despair – as an alternative, there will be a scramble or walk somewhere else closer to Manchester…… keep your eye on the WhatsApp groups for details.
If you need a link to join the WhatsApp groups drop Mich or Andy a line by any means you fancy!
If you have recently signed up as a prospective member, or wish to do so, please email email@example.com to let us know you'd like to come. Bring your own harness, helmet, rock shoes etc. As we don't do instruction or teaching and aren't insured to do this we'd expect anyone coming to know how to belay safely and competently. We’ll make sure all new folk get to climb with members at various times during the day.
Finally, If you think you are coming please click the ''intend to attend'' button on this page!
See you all there!
Mich and Andy on behalf of the KMC Committee
