Bowline CC - Wet n wild

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 3rd May 2016 @ 12:46pm

Hi Everyone,

Having abandoned our Yorkshire aspirations we hoped the Peak District would be able to fill the gap in our weekends climbing plans. And brave souls did attempt to climb on both Saturday and Sunday, in both cases the conditions put pay to climbing after the first routes had been scaled. However we did make the most of it with some walking and squeezing instead.

This coming weekend we hope to return to the Peak district for climbing again, watch out for an invite later in the week. Looking slightly further ahead we have a Joint meet up with Barrow MC at The Roaches on Saturday 21st May. And it's good to see lots of people booking their accommodation for our Cornish Climbing trip at the end of May (Whitsun bank holiday). 

We'll make another attempt to visit Charnwood Quarry for Thursday climbing this week. And of course there will be bouldering at the The Climbing Station on Tuesday.

Peak District Climbing

  • Saturday, 30th April 2016 at 10am

    In lieu of our trip to Yorkshire we'll be heading to the Peak on Saturday for some climbing…

Bowline CC - Climbing tonight and at the weekend

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Thursday, 28th April 2016 @ 11:14am

Hi Bowliners,


Despite the sunshine streaming through the window right now, the pesky rain is coming later today so tonights Thursday climbing will be at The Tower climbing wall.

Also the current forecast for Yorkshire across the weekend is not very inspiring which is a real shame as I was very much looking forward to a trip to Yorkshire and particularly Brimham Rocks. The forecast has been a bit changeable, but at the moment the better weather for dry rock in the day time seems to be around the south and south west coastal areas (Dorset, Devon, Cornwall). I'm open to suggestions on an alternative location to camp and climb, let me know your thoughts and I will send an email round tonight with a final suggestion.

Kind regards,

Andy

Bowline CC - Come climb with us

Hey Bowliners,

Hope you managed to find some dry sheltered rock this weekend for a spot of climbing! A small group of us were in the Peak district doing our SPA training and we managed to dodge most of the weather and learnt some new skills, now lots of practice required.

Now down to business with some important meet news, hot off the press:

  • We are watching the forecast closely for this comming weekends Yorkshire climbing meet. If the weather looks generally unappealing for climbing/camping we may switch destinations to somewhere with more favourable weather. I'll send an update out to everyone on Thursday morning with our plan.
  • Hopefully you all received the invitation to our Cornish Climbing trip at the end of May (Whitsun bank holiday). If you are interested do get your accommodation at the Youth Hostel (camping or rooms) booked ASAP as we expect they will be sold out soon.
  • We have all the plans in place for this years summer meal in The Forest of Dean on the weekend of 16th/17th July. Watch out for an invitation via email later this week.
  • Don't forget to get in touch with Andy Railton if you are interested in joining in with the Alpine trip to the Massif de Ecrins which is taking place in August.
  • Local charity LOROS are running a bouldering competition at The Tower on Thursday 26th May to raise funds for their work caring for local prople.

Unfortunately the forecast for this week is not great so for Th meet at Charnwood Quarry for 6pm if possible, otherwise we'll be at The Tower. For bouldering come to The Climbing Station on Tuesday from 6pm onwards.

Bowline CC - Dinorwic Mill Rocks

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Friday, 22nd April 2016 @ 4:24pm

Hi Bowliners,


As a little side project to our recent 'Love the hut' weekend a new crag next to the hut has appeared on UKC. After a bit of a cleanup some suggested bouldering problems have been created and tested by a small group of Bowliners. Whilst these rocks have no doubt been climbed many times over the year by club members and locals alike, we thought that having some recommend problems would be a good way to inspire future visitors.


Take a look on UKC for the details of the problems, including some Topo's, and maybe give them a try next time you're at the hut!

Have a great weekend!


Andy
