She's right Alan. You won't need CD's when you've pulled out your eardrums to stop the noise.

dave, do you know who's coming on this wkend? need to decide transport and work out where we're climbing. also has anyone told cox+karen? even if they're not coming to the gig they might fancy coming to climb/say hello at some point during the wkend.

I was planning on working out who has tickets and discussing transport at some point in the next few days. A minibus may be a wise option. Though I think we are only doing a day trip as a couple of people said they were busy saturday I think.

If we did it in cars then one car could go for the weekend and one car could go for the day...

This probably isn't helpful but if anyone is driving to Bristol on Saturday 11th afternoon/evening I'd be interested in hitching a lift and contrabuting to petrol. I'm thinking about visiting a freind who lives there.

Title: Re: Shinedown Gig in Bristol and Climbing on 12th Feb
Post by: Dave on January 31, 2012, 09:14:43 AM
Probably leave saturday morning for people who want to do 2 days, will then have to work out somewhere to sleep. I guess that depends where we climb. As could always do Avon, but that probably makes sense for sunday as it is in bristol.

P.s Both have Trad and Sport climbing.

There also seems to now be lots of people shall have to find my organisation hat.

Some of it was good, and some of it was terrible. I will listen to more and decide whether its inbetween overall.

Ok so in my car now is me, Baby D, Josh and Tinks. That bunkhouse looks cool though is about 45 mins drive from Wye Valley...Thought it is super cheap so could outweigh the cost of a more expensive one nearer to the Wye? Where do people normally stay for Wye Valley trips?

Normally it's camping, but people seem to be against this idea.

Yay thank you. Let me know what time you plan on leaving and where is easiest for me to meet you/be picked up from.

I'm not too fussed about where we stay, as long as it's not a tent.

hang on, that place is in goblin coombe! there's a crag in goblin coombe... it's also south of bristol so we'd be better off climbing locally or maybe on avon walls (in bristol). not much point driving to wye valley unless ppl really want to climb there..

*runs off to check the internet* that place is next to the normal parking for goblin coombe :D

Would be cool to check out Wye Valley. Could go to Wye on the Saturday and stay in the bunker near the coombe then climb in the coombe Sunday?? Just read lots of accounts of loose rock there.....!! Sunday may be a seconding day for me...!! :/

the coombe is fine - i've been there a few times and had good days. it's slightly friable at the very top of the crag - a bit like climbing at swanage - but nothing to get upset about :)

As the car of non-giggers has dropped out then I can always pootle up on Saturday some time and stay over as well - depending if everyone in my car is happy to do that or not. I don't mind either way.
