Climbing 18th 19th + borrowing club kit
« on: August 16, 2012, 02:02:45 PM »
I've found myself with a weekend off so planning on heading peakwards. Going to take the van and wild camp but could meet at crags, maybe give lifts.

Also is it possible to borrow club ropes or a lead kit. I was planning on replacing mine in the autumn anyway but not sorted it yet.

To me wild camping means in a tent in the middle of no where and not in a campsite, I'm assuming by wild camping you mean park up a the side of the road and climb into the back of the van.  Not very wild :-)

Weather in the peaks is looking decidedly dodgy this weekend. Matt and I are not sure what we are doing yet, going to decide this evening.

It'll be no good, there are too many holes in my van for it to float.

Thanks for the offer of gear guys but Rowan has been a hero and lent me his stuff \o/
