As I now have a house you are more than welcome to come this way for some Wye/Avon action, but equally I am happy to go further afield. I believe Ali had mentioned Devon to you Al?

i remember him saying something about it but i might've done a bit of drinking that night so the details are missing. i've never been to torquay and been wanting to do moonraker for ages. unfortunately that's a long drive for a day. i guess i could drive down on saturday evening and climb on sunday.. i'll see if vicky's gone anything planned

Hmm. Ok I know Cox is free and I assume mr Blind Joe is free in Bristol so the West Country contigent can mobilise, but could bust out some wintours / Shorn cliff / Avon action if people fancy not going too far? Unless someone suggests somewhere further afield or more exciting could do that too. Maybe Pembroke?

nash suggested we go out in bris on saturday night then do some hungover climbing on sunday. he's specifically requested not to go to avon in that case..
i would like to go to pembroke altho it's a long way to go for a day trip! i am thinking that travelling saturday night would be a good idea tho

To avoid the bulk of the blame should sunday be a horrific hungover write off, Alan said "I want to see how climbing goes after staying out until 6am in Briz"


I've got things I should do in Guildford on saturday so coming Briz way later saturday afternoon to rock out some sunday climbing would be good.


I'm not hugely fussy where really, but keen on Wye Wye Delilah.

Does this mean Alan has stopped blaming me for Hangovers and chosen you instead Nash? This is definitely cause to celebrate.

Yeah I suspect it's only a proximity thing.


It may have been annual dinner? There was serious consideration given to the idea of calling you up and blaming you for Alan's hangover by remote though :D

Ok well should be out climbing with si n windle tomorrow. So if you let one of us know how you are getting on and can sort out. If weather is good there is a chance BBQing will occur.
