/ gollums cave, avon gorge
Does anybody know if gollums stays boulderable in the rain? Or anywhere else local that might be worth a punt for a look see for a boulder or shunt session now that the wet is back?
Had a gander at gollums.
As enough people seem interested in gollums, but nobody has an opinion, or can offer advice on state of the place I'll give you a heads up.
Really, it needs a good while to stop weeping. About a year of drought should do it. Or after a short dry spell should be usable. Rain should tail off later this week. After a couple of days, I'll give it another go, eighties Thors cave style, with a blow torch.
Ps the approach is a real mire. Nearly killed mesen.
Hope that saves you a wet trip.
If you had email turned on I'd say YHM, mail you don't so I won't. Mail me for a *secret location*.
Please do tell, getting really bored of pulling on Plastic
No that's a dead email link.
Will email you when get home. Dog and i currently on beer break on long soggy walk home
Even local railway bridge is weeping like a badly dressed bed ulcer in a privatised nursing home!
does anyone in bristol with a car fancy a trip to rainy day buttress at huntsham this week. Its a goer in any weather. I have successfully aid climbed through the roof, rounding the lip is hardest, and apparently it is now free!
