Skye, for 4 nights camping and chilling out. Wander arond to Loch Coruisk, maybe amble up the Dubh Slabs, take some photos and try to stay warm while not being in a city and not being surrounded by hoards of people. Can't wait!

In reply to Skip: Hi Mike, If you're thinking of Baggy don't forget Long Rock is bird banned at the moment - still plenty to go at on The Promontory. Check the tides too of course, although Kinky Boots is accessible once the tide is in and can be used as a alternative start to other routes on the slab too. Enjoy it!

Flying down to California, prob end up at Lake Tahoe, doing easy stuff with a 5 month pregnant wife. The thing Dan Osman speed climbs in THAT video is down there, might do that at a more sedate pace.

Wales, assuming it doesn't snow so much that I can't get in.

In reply to dj_brigham05: Taking my wife to Applecross via Aviemore in the campervan. I've raved about the great food in the pub there for years and finally she's agreed to come with me for a few days. Hopefully it will stay dry enough to do some gentle walks.

Pootling about home with the odd day trip. Only definite plan so far is a walk in the Peak on Sunday.

Hopefully to pick up my daughter and first grandchild from the maternity ward, (but so far no sign of her even going into labour.)
The Norris - on 28 Mar 2013
In reply to dj_brigham05: I'm going to go walking in the peak district for a couple of days, then maybe try and do a bit of climbing in the cheshire sandstone crags... Hoping itll be a bit less snowy than the peak.
Skip - on 28 Mar 2013
In reply to dj_brigham05:

Slight change of plan. Off to Plymouth tomorrow, the Dewerstone Saturday, then possibly Culm Coast. That is if i survive Central Groove, having already taken a lead fall there.

Anyone know of any camping around Dewerstone?

In reply to Skip:
Hi Skip,

We may see you at Dewerstone tomorrow - I'll give you a call if we're planning on heading that way, but we have some friends staying so not entirely sure of plans yet.

There's a list of campsites nearby if you follow the link below, however there is also some common land North/uphill from the crag that you could wild camp on. I seriously doubt that there would be any real problems with responsible camping in Dewerstone wood, although I expect the landowner does not allow this, so I certainly couldn't advocate that on a public forum!

You'll be fine on Central Groove, bridging all the way - have fun!

Jay

I assume 3 or 4 teams in one day on multipitch ice is pushing queuing?

There were 3 groups/teams on the main crag today for me. Not a queue in sight.

I was at Blacknor Central/south. on the main cliff were maybe 8 of us in total. Saw 4 others way off at battleship. There were a few folk on the beach boulders/slab too.

Dewerstone was busy this weekend.

In reply to Kevster: Had a lovely sunny time at Gull Rock/Marsland on Saturday and saw two other parties in the area. No-one else was foolish enough to climb at Cheesewring Quarry on Sunday - bloody freezing!

There were icicles on Hay Tor on Sunday. We didn't climb.
