Topic - Sandstone Open Meeting - Sunday 12th May

Bob Moulton - on 30 Apr 2013
The annual Sandstone Open Meeting takes place on Sunday 12th May at Bowles Rocks - in the bar at 7pm. From 6.30pm, there will be snacks available, provided by the BMC.

The Sandstone Open Meeting offers the chance to have your say on Southern Sandstone climbing and management issues. This might, for example, range from access issues, top-roping and other ethical issues, erosion of crags, repair of crags, bolting issues, use of chalk, groups using the rocks, bouldering issues through to the Sandstone Volunteers Group. Don't grumble to yourself or your mates about the issue that gets you going - this meeting is the place to raise it!

Last winter saw the Sandstone Volunteers Group put in many person-days work on the crags, as much if not more than when we did the High Rocks project in 2004/5. The main items to be covered include the future of the Harrison’s car park/toilet block/campsite after the Sport England lease expires in November 2014, the next phase of the Harrison’s woodland plan, and work to be done at High and Bulls Hollow.

The main items on the agenda are as below.
