/ Huntsham Access
Think its Pretty much OK, just keep a low Profile.
Make sure you follow the parking instructions in the guidebook, dont be tempted to park in the bus Turning Circle, or on the double yellow Lines.
I've been out to Huntsham a fair bit during the last year or so and I've never had any problems. I'm thinking of going out there today. Just keep a low profile and be aware that, even though it didn't rain yesterday, lots of the top outs will still be a bit damp, sandy and scrattly. Also the sandstone is much weaker when wet so small damp holds might disintegrate and be ruined. Still, lots to go at/work that is steeper, drier or doesn't top out. And then there's the aggressive pheasant... :-) What more could you ask for on a chilly sunny Saturday?
Cool, thanks for the info, might head out there this weekend if the weather is ok and nothing else comes up!
I heard at the weekend that someone's pulled THE pebble out of Alex's Roof at Huntsham. Anyone in a position to confirm or deny?
Havent been out there yet, will let you know when i do!
Was at Huntsham at the weekend, was told the pebble come off and it's confirmed in the log book entry on UKC too
That's a real shame, was a classic Huntsham line. Guess that's what happens when people pull on pebbles in sandstone that's been rained on for 3 months.
From what I hear it can / could still be done just a bit harder. Yep the rain won't have helped.
