Topic - Swanage stake bashing dates

scott titt - on 18 Oct 2010
Here are the dates for the long-awaited Swanage stake bashing sessions Sun 31 Oct 9-12am, and Sun 14 Nov 9-12am.
Many of the old stakes are very rusty and need replacing fairly urgently.
I have new the stakes (80 of them; but they need beating into the cliff-top, this is brutal, hard work-hence the short sessions (and you have a chance too climb once the sun has warmed the cliff).
Gloves, safety glasses, coffee and buns will be provided. Some sledge hammers will be provided, if you have one please bring it along BUT only if it is in excess of 10lbs, lighter 7lb hammers don't have any impact on these beasts. Ideally bring a couple of prop forwards, the average climber is too leanly built to swing the big hammer for long-be warned.
There will be some loppers provided to cut scrub around the stakes for those too lightly built for hammering.
Please let me know if you can come via my UKC mail
Thanks in anticipation
