/ Malham cove center parking
Can we please try to be nice, for a couple of reasons.
1) its a great free place to park in the village
2) the parish council allow climbing at the cove and it would be annoying to piss one off.
3) I just want to go climbing not act as some mediator
its still dry and there is no laying snow up here.
I believe there has been trouble before with people using the cove centre car park as a doss/ toilet. Just goes to show how thoughtless some people are.
We lost Craig y Forwen due to thoughtless actions. Let's hope history does not repeat itself.
I think the point is they were and the attitude that climbers would never do such a thing/drop litter etc shouldn't prevail. In the grand scheme of things its not a major crime to doss in your car somewhere, its just that access at Malham is more sensitive than people imagine and hopefully the climbers involved were just a bit uninformed.
If I have a choice between sleeping next to buildings or 5mins down the road be somewhere out of the way and quiet and where I'm not going to be bothered (and can go to the toilet out of view) it seems a no-brainer.
Your man may have got the wrong end of the stick on this occasion...

So sorry, that was us - but bit of a misunderstanding - we weren't intending on staying in the car park! We'd just got back from the pub when he came and spoke to us, and were leaving anyway...
Thought we were polite, tried to make it clear we didn't intend to stay - didn't mean to piss anyone off.
