/ Standing Stones, Ravenstones or Rylstone on Sunday
I have got my new Over the Moors Guide and very good it is to, and it has got me pshyced, BUT will Standing Stones or Ravenstones be green after all this rain and would Rylstone be a better option for Sunday.
standing will be a better bet than raven stones
Cheers for that. Is Standing stones green at the moment?
not been for a while, should be ok on sunday though given the forecast, there might be some seepage still but there will be some dry stuff to do i'm sure
Cheers, it`s sounding like Rylstone could be the better bet this weekend.
Rylstone faces northish, Standing Stones faces south!
I bow to your wisdom on these matters, but could you elaborate.
Dovestones would be very green, it only gets the afternoon sun and it's pissing down here for a change!
Best bets in the Chew would be Robs Rocks, Alderman Rocks, Den Lane, and some of the routes below the Standing Stones. If you're lucky the odd climb in Running Hill Pits and the Wimberry Boulders may be dry as long as the rain stops. Pule Hill also drys quickly, but again just gets the afternoon sun if it's out.
It looks quite sunny for sunday and I did not think of seepage at Rylstone, whats the problem, seriously, certainly a long way from learnt up.
I'm with you on the best bets. Im not so sure the routes below Standing Stones are worth it.. unless you mean the Ocean Wall area? I'd guess Rylstone being NW facing after all this rain need a drier spell.
There's some good routes lurking in the boulder field below the main crag, and none of them seap :-)
I know, but there is a difference between good routes for locals who've done almost everything and something worth driving a long way for and climbing before most anything else! ;-)
:p It's been dry all day in the Chew and the forecast is good for tomorrow, something will be in condition even if it is just an extended boulder problem at the Standing Stones ;-)
'I have got a new guide for w peak area and am so excited by it I am going climbing...in yorkshire'
Was a cock
What a cock
Nah the break will have a small amount of seepage rendering this problem unclimbable :-?
