Hi Doylo,

Whats the situation with the orme this weekend? Think the holidays are over soon, at least my missus is back to work monday. So is this friday the end of the restrictions?

How many hrs after hightide is LPT accessible too? I get this wrong pretty much everytime and get chased off the crag after a couple of routes.

Cheers

The BMC RAD says the 8th September, so I'm afraid not. I don't know the answer to your second question - and since I've history of being lowered into the chasing tide I'll refrain from guessing!
