/ brimham and slipstones
i'm thinking of heading up to brimham or slipstones tomorrow (saturday).
anyone got any ideas of what the conditions are likely to be?
Slipstones will be absolutely fine - it always is. A few minutes after it stops raining it's dry except for a couple of lines on the whole crag. Faces into the sun and catches the breeze. And is the best bouldering crag in the country IMO.
Brimham is much more varied, but there'll be enough stuff dry (I hope so 'cause that's where I'm going) while lots will be disgusting.
I think we're going to opt for slipstones. i've never been thre but wanted to for a long time.
Thanks for the info.
How did you chaps get on at your respective chosen venues?
Were the conditions ok?
Looks like the cloud base was reasonably high for the first time this week, and no drizzle.
Brimham was damp and sh!t (as always, I ask myself after 3 unsatisfactory visits), drove to Almscliff and had a good day - . It may be thuggy and polished and crowded, but you can rely on it, eh?
Haha, yeah next time. Definately!
