/ Brean Down
damp in places but not too bad. The left side of boulder cove ie up to Tide Rising was dry.
Thanks for the update Guy. Unfortunately I can't convince anyone to go there for the climbs up to Tide Rising tomorrow. Will have to be another board session..
Don't suppose anyone has been there lately? Cheers.
Or any ideas on split rock quarry? Heard it was a decent winter venue.
Split rock may be dry but it will be the wind tunnel of hell at the moment.
Thinking to head over this weekend, did you make it down at all (or anyone else)?
Nah, went to TCA. It was wet on Wednesday (sleet I think) and not a great forcast for the next few weeks...
OK, cheers. South coast is looking a bit better at the minute, will need to be a a last minute decision by the looks of things.
Costa del Brean hasn't got a patch on the sunny resort of Severn Beach. There's even a t shirt celebrating it complete with holiday airliner.
Although it has gone off a tad since they drove the second severn crossing through the resort.
Last time i climbed brean down it was worrying top outs on loose sandy grass slopes with a dig your heels in belay. Has it improved say by putting stakes in?
