Hello all

Im planning on taking a couple of people out on sunday to introduce them to climbing on rock. I have a copy of western grit and was planning on going to windgather as it seems to be an ideal location. Was wondering if there was another option which would be less exposed as the forecast is for a fairly windy day.

Any suggestions for suitable alternatives would be much appreciated.

Thanks

In reply to Iron Face: Not the prettiest of places but Hobson Moor Quarry could work. There's a few easier routes there. I remember 'pocket wall' being nice. Sheltered & quick drying too.

Difficult to match wimberry for really easy routes I think but

Hobson Quarry has some good routes and good anchors which might be more relevant, Windgatherer is difficult to set up top ropes etc
