A reminder about this meeting next Tuesday. Agenda is now on line at http://community.thebmc.co.uk/Event.aspx?id=2911
Looks like it will be an interesting meeting!
Especially the dry tooling discussion.
It'll be discussing a position statement. Can't see there's much to discuss. Unless someone is planning on bolting up a grotty valleys quarry for dry tooling. Which wouldn't actually be an awful idea.
Most routes on South Wales sandstone quarries were created by dry tooling in the first place!
Temple Bay through to Rhoose should be the dry tooling area of choice.
Although Llangattock's pretty dirty and a bit of dry tooling there would not go amiss.
Ahhh, no need, I'd totally forgotten about the Bridge in Swansea:
Using that bridge in Swansea as a drytooling venue? Was it your idea? No stick incoming from me about that. Seems like an ok idea.
