/ Crash pad Pudsey
My name is Krisjanis and I,m from Latvia. From 7th-11th of April I,m visiting Pudsey and I wanted to climb Post Hill Quarry, but as I,m travelling light I,m not bringing crash pad with me. Maybe someone want's to climb with me? I,m open to drive around a bit aswell. I,m still beginner, but passionate about bouldering. If this doesn't work out, then maybe you have any ideas where I could rent one in the area? Many thanks!
Hi Krisjais - where did you hear about Post Hill Quarry ? As far as I know, this wouldn't be a good place to boulder ! I would suggest Caley, Almscliffe or Shipley- they're all within 30 kms of Pudsey and will have much more bouldering than Post Hill. Post Hill is a good spot for running though..
^^^This! You're close to possibly the best bouldering in the UK at Caley, and it's basically only in condition in spring. Now it the time! Almscliff is good and dries quick, and Shipley Glen is an acquired taste.
I heard about it in this site! Thanks for other suggestions, but without crash pad I dont think I will visit other places. The one in Pudsey is in walking distance from a place I will live.
That quarry is going to be absolutely dreadful, I strongly advise you don't go climbing there! A 'crag' being on the UKC does not mean that climbing there is likely to any fun or even possible. Expect broken glass, used syringes, broken, overgrown rock, etc. Unused urban venues are not good!!
You'd be best off posting in the 'Lifts and Partners' forum for someone who wants to go to bouldering on those days who's got a pad and can show you around. I think I'll be around the area on those dates - give me an email and I could show you the brilliant bouldering at Caley or Almscliff.
I will keep it in mind, that means I won't go there. Your offer about Caley and Almscliff sounds perfect I will certainly write you an e-mail when I,m in the area. Hope fully see you!
