Lets hope there is a good turnout from locals as there are always voices questioning the need to the Peak area meets to go 'on the road'. If people from the SW peak want this continue they should be turning out in significant numbers. There is no need to be a BMC member just interest in access and other current issues under discussion, with a focus on the area in question. The meet also gives a chance to climb/walk before hand. Anyone struggling for partners can always post here to join up with others.
Would love to attend meeting but work beckons from 4-10pm. If weather is fine would happily do some climbing until 3pm if anybody needs partner. Nik

Sorry to hijack the thread, but where and when was Mill stone bolted? I must have missed this in the news feed...
