/ stanage challenge
Seriously keen for this. Did the chew valley challenge too and that was great fun.
What is the Chew Valley Challenge?
A similar event to this but held in the Chew Valley.
This one should shift the balance more towards keen punters. Andi could prove me wrong though.
What you on about? I am the keenest punter, that's all.
Did you do it?
It was well aimed at punters (whatever punters are exactly). With very few points related to grade but much more to be had by visiting numerous crags, answering quizzes and stuff.
Just a nice way to meet new climbers and have a good day on the crag.
There are punters and punters. Anyway its a just a shift, there should still be enough there for your type of keen.
Sadly missed it again, there is always another year.
+1 although just 'punter' for me watching some of the activity around the peak edges this weekend. I thought grit season was over!
Grit seasons are a bit of a fun myth, especially for keen punters. We all know hard routes have been done at surprising times of year and some crags are only really climbable in a hot summer; even if most won't choose the sweatiest part of the sweatiest day.
Wednesday morning bump.
Sounds like fun, I'm picturing a queue on "Led a Dance" at the start and/or end of the day!
I'd love that to be true but I suspect not :)
It 'leads' into quite a few theme possibilities though.
Ermm......how many extra points does a pregnant climber get for the team ascents ?
Is it ~X weeks x X points?
With a bit of conniving, we could be in with a chance !
Anything you can get past us counts. The difficult bit would be the young climber making a serious attempt at all routes ;-). However, I'd say double score for a climber from under represented groups at least and the theme possibilities are good as are the costume ones.
A link to the other thread, as there is some Q&A there as well.
