Afternoon all, 

Just a heads up but we stumbled across a kestrel nest behind The Trident (E1 5b) block today so please avoid that route for a while. Other than that, if you're planning on heading up over weekend.. enjoy, it's all currently bone dry.

And if anyone finds the back of my right hand can I have it back please? Think it was left somewhere around Freddie's Finale ...

The carparks around the chew valley are really busy at the moment so anyone heading for the chew valley this weekend you'll need to arrive early if you want a space.

Indeed, arrived at 9.30 today and managed to get a spot no problem (maybe 50% full) but on leaving around 5 the barriers were closed to new arrivals one in, one out. I'd imagine tomorrow/Sunday will be chaos.

I reckon parking at Tesco would add  half an hour to the walk in . Ten  mins to the Clarence an  a bit longer again to the res via the Forty Row. 

Probably a big ask for some climbers.

Managed to be at the base of the crag within 30 minutes today, was pleased as punch. An hour would still be reasonable

When i was a lad ( cue Dvorjak)  I used to walk an hour down to the Clarence for a Sunday morning ten o'clock meet. Then we'd decide which crag to go for.

Same, I used to get the bus (180) and meet mates. If on my own I'd run up to WR solo, run down and boulder before running back to the bus stop. Or, if I timed it wrong I carried on to Uppermill to catch the (184).

I once walked to Wimberry from Holmfirth, and just as I got the ropes out it started pissing it down!

I bet that added a bit of spice if you had just thrutched up to the Trident. I remember a peregrine flying out of a hole about a foot above my head on Dovestones Tor once, it was so quick I didn't register it at first. Also once observed hundreds of black and white seabirds pouring out of a hole about 20ft to my left in Pembroke, you wouldn't have wanted them in your face. Wimberry is a thrutchers paradise and with some jamming testpieces and horrorshows like Blue Lights, you've got to be prepared to lose some skin (possibly some flesh) -so enjoy.
