Rambler's Retreat Churnet: Lost Climbing Bag

 SDM 22 May 2020

In a moment of stupidity, I managed to drive away leaving my black Lowe Alpine rucksack on the floor outside the Rambler's Retreat with my shoes, my glasses and most of my climbing kit inside.

I'm heading back there now in the hope that is still there.

If anyone has picked it up, please let me know.

Phew!

Is the car park still closed?

So relieved! Having to replace it all would not have been fun.

It is.

With considerate parking, there is enough space in front of the car park and in the nearby lay-bys to cope with demand on a weekday while still leaving room for vehicles to pass and to pass each other.

I'm not sure what it's like on weekends, it wouldn't take many cars to exceed capacity.

There's other options for parking if it does all fill up but they mean significantly longer walk-ins for some buttresses.
