Note that Fiend was not one of the ascents of WWWAMWM, he instead clawed his way up a nice 6C sqiudgy thing after much sieging. And I was psyched - just not for "Sector r-man" when darkness was falling.

Slipstones was disappointingly damp at midday but by half two there was sun, a breeze and good nick. Last hour properly mint conditions.

Glad you got some in JB, big call driving up there from Sheff today.

Time wise it's no further than Ilkley/ Skipton, and a fair bit less than Malham etc. Just relieved we didn't sack it for the 'cliff.

Woodhouse extremo primo today. Blowy as fuck and bone dry.

Shipley also dry but considerably less windy and less crispy. Both would have been more tolerable than Almscliff I suspect.

Scout Hut surprisingly dry and clean on NYE. Rest of Calderdale in world class clag but might well have been blown dry now.

If it's anything like early, the rain hitting the ground there will have come from clouds in Oldham!

Brimham mint as a scrittley pack of rounded extra strong mints today, on anything clean. Lots of Yorkshire should be good tomorrow I think.

Maybe, but it's currently absolutely pissing down. Quite humid tomorrow as well, so god knows how much drying will be happening. Eastby will be dry if not, ill gotten gains is very good.

Jason's does dry a lot quicker since the trees around it were cut down. Still might not be a great idea tomorrow though, it's been so wet recently.

You do still use the crimp a bit. Be 8A without it.

Thinking of Caley today. Does anyone local have any info on whether itís dry?  Or would Almscliff be the better choice? Thank you in advance.

Walked the dog around Caley roadside about half an hour ago, most of the things that I saw were pretty dank, but the usual reliable problems were fine (Breakfast, Blockbuster). Clear blue skies by the Chevin right now, but as usual there's not much wind around. Almscliff should be bone today.

Word on the street is that the cliff parking is already rammed so best bet would be parking in the village and walking up, which isn't as long a walk as you might think.

Surprised by this, it was relatively quiet yesterday.

Aren't lamp sessions banned at Almscliff?
