Is there a ticket system yet for DWR?

Apparently the Almscliff police can only issue penalties for dabs, not matching and incorrect use of eliminate holds. Parliament is rushing through legislation so they can enforce a one person per pad spacing policy.

There are plans to install a van with lateral flow tests by the parking.

Aren't lamp sessions banned at Almscliff?

I was moments away from deciding on going there too!

Ended up at Shipley which, after lunchtime, was also decent.

Are lateral flow tests some kind of lattice (tm) mental state test, or do they just monitor the mudflow down the field?

Oh no, theyíre designed to test whether you would walk along the top of the wall or not.

Crookrise looked v snowy earlier and doubt itís been above freezing today, likewise Earl 🥶🥶🥶. Decent sprinkling of snow on the tops driving through Shipley etc, so assume there will be a lot of dampness about tomorrow.

Attempts to find dry rock in Stanton Moor/Stanton in the Woods failed drastically

I note that itís meant to be less sunny and a bit more windy than previously forecast tomorrow now, I guess this could potentially mean there will be options to brush dry snow off stuff rather than dealing with seepage

Yep, several cms of snow now even at low levels. And doesn't look like stopping!

I had a bit of an engaging drive to Froggatt today after Google maps inexplicably sent me along some back roads. Making it back onto an A road was a relief...

What are conditions like at hunter's stones? Not been before but thinking of checking out hunter's roof/X-calibre after work tomorrow - reckon it will be dry?

Top of everything at Ilkley was wet today, would be very surprised if Hunter's was any different.

Think it was dry at Almscliff today though, which is quite a bit closer to Hunter Stones. Not been up there myself, but if there's a lot of traffic on top ascents on the other channel, it must be pretty dry :shrug:

Miracles aside you might be better going to a wall/ board session/ fingerboard.  The rock in wharfedale will be utterly saturated
