Isn't there a northerly tomorrow? That should help with all these things. I think if you arrived in the afternoon there's a decent chance that hiyh would be fine.

Agreed, I think Earl might be good by afternoon in plenty of places.

Tender Homecomings - is exposed by Brimham standards, should be ok by Sunday I think and deffo by Monday although doesn’t sound like the crag is in great shape overall from what Bradders said. Rock is medium/good quality for Brimham on that block, will almost certainly need a clean unless someone has done so recently

The rock quality is that good it was once described as “it like climbing  up a half broken digestive biscuit”

Well?

Yep.. fantastic day.. Went to Almscliff as recommended.  Bitter wind but dry and perfect if you were tucked out of the wind.

Hooked up with a  couple of other guys.. (cheers Harry for the knowledge if you're out there).

Highlights being Flying Arete, Morrell's Wall, Crucifix  (no break)
Porkchop Slab, Hanging Rib, And the magnificent Matterhorn Ridge.

Ran out of time to properly give Dolphin BS a proper try.

So cheers for all pointers.  I reckon there looked to one or two other things to try. The odd looking good route too so I may pop back one day  ;)  ;D

Said he's from Bingley.

Tell him if he ever ventures south to the Peak to get in touch.  :thumbsup:

Hi Sam,

It's taken a while to get an account here but just want to say thanks for a cracking day at Almscliff. I've never really got on with it as busy and polished but getting stuck in to some classics gave me a lot of love for it. Went back and got flying arete the next day which I was properly chuffed with. Let me know if you're back up in Yorkshire and want to checkout the moorland grit. I'll shout if I'm down in South Yorks  :beer2:

Hi all.

So, I have an afternoon free tomorrow after some work in Harrogate in the morning. Forecast is bright/sunny, Can I assume Almscliff would be the best bet after todays rain and I assume its pretty quick drying (don't want to be climbing on damp grit at almscliff, and don't worry, I'll not be filming anything/spraying  :worms:  :lol:).

Do I need wellys to walk in??
