Gather round, gather round.
The calling is abound
As the lime is here i know
For the daffodils have begun to grow

Coaxed from yonder plains
The crow, a footing he gains
So once again go out and strive
And embrace that feeling to be alive

May blessings be upon the crimp.

Heres to long and prosperous season!

JB was at Rheinstor from the look of things. A lucky escape for everyone involved. It's 10'c and raining in Glasgow, so a fine call as usual.

Crimp budgie shambles as usual. Warm temps, seep free crags, Shark wobbling up the Oak, and still no call. Grit season lives on.

Has grit season started? :)

To be fair - lime has been largely ‘in’ since January..

Haven’t we covered this before?

Ah yes...



The lime does its thing and the grit does its.

Any connection is only in the mind of a conflicted climber who hasn't discovered their true calling.

Good call. I think you can have the honour this year. Definitely the end for now. Churnet season is open!

A late call I know but fear of an early call damning us to a wet summer clouded my judgement.

In hindsight it should have been called potentially 2 weeks ago.

But an offering I provide as an apology. An ancient peak tradition of doing an existing boulder but in reverse and giving it a new name and grade

I present Isolation 8A. Quarantine but in reverse (starting as for alpha)

Now get out there and CRANK!!

Brilliant stuff. I once did the same here with a problem here named Stanley, but I named the new one Yelnats. Just to make everything more useless.

Are your ankles swollen too? Any unusual food cravings? (Salad etc...)

The Spring like weather today reminded we need a caller as Haydn is on his travels.

Any suggestions?

I nominate Nai. As a regular practitioner of brown and white rocks - I think he’d be a steady hand 😃

Errr, it's not supposed to be a dabbler. It's supposed to be a dyed in the wool over-biting diet-obsessed crimp fiend anorexic wierdo with no aesthetic sense whatsoever who once tried grit but didn't like it cos there were topouts and slopers and slabs and scrittle and beautiful moves requiring poise and grace. Or you'll unbalance the White and Dark Peaks and bad things will happen. Like plagues, floods etc. Traditionally it's also been a hapless klutz who drops the ball, misses the call and can't do more than one season without quitting, but I think those are optional.

I bow to your knowledge.

What JB said. It needs to be some cellar dwelling tendon who gets a rash when they go into the sunlight.

I nominate WFT, but mainly because I think he hates climbing on the grit.

 I'd nominate Mat Wright. Don't know him personally but his credentials are impeccable.
