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 Ďiní since January..

Havenít 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...)
