Who's the lime caller? Did the lime actually get called? just the usual shambles...

10degrees and a Northwesterly on Thursday/Friday, see you all on the grit

:lol:

I think a missed call can be forgiven this year given the circumstances. If the clipstick baton is passed to someone with more personality the next year, sobeit.

This year would have been a superb data point for the calling being an indicator of climate change study. And now itís all been fucked away.

I demand a UKB enquiry. With a poll.

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

Now get out there and CRANK!!

It seems that last year's apparentaly late Lime Call was actually a really early 2020 call.

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.

At least we met all of JB's requirements  ;D

Clearly we need for for the Limestone Advisory Group. This group would be refreshed each summer - with a hand over from the old LAGs to the new. Their role is to advise - er the caller on when to make the call.

Alternatively, we could contract Serco to create a series of national centres capable of doing - (picks a number at random) 200 000 calls a day.

A more appropriate moniker for this quango in these times might be the Science-led Limestone Advisory Group, with an appended (S) for those who are chosen by polling, standing for Seconded.

Itís clearly an important issue to get right. So maybe the SLAGs could advise the LAGs?

Minter than replacing your chalk with crushed Polos this evening at Helsby. Velcro would have seemed slippery in comparison. I *almost* feel sorry for the lime ball dropper caller this year.

Similar at Burbage, except that I had some coordination problems and had a bad fall whilst warming up, also had joint pain which meant I couldn't put up with wearing climbing shoes.
Still, better than limestone
