    Hi KMC members.
    The first evening meet is a week on Tuesday. Headend Quarry is a great venue to get going again after a long break from climbing – easy grades, short routes, straight forward top roping; very friendly. 30 seconds walk from the road!
    …It even catches the evening sun ☀️

    As per current 🦠 rules, the club needs to know who attends (ideally prior to the event). Please click ‘going’ below if you intend to come along on our FaceBook page (there is a link at the end of this message).

    NB I’m suffering with a shoulder problem so I’ll not be leading but can top rope, second and belay. The after-climb pint 🍻 pub will be the Sun Inn, Bassenthwaite village (as it’s got a large car park and beer garden).

    Looking forward to meeting up with you all.

    Andy Cannon
