    The forecast for Saturday is currently very good and seems stable. So, this Saturday’s meet (1-6-24) at Grey Crag in on. If there is a change in the weather, we will update you later in the week. Grey Crag has a good selection of quality routes up to 40m long on several buttresses which link well together to give a good day’s climbing across the grades. The approach is an “enjoyable” 90 min uphill walk from Gatesgarth Farm (GR:319463,514999; W3W:digits.scanty.changed).
    Parking: Gatesgarth Farm has a reasonably sized pay and display car park and there are some lay-bys further up the road towards Honister. The parking is likely to fill up early. The 77C bus leaving Cockermouth at 0735 and Buttermere (where there is additional parking) at 0813 will get you to Gatesgarth before 0826.
    Timing: The good weather on Saturday has been well advertised, and it is the final weekend of half-term, so it is likely to be busy. Hence, Kath and I plan to leave the car park at 0900, to arrive at the crag at about 1030.
    Questions: s.d.price@ucl.ac.uk or 07713017740, direct replies to this mail will not reach us.
    We hope to see you on Saturday.
    Steve and Kath
