    Park in the Gatesgarth Farm carpark (at the end of Buttermere).

    Good selection of quality easier routes up to 40m long on several buttresses which link well together to give a good days climbing. Best routes are Mitre Buttress Direct(VD), Harrow Buttress(D), Slabs West(HS), Suaviter(S), Oxford and Cambridge Direct(MS), Dexter Wall(VS).

    One and a half hour uphill walk from Gatesgarth Farm. Farmer charges £4 to park but there are other places nearby. Or walk from Buttermere, takes about 15 minutes longer.

    We’ll meet at the crag, I will aim to be there for 11am.

    Please let me know if you are going to attend this meet.

    Traditionally the pub venue for this meet has been the Fish Inn.  This is now under new ownership and is now called, in a travesty of history,  the Buttermere Court Hotel.  We’ll give it a chance.

    If the weather forecast on Thursday looks unpromising I’ll send out a note.

    Thanks Richard. I hope to attend, although Saturday’s weather forecast will have to improve a hell of a lot to tempt me out! Cheers, Steve.
