    (2nd attempt)
    Parking at NT’s Bowderstone carpark which is free to NT members. I shall be arriving around 3pm and will start at Woden’s Face, accessed by the track leading south from the carpark entrance -(5mins walk), probably returning to Quayfoot buttress later. The forecast currently looks dry. If it deteriorates severely, we shall reschedule for Thursday at the same time.

    If you fancy a pint afterwards, we could try Wetherspoon’s beer “garden” if it is open.

    Please let me know if you intend to attend.

    I look forward to seeing you there.

    Cheers, Steve.

    Will be there. If(!) the weather plays ball, is anyone keen on doing some of the HVS’s up on Quayfoot?

    Sorry Steve, my shoulder still won’t let me climb properly … I’ll just have be patient & wait for it to mend. Not my strong point!
    Hope you have a good evening.

    The meet was attended by 11 club members (Mark, Brendan, Richard, Jamie, Roland, Jonathan C, Martin A, Matthew, Geraint, Jonny & Steve P.).
    In spite of the forecast, the Rain God was merciful, although with the exception of a worryingly slippery ascent of Quayfoot Buttress by Brendan and Jamie, all the action took place on the drier Woden’s Face where every route except Woden’s Wotsit and Wodentops was climbed at least once. Although the rock was not wet, under-use during the pandemic plus recent rainfall reduced the rock’s friction. Whilst more than a few club members complained of rustiness, nevertheless it was a busy evening and a good time was had by all. Here’s to Shepherd’s next week! S.
