Midweek evening climbing programme 2010

Midweek climbing will occur, weather permitting, on Thursday nights during the summer months. If the weather is awful, we will probably be on West View climbing wall. In general, venues are further away from Preston during the long summer evenings of June and July. Ad hoc climbing may still take place more locally - have a look at the bulletin board to see. If you are interested, contact Pete Slinger on 07591 654689 or email

The meeting place will be the venue from 6pm onwards. For information, car sharing is frequently sorted out at West View leisure centre, the bulletin board or by a telephone poll!

Les Ainsworth has produced (May '07) a document on 'Access and the Crag Environment in the North West' describing things we all can do (and not do) to maintain the local crags. These are here in pdf (28kb) and Word (27kb) formats.
