The session for everyone, especially at the bargain price of £15 pp. A fantastic half day of climbing on rock outdoors for our first timers today. The weather even played nice and a mostly sunny, no rain day was enjoyed. The westerly wind meant that Twistleton would have some shelter from it, so after a

Fay & Ben were tackling this months scheduled challenge, walking round the Yorkshire 3 Peaks, starting and finishing in Ingleton. This Y3P route is a massive 5 miles longer than the traditional route. Meeting outside Ingleton Community Centre, we started at 6:30am on Wednesday Morning. The forecast was reasonable up until around 5pm. Now that

Jannie got in touch with us to have a half day introduction to climbing experience for himself and his two children, Natty and Ella. Over on holiday from Zambia, probably not had a lot of rain! With the weather looking decidedly damp outside, low cloud and very unconvincing forecast, we headed to Twistleton Scar. A

Junes trip to the Peak District,  Touching Rock Weekend was amazing. Not just for the bizarre and short rain downpours. Gritstone climbing at Bamford and Stanage Edge. We were soon tackling a wide range of climbs, outdoor technical grade 4a through 5a. Some excellent climbing, a 50th birthday celebration and lots of laughs.    Rain

It all started back in 2018, Amanda got in touch looking for accommodation and Y3P guides. Friday evening briefing at the Marton Arms. Thanks to Heather and Co for allowing us to use the spare rooms at the back. Challenges with the evening traffic, Nando’s and various other factors, meant for a less than ideal

Sport Climbing in the peak district. Steeped in history, folklore and tales of endeavour. But what about if you are climbing nowadays, where would you go for your first lead or first climb. Horseshoe Quarry on a week day, quiet, secluded, loads of routes, varying in grade and length. Everything from 7metre tasters to 32m

Mays trip to North Wales,  Touching Rock Long Weekend was amazing. Lots of new faces and some regulars too. Sunny, Windy, Blustery, Overcast & Rainy. Rhyolite, Igneous, Volcanic, Quartzite and Limestone rock types. Sport climbing and top roping. First time out on rock for many, but the weather was so nice and the walking so

The 65th Annual Three peaks race – 27th April 2019 The second year I’ve entered and completed the run around one of the countries oldest and most famous fell races. Supported by my super family, I set off for the registration tent and several trips to the toilet pre-race starting. Pen-y-ghent The most iconic looking

What a difference two days makes. Earlier in the week, sunshine but chilly. Today, I wake up to 2 inches of snow in Ingleton and nearly 6 inches of snow on the hills. The local passes, Newby head pass in particular, were pretty unsafe. So two of our walkers travelling from slightly further North had

Martin and Liz started the day at Ingletsport Café, before heading out on this sunny, but chilly day. Leaving the Café at 9:30, we headed up to Storrs common, home of quarrying from century’s gone past. Myths and lime kilns. Plus some intro climbing and abseiling venues. Then on past the working Quarry, gritstone pits,
