Hi Bowliners,

A great weekend for getting outdoors and it's good to hear that club members were out in force making the most of the good conditions. Well done to Silas for grabbing a clean ascent of The Sloth at the Roaches on Saturday.

Keeping with the climbing theme make sure you checkout the new feature photo on the club homepage of Masa on the first ascent of his new route in Orkney, Crackin' Hoy.

The minutes of the last club committee meeting are now available on the website in the Members Area. The next committee meeting is on Wednesday 21st August, all club members are welcome to attend the committee meetings.

Please get your places booked for our Cornwall trip ASAP as we need to confirm our numbers to the campsite. You can book your place now via the website.

  • Tuesday nights as always we are getting out bouldering fix at The Climbing Station from 6pm. I'll be there for a change so if you can make it I'll see you later!
  • Wednesday evening running - This week meeting at Bradgate Park main car park, 18:30. All abilities welcome!
  • On Thursday evening we'll be climbing at Wildcat Crag in Matlock Bath. Watch-out for an email with timings shortly.

Hi Bowliners,

We had a lovely time at on the family meet at the weekend. The weather was perfect so adults went climbing in the pass, whilst the youngsters did some walking, lake swimming and visited the slate museum. We've got a couple more family meets this year, including a joint family meet with the MAM club, check these out in the meets list.

It was good to see club members out in the Peak District this weekend. Although the weather is a little too hot in the alps right now where some club members are currently seeking shady climbing. Great to see that a suggestion is is already out there for climbing at The Roaches this weekend.

Once again have a great week everyone!

E-mail sent by Andrew Potter, Tuesday, 18th June 2019 @ 11:37pm

Hi Bowliners,

Nope I still don't like this wet weather, especially when my Facebook news feed keeps showing me pictures of club members climbing in glorious sunshine in Lofoten (really must go there soon). Still apparently a heat wave is on the way so perhaps we'll have some more Peak District climbing for you to enjoy.

Don't forget these weekly updates will be coming out on a Tuesday so if you want anything including let me know before Tuesday lunchtime.

  • Tuesday nights as always we are getting out bouldering fix at The Climbing Station from 6pm. 
  • Wednesday evening running - Meet at 6:30pm in the main Bradgate Park car park. All abilities welcome!
  • Thursday we are watching the weather forecast. Will send out an email when we've decided on the venue for this week.

Once again have a great week everyone!

Hi Bowliners,

We don't like this wet weather, it messes with our dreams of summer days/evenings of climbing, walking, biking! But at least we live in an age of good quality indoor facilities so be sure to join us this week for one of our evening meets which will likely be indoors.

Talking of indoor activities one of our club members, Liz Morrison attends the Callsithenics session at Ape Index on Mondays. Liz says all are welcome to come and join in!

Hopefully you've all noticed the exciting meets being added to the list on the website. Still a few more to add, our summer meal on the weekend of the 17th/18th August, and our Cornwall meet on the August bank holiday week. We'll be sending out invites to book places for these shortly so get them in your diary!

Don't forget these weekly updates will be coming out on a Tuesday so if you want anything including let me know before Tuesday lunchtime.

Have a great week everyone!

Hi Bowliners,

It was a slightly wet weekend in North Wales for our club hut meet. However the weather didn't stop Rob Pullen finishing the Welsh 1000m Peaks race in a new PB of 5 hours 7 minutes! Perhaps an attempt to beat the record for the club hut to Snowdon summit and back is on the cards?

Don't forget these weekly updates will be coming out on a Tuesday so if you want anything including let me know before Tuesday lunchtime.
