Hello Big E, Allyc, Hopefully edd and myself can be there as well, i'll bring a couple of spare harnesses as well, where are you thinking of going to ?

Hey Alan, it would be great if you and Edd could make it. I was thinking of heading to Eagle Rocks.

If no-one minds, I would be up for joining you guys on Sunday (got to love not working Sunday any more  :D ).
I have harness, shoes, nuts, rocks, slings etc. No rope or cams yet.

If anyone is coming through Belfast I'll chip in petrol money for a lift, otherwise I'll get the bus: will be a bit later but can run up and meet you easy enough.

Liam!

Unfortunately, it's looking wet and pretty windy for Sunday. Hopefully weather has a change of heart  >:(

Weather looking a bit drier although still strong winds. Will see what it says this evening.

Lou, if you car's ok, can I share a lift with you from Belfast? Will contribute to petrol. Otherwise, I can recommend joining me on the first bus 520 service... think it leaves Europa about 8:30 has you in Newcastle before 10. £13 return.

I have one. Think ropes will be the limiting factor... happy to lend helmet to whoever is climbing at the time.
