Beginners' Meet Photos

The beginners' meet on Friday 25th to Sunday 27th of June 2010 was attended by about sixteen people. It all started on the Friday evening with the usual beers and planning in the Coledale Inn. Those too lazy or unprepared to cook their own breakfast were able to avail themselves of the excellent hot sandwiches, freshly baked bread and packed lunches available from the Braithwaite General Store.

On Saturday, parties visited Gillercombe Buttress, Raven Crag and Glaciated Slab. On Sunday most people went to Brown Slabs at Shepherds' Crag. After most people had left early for a variety of reasons, some not entirely unassociated with the football, those remaing were able to make a leisurely ascent of Little Chamonix on a rare crowd-free evening.

Afterwards, we retired to Bob's Smithy for a well earned drink. However, some wag must have told them we were coming because we were greeted with this notice on the car park wall:
