    Tuesday's venue

    Posted by Stu on June 26, 2017, 8:42 am

    The weather outlook this week doesn't look promising and therefore because of the risk of rain I'm not going to risk the journey to Matlock.

    If there is a "clear dry spell" then I'm going to make the best of it and go to Windgather, otherwise I will just go indoors.

          It would be a shame not to visit Wildcat, looks ok mid-day, early afternoon anyone?

              rain is forecast for tonight, how long does the crag take to dry out?

                A while, I think more of the worry is a repeat of last week, damp ground light easterly wind NOT blowing down the gorge.

                  I can do early afternoon but Met office has Matlock damp in the afternoon :-(

                    Adrian is away so I am not going to do an official change of venue, can people from lunchtime on-wards just update with what crag they intend to visit.

                      From my reading of the weather forecasts it looks like the predicted deluge is getting later and later and it should be dry but cloudy until 10 pm. If people want to switch venues why not try switching with Stanage robin hood mext week or the second outing to bamford on 29 aug? Having said that, changes on the day are always fraught and i think you will be ok until its pubtime anyway.

                      No, I think it's not a goer, perhaps we could do Wildcat one afternoon next week
