UFOs featured that last time on the walk up in the dark.
Hut is in an amazing spot. Don't drive any further than the little car park...

Hi David,

I am a new member to the Leeds club, but an old lag for climbing - as I climbed with the Huddersfield people for years. I am interested in coming along and meeting a few people if that is OK. When I try and look up your address to send you a cheque it just tell me I am 'unauthorised'. Could you email me your address separately - bruce.grieve@manchester.ac.uk

Hi Bruce,

I've just sent you an email as requested.

Old climbing lags are always welcome...

Hi all

Is this meet suitable for newbies? I've not been to any meets etc yet but I'm to get involved in the club, either walking or climbing. I can lead climb indoors but haven't done anything outdoors, I'm keen to learn though!

Hi Ed,

Yes this meet is suitable for new members.
I will send you a PM so you can get in touch if you have any questions about how to book on the meet and what to expect.

At this time of year climbing might not happen on the meet, but you never know, there might be a spell of fine weather next weekend.

On the subject of climbing - there will be lots of club members at Leeds wall every Tuesday from now until April. If you climb then this is a good opportunity to meet others in the club.
There is also a new members Tuesdays at the pub on the first Tuesday of each month.

Dave.

Due to a last minute surge of interest in this meet I have negotiated some extra places in the hut.
