Saturday UTUP

Now Winter Hill has been re-opened I suggest we revert to the Lower Barn as our 'Usual Place'. However, I won't be there for at least a couple of weeks:- tomorrow 11th August (sorry for short notice) I'm doing the Howgills Triathlon - 18th August I'll be driving over to Anglesey - 25th August, put me down as a 'definite maybe'.

Then 1st September Coope's Doozen?

Winter Hill Has Been Re-Opened!

I spoke to the police lady who was taking down the 'Closed' signs last night, and she confirmed that we can go out to play again.

Read, Learn and Inwardly Digest

I bumped into one of our number this morning on the western flank of Great Hill. They were muttering about many things, but I took exception to one complaint in particular which was that 'there was no one at the UTUP'.
As avid readers of this blog will know, my post of 12th July notified the temporary UP shift from the Bottom Barn to Hordern Stoops. Apparently the person in question (no name/no pack drill) had seen this but had 'forgotten'! Words almost, but obviously, not quite, fail me.

Coope's doz

The new date sounds ok to me.

Would it be too much to hope that the tussocks on the way to Old Adam have suffered fire damage?

Coope's Dozen

With the access ban on Winter Hill extended for a further three weeks, shall we pencil in Saturday 1st September for our annual celebration of this route - subject, of course, to there being no further extension of the ban?
