27/07/2018 – 29/07/2018 all-day

Meet Organiser: Caron G

The Roaches are in the ‘White Peak’ area of the Peak District National Park and although less well known as a climbing venue than their cousins in the Dark Peak they offer some excellent routes in great settings.  The climbs are virtually all single pitch trad routes on good quality rock with plenty of choice at the lower end of the grading scale.  What is there not to like about it?

Members attending are:

  1. Caron G
  2. Patrick (camping) Thursday to Sunday
  3. Pete T (camping) Thursday or Friday to Sunday
  4. Helen?
  5. Matt (camping) Thursday to Sunday
  6. Trevor (camping) Friday-Sunday
  7. Hannah ?

    Count me in, I love the Roaches! I am planning to travel up on the Thursday.

  2. Pete says:

    I would also like to attend this meet

  3. Ivan says:

    I would like to come along on this one

  4. Helen Fry says:

    I would like to come

  5. Hannah says:

    I’m in! Not sure when I will travel up though.

  6. Ivan says:

    The lure of North Wales has proved too strong, and having given in to temptation, I can’t justify another trip so soon after, so I’m afraid I’m going to have to duck out of this trip. I hope you have a good time.

  7. Matthew Lovesey says:

    I would like to come on this trip, would be keen to do Thursday – Sunday if I can pinch a lift.

  8. Caron says:

    We are booked into Hazelbarrow farm campsite, Leek ST13 8UQ for the 27th and 28th. I have booked you in Patrick for the Thursday pm. If anyone requires further days needed please contact them directly yourselves.
    I will confirm final numbers with the site on the 25th so please come 🙂 Thanks Caron

  9. Hannah says:

    So sorry Caron, I don’t think I can make this trip now.

  10. Helen Fry says:

    I have sprained my ankle and am currently hobbling around. I am going to have to see how I get on, but I am not sure a climbing trip will be a good idea.

  11. Pete says:

    I have confirmed with the campsite that there may be 2, 3 or 4 staying Thursday – Sunday (Patrick, Matt and maybe myself, and possibly Caron?) and / or 2 or 3 or none staying Friday – Sunday (maybe Helen and myself and possibly Caron?), depending on whether Helen is fit to climb, and if Caron can make it at some time, plus a contingency for maybe 1 or 2 late-comers, so they will be reserving 6 places for all the days for us. We can confirm more accurate numbers and arrival days a few days before hand.

  12. Hannah says:

    Just a small chance I might be there for some of this. Is anybody planning to climb on Thursday?

    • Pete says:

      Hi Hannah,
      There will be at 2 people arriving Thursday mid day (Patrick and Matt), so they will be climbing Thursday afternoon I expect (weather permitting), with the small chance I will also be there Thursday mid day. If Helen gets mended, I will be there Friday pm with Helen and we will all be staying to Sunday pm so lots of chances to climb with someone.
      Will you be requiring a camping slot at the campsite, and if so, which nights and for how many people.
