09/08/2019 – 11/08/2019 all-day

Meet organiser: Ivan

With over 300 routes graded up to 6a+ (and even more graded 6b and harder), Portland has got bags of sport climbing for you to test yourself on.  Being relatively close, there’s the added bonus of less travelling time which gives more climbing time!  With more reliable weather than some crags, and the option to climb on either the west or east side depending on the weather – hopefully we’ll have a great time.  We’re planning to stay at    http://www.osmingtoncampsite.co.uk/index.html.

  1. Matthew Lovesey says:

    I should be up for this one.

  2. Ivan says:

    Apparently there’s loads of good bouldering at Portland with flat landings, so if people are interested we can do some bouldering too.

  3. Hannah says:

    I think I can make this now. If you’re going bouldering I’ll be cheering from the sidelines though.

  4. Oliver Masters says:

    Well up for it, count me in. Will bring rope, draws, and mat.

  5. Mandy Chapman says:

    Put myself down and looks like Helen (new member) will come too : )

  6. Jim Kearn says:

    I can’t stay the whole weekend but I’d like to come along for Saturday or Sunday if that’s Ok?

  7. Ivan says:

    I’ve booked 5 pitches for Fri and Sat nights (as Matt has said he’s unlikely to be there for the whole meet). pitches cost £15 per tent per night (they haven’t got a card so will be cash only).

    I’ve also just seen that Jim’s coming too – I’ll call the campsite next week closer to the time to fine tune the booking, as there’s usually a few changes in who can make what days as the meet approaches. Please could you let us know if you’re planning to come for only part of the time or if you’re not planning on camping?

    All things being equal, I’d like to drive down early on Friday, and am happy to give anyone who’s roughly on the way a lift (I live just North of Winchester).

  8. Ivan says:

    Do you have a bouldering guidebook which you can bring Oliver?

  9. Ivan says:

    I’ve realised my kids are in a show on Friday afternoon, which I’d like to see; so I’m planning on missing the Friday and driving down early Saturday morning now.

  10. Oliver Masters says:

    Anyone else planning on heading down on the Friday? Can lift share if so

  11. Ivan says:

    I’ve created a WhatsApp group to try help make organising / co-ordinating a little easier, if you haven’t got a WhatsApp message, please can you message me your phone number via Facebook and I’ll add you. Cheers.

  12. Naomi says:

    Hi Ivan. Darren and I would like to join you for one morning…please can u let us know where u r heading so we can find you? Fingers crossed for great weather

  13. Tony Beasley says:

    Hi Ivan,

    I’m planning on coming along for the day on Saturday, but not staying overnight.

    I think Sarah has messaged you my phone number (she’s taking the kids up to her mum’s).

    Looking forward to it!
