The day started as usual with Ade picking us up bright and early and driving us to the gear store. Little did we know that we were about to embark on an impressively faffy trip. We scrapped our original plan of a Simpson’s pull through due to the duck and (eventually) settled on a quick drop down Sell Gill. Gear was packed and we headed on our merry way. We arrived at Inglesport some time after 12. The weather was glorious,... read more

As I awoke, bright and early on the morn of Saturday, I realised I was anything but bright, having decided to drink far too much at the formal the night before. I had a hangover. And not just any hangover – a, I-Might-Throw-Up-Over-The-CNCC-Chairman hangover. When I arrived at the store, my fears were only confirmed when I promptly expelled the contents of my stomach. Needless to say, Josh and Martin were quite surprised to see me, and everyone was doubtful... read more

Saturday February 24th 2018 Lost John's Cave and a harnessless twat Members: Martin Albacete

Martin wrote...

It all started as any other faffstatic YUCPC day trip. We met around 7am at the store and despite the everlasting faff the packing was sort of efficient which meant that “soon” we were all set to go. Or at least that is what I thought at the moment. But I do not want to rush or anticipate the events so let’s continue with the story. We met Peter, Hannah and Fabio at Inglesport and went for some greasy, tasty... read more

'Battle-Axe Traverse' lived up to it's fearsome reputation, as I precariously wedged myself into position and reached out for the next bolt.

You're probably wondering how I ended up in this situation". The day started with an enthusiastic 7am meet at the store, this boundless excitement resulted in about an hours worth of faff... read more
