Scene: Thursday 1am, Millennium bridge Context: After playing cards at Viki’s house we all headed of to Rosie’s to sleep but decided to go on a post-midnight walk beforehand. Me: “Im not even tired, could we not just go to the Dales now?” Viki: (very eager) “Can we actually!!!?” Rosie: “I do kind of want to” Me: Oh don’t say that I really want to now” After this we started planning how to get food and fuel and who we could leave callout... read more

Our Grey Wife adventure really started the night before, where at one am we found ourselves leaning over the slanted railings on Millennium Bridge and watching the reflection of the moon in the grey water.

This was the fourth proper “Masongill Event” trip since the project was coined, Marble Steps being the first, the Large Pot fiasco being the second, and Ireby Fell – Duke Street II the third. In the last of those trips we thought we had identified where the start of the Ireby Fell/Coates Cavern connection was (as well as the start of the Cripple Creek series), although the Large Pot had been... read more

"It's not chaos, it's organised disharmony" Our trip began in a shakehole, where behind a wooden fence was a very scenic rift, complete with moss and waterfalls. After a brief rest from the walk up in the sun, Paulina and Rosie began climbing down, followed shortly by myself, Ade of course picking this moment to begin an animated discussion about how loose the boulders right above me were. The first pitch was quite fun as you had to lower yourself through... read more
