I%u2019m not entirely sure I%u2019m free yet but will confirm nearer the time

LaurieC   on 26/11/18 @ 17:25 said:

Taz: not sure if we%u2019ve met before but keen to do this again, great views

taz  on 27/11/18 @ 9:22 said:

LaurieC if we have met then it would probably have been last year but if we have met then it will be lovely to see and meet you again

no problem Fiddle

i'm hoping that with the weather set to get a fair bit cooler than it is at the moment that we will encounter snow on the tops

TC   on 29/11/18 @ 19:00 said:

What is the scrambling like please? I'm not keen on exposure.....

taz  on 02/12/18 @ 0:18 said:

TC: the scrambling is contained --- the scramble is up the head of the valley max Grade 2 (some moves require hands and feet to be used - my dog has no problems with it) so no real exposure as such - if the wind is in the west then you'll get a helping hand up the slope - there is some Grade 1 scrambling for short stretches on the tops but it's not technical
--- hope this helps

Thanks Taz. I'll probably risk it, if I can actually get up there. Work might get in the way. Will be keeping an eye on the weather as well, so it will be a last minute decision.

Dale   on 10/12/18 @ 17:58 said:

Bad luck Ruth

So sorry to have to cancel but family circumstances have. Changed meaning I have to drive up to Peterhead beyond Aberdeen this weekend

taz  on 11/12/18 @ 15:40 said:

Hi Ruth
sorry to hear about your troubles - hope that it heals up really well and is as strong as it was

taz  on 11/12/18 @ 15:40 said:

no worries Dale

taz  on 14/12/18 @ 9:44 said:

from the reports i'm getting - there is some snow on the tops now with heck of a lot more forecast throughout tonight and tomorrow with at least 4" expected by sunset tomorrow

should be really good fun - i do have a back up scramble that is pretty much sheltered all the way round so no need to worry

also anyone that has been on one of my walks / scrambles in the past will tell you that i don't take risks with other peoples lives - we go out together and we come back together with only the face of fatigue to show for our efforts

i look forward to seeing those that are coming in the car park at the end of Hartsop village

TC   on 14/12/18 @ 17:31 said:

Hi Taz. Forecast is very cold, strong winds, icy rain and difficult walking conditions. I've been up to 600m today and it was already icy underfoot. Bearable today as sun was out but likely to be quite unpleasant tomorrow. I have spikes and don't mind being out on snow but am going to give this a miss and will do something lower if conditions are better than expected. Sorry.

LaurieC   on 14/12/18 @ 23:26 said:

Hi Taz, I%u2019ll be there to see what can be done under the prevailing conditions. I%u2019ll bring all my winter gear. See you in the car park.

LaurieC   on 15/12/18 @ 6:23 said:

Hi Taz, the forecast is now showing very high wind speeds that even I am not prepared to venture out into. So, I%u2019m going to give this a miss. Hope you see this in time.

taz  on 17/12/18 @ 9:59 said:

saturday was totally wicked - the scrambles were properly sheltered and you wouldn't have known anything about what was happening weather wise at all - the hop skip and jump across the tops was made more enjoyable by the fact that with southerly winds i managed to keep my back to it all the way round and me and my dog thoroughly enjoyed ourselves

given that everytime i put up a route and people say "i'm coming" and then back out - i won't be putting any more routes up on this board cos little point in it --- those that have got my number feel free to give me a yell and i'll come out for a stretch with you
