Hadrian’s Wall Meet Report 24th – 27th May 2024

What have the Romans ever done for us? Luckily they provided an excellent venue for our recent Hadrian’s Wall away meet – though we could have done with a few more of their aqueducts to drain away some of the rain that fell over the weekend.
On Saturday the climbers managed to “carpe diem” and tick off lots of routes at Peel Crags. These included two “Top 50” routes – Overhanging Crack (VS) and Sunset ( described in the guidebook as the best Severe between Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish border). The rest of the party kept busy with activities including e-biking (Dick and Lin), landscape painting (Gordon) and walking along sections of the wall (everyone else). Saturday evening was very sociable with groups from both campsites joining up for BBQ, paella and virtuoso guitar playing by Gordon and Paul G.
Weather conditions deteriorated on Sunday providing an opportunity for people to visit the impressive nearby archaeological sites. Bill and Paul E ventured into Kielder Forest on their mountain bikes – though many of the tracks would have been easier to negotiate via canoe.
Many thanks to everyone who participated in a very enjoyable weekend with lots done despite the unfavourable weather. Photos to follow on the Castle Facebook and Instagram sites. Paul E
