Report of Bank holiday Meet In Northumberland 24-26 Aug 2019

First apologies for the delay in posting but well what can I say , a truly great location for a meet, we were though blessed with the weather for starters, just a shame so few people attending, the Saturday we all climbed at Bowden Doors, a bit of a shock to the system as all seemed fairly steep to me but great routes and with the heat, we were totally wrecked by about 4pm just having the the entertainment of the only one still standing climbing Paul thanks!
Sunday we sought a bit of shade at Kyloe which again had great routes and we were able to flatter ourselves on some more slab like routes. we returned to our base for a quick refreshment before a cycle to Bamburgh and for some a cool off in the sea.
Monday we went south and high up with fantastic panoramic views all around at Simonside again good routes but a bit less used and licheney, we were beaten back by the midges about 4pm , was scared to try the 3* classic vs layback crack, even if i had had 8in friends probably would not have had time to put them in.
On a note for future visits the site we stayed at was not really for tents, we were the only ones, it was very friendly though with all manner of wildfoul, ducks, ducklings, turkeys, guinea foul and rabbits, near to the chippy and COOP, maybe a better site would be the camp site at Wooler.
Hopefully people will have seen photos on facebook
