    So we decided at the AGM that the May club trip would be aimed at those new to climbing outside or still honing their skills! Basically an easy intro to the season…

    The weather looks good for this weekend so how about Saturday at Bannaminn or Fidlar Geo?

    According to the Norwegian forecast (for Lerwick!) Saturday will have rain in the afternoon. Sunday is looking OK though.

    Wind from SE so B-M might be the better bet. Greater range of grades too.

    Okay for Sat, quite enjoyed pottering about at Fidlar last year but Bannaminn would be okay as an alternative if the wind direction is better.

    All of this assumes that the flexor tendon strain I acquired yesterday evening is hurting a bit less by the weekend!

    Don’t mind really. Wind direction is better for Saturday. I’ll only be there in the afternoon – I forgot I have the lighthouse to clean!

    Count me in, my personal preference is Fidlar geo as it has lovely rock and huge range of routes, but happy to go anywhere.

    As for days – either Saturday or Sunday, or even better, Saturday AND Sunday!

    Can share/ provide transport from Scalloway / Brig o’ Fitch.

    I’ll bring spare harnesses in case anyone needs them.

    not 100% as to weather ill make it yet,
    but what time are people expecting to get there? (I’m working till half 2 so might not show..)

    but if I were to make it id vote for Fidlar Geo also – feels more like a day out to me than bannamin 🙂

    Wind direction has gone to the North now, so Fidlar should be okay. Morning looks a bit better than the afternoon, hopefully get another day like today!

    Meet at 9:30 in the car park?

    I’ll meet up wi you at da East Voe marina at 0820, as I have no idea whar Fidlar Geo is! I’ll have the van, so I can carry plenty of gear up, if anybody is pushed for room in their car.
