The idea behind the Awaydays is to have a monthly day trip planned to somewhere a bit further afield - the Lakes, Wales,or maybe Yorkshire. Trips out to the local crags can be organised at the drop of a hat, but to go to more distant venues requires a bit of forward planning. It is easier to set these up in advance, even if plans have to be cancelled or re-arranged if the weather is unkind, than to rush around at the last minute. Final arrangements will be made a few days beforehand to see who's going, confirm the venue (or change it if the weather is looking dodgy) and arrange car-sharing, so we can set off early and get plenty of climbing done. Expect to get home late!
Of course we also arrange other more spontaneous trips to local crags but these don't need advance planning. If you'd like to be kept informed of what's going on, ask Sam to add you to the climbers' Whatsapp group.
