Most of it is tarmac Pedro so no big deal although they are very narrow and twisty so you have to be concentrating full on all the time

I know Oldcastle Lane but I don't know that one.  It would be sort of ok coming down but a fecker going up as those steps are so square edged 😲

Ive done those two Fred, the one with the river crossing is a good lane except when Paul drowned his DR350 in there.  It took us an hour to get it fired up again

Point of order here.............

 

Are we still allowed to call this crag 'black darren'  or should we refer to it as 'person of colour darren' now

Yes but he hasn't been out for a bit his missus is ill at the moment just had a tumor removed and has to have some chemo. The only reason he was out yesterday was because she was recovering from the op and he wasn't allowed to visit so rather than being stuck in he joined me
