Steve Pardoe's uk.rec.climbing trip Report Archive Page

Edition of 18/04/2020

This hommage to the glorious days of Usenet is a partial collection of climbing Trip Reports originally taken from the uk.rec.climbing newsgroup. Some have been submitted by e-mail, another good reason to archive them here. Thanks to everyone who's posted her or his masterpieces, and apologies to those who've been missed out (Google Groups has uk.rec.climbing going back several years, if you want to search for more).

Writers are in alphabetical order of first name. On each page, the reports are presented mainly in reverse date order, more or less as posted, typos and all (hey, it's the charm of Usenet).

Click on the author's name for a collection of their reports, or on an individual link to take you straight there. Enjoy.
