Great turnout for WiltonFest 2016 despite challenging conditions

“It’s warm and wet out there. That’s good if you have to fight a war in a jungle, but bad if you want to do some climbing in Wilton Three!” So said Robin Williams in the film, Good Morning Vietnam. Well, luckily for the Bolton-cragger, this year’s ever-popular WiltonFest was not warm and wet, but cold and wet.

I'm sure someone will already have picked up the typo on page Egerton/3 but just in case... In the 'Bouldering' paragraph, the final word (challenges) is missing an e.

The guide looks marvellous! I really appreciate the work that's gone into its creation. Many, many thanks to all who contributed their time and efforts.

Hey thanks MJB, very kind of you to say, and glad that all the volunteers' efforts shine through. And thanks for the heads up on the typo, that one almost made it over the wire ;-)

The new guidebook looks truly fantastic and thank you for all the hard work that has gone into this endeavour. Will the guide include the scarce but still existing old aid routes in Denham and Hoghton and later additions such as New Wave Breaks (A2) on Chimney Buttress, Wilton 1? Out of vogue maybe but in keeping with the tradition of the quarries and still fun for some.
