Lots of ice climbers here over the cold spell.
Any thoughts regarding the access situation?

Lockdown aside, caver access to the quarry is fine. Sign the logbook and mark any new digs on the map. Info here https://ukcaving.com/board/index.php?topic=27267.msg333650#msg333650
For some reason there does not appear to be easy to find info on the DCA site. I'll get that addressed asap.

DCA has no information regarding the landowner's view on access during lockdown.

Yeah was surprisingly good ice climbing as well, 3 pitches!, who would have thought it in the Peak!

It was surprisingly good.
Can't wait for the next big freeze. Maybe 10 years?
