Another reccy climb norwich 18/08/12

Hi everyone,

Possibly next weekend if your free to climb a large cedar. I will stress its not the easiest climb as im sure Frosty will be able to tell you

The plan is to meet at a location and pile into the minimum amount of cars as we can as parking is a little limited.

I would say its not a novice tree but if you feel a challenge of getting to the top then come along.

Heres the pic of the tree in this album The Past Few Days | Facebook

Ian, I've only just found this thread and am totally gutted. The reason being, we actually drove past norwich today!

If only I had opened my eyes earlier we could have called in. All the same, looks like it was a great time for all there, the heat has been a killer today though!
