    Hi Mark, apologies for the random email, I’m trying to get some gadgets to a climber called Annie Anderson, who you mention in a blog and wondering if you’re in contact with her? If so would you mind asking her to get in touch. I found some kit in fields at Morwenstow with her name on and am assuming she may have been climbing there recently and left them there accidently.

    Many thanks
