/ Want to start winter climbing...
I don't know alot about it, but have trad experience (some multi-pitch as well) anyone willing to take on a partner they would have to show the winter ropes? The reward would be a cheeky staff discount from Cotswold outdoors ;)
When does the winter season start?
Perhaps this should be in 'partners and lifts' sorry if it should be.
Hi mate, I'm based in West Wales. Moving just for winter? Pretty sweet, wish I could do that :P
Same boat! Live in Dundee! Have winter boots, crampons and double axes.....just need someone to head out with!!
There's plenty of people who will, just post a few days before you are definitely going and ask for someone to take you out!
Hi Steve, if you can maybe check out one of those 'gear round up' articles; you get them in the likes of Climber and on here from time to time. Everyone will have different opinions on the best kit to get depending on one's ability and the amount willing to spend etc.
Boots - can't go wrong with Nepal Extremes if they fit you well. Scarpa Mont Blancs are one alternative. I'm selling a good pair of Boreals (size 10.5) just now.
Crampons - G12s are hard to beat as allrounders.
Axes - Black Diamond Viper?
