/ is it too late for sport climbing in N. Wales????
I want to do some outdoor sport climbing!
Is it too late and too cold to do it in say Llanberis?
Do you think I should do it abroard eg Costa Blanca or Mallorca?
Would you recommend an organisation such as Rock and Sun to learn to sport climb?
I've sport climbed in llanberis the whole year round - you may have to drop a grade or two to allow for cold fingers but you can still enjoy yourself!
I will try and get some sport climbing done in October or November!
Thanks for your advice!

Check the access situation first though, I believe that a number of the easier routes around Dali's Hole are now off-limits?
I think all sport climbing in Dali's hole has been de-bolted.
Much better pickings in Australia - Above the Rails and The Sidings areas are both good. If you've not got the new ground up guide, get it - it's invaluable and none of the older guides have the new sport routes in.
We are running Sport courses throughout the winter season here on The Costa Blanca.
you can check details on our website
Bare in mind when you do a course with us you stay here and you mix with a house full of other climbers and get to chat "climbing rubbish" all evening :0)
Thanks for that Rock Cat!
I am looking forward to Llanberis Slate especially slab routes!
I was taking about sometime next week!
I am planning to go with Rock and Sun if I cannot get a partner of Llanberis!
Where in Spain would you suggest?
Thanks for the recommendation Moggsy, we are looking for more Oranges this season to come work in exchange for board if anyone fancies climbing in the sun with a bit of work!
Costa Blanca guide book you can only buy second hand now as sold out.
Airport hire last week as £53 for 7 days.
