/ Great forum, Thought its time to introduce myself!
I'm Steve! I'm a pretty novice climber having started later in life and have only ever climbed indoors for roughly the last 5yrs on & off! What with work and other commitments my climbing progression isn't really going anywhere fast, but I'm a trier and love the challenge of it all! I like to get down the wall when I can for some practice and never walk away downhearted!
Great insight and info from the guys/girls who post on the forums as well as the videos featured on the site!
Anyway, I just thought I'd introduce myself on the forum and say hi!
Hi Steve, welcome to UKC!
Three words.... Welcome, get outside!

Cheers nick! Getting outside is definitely the next plan!
Welcome to the collective! :-)
I'm live in N.Ireland, though i'm in and out of the UK with work a lot. As a result I miss alot of club nights and meetings etc! But i'll definitely check with a few of the climbing clubs to see whats what!
"I'm in ... tomorrow, anyone fancy getting out climbing?" I've climbed with several people from the forum, novices and experienced, after replying to such posts. If you want to do this, it's a good idea to set up a profile and, once you start climbing outside, a logbook. That way, potential partners will have some idea of who they're going climbing with.

Thanks for the reply! Once I get a bit more free time from work I'll certainly do that! Cheers for the advice though!
