Also, are there any climbers at Warwick Uni here?
Not there any more but I used to be President of the club.
We had loads of trips to the Roaches, N Wales, Lake district, Peak District...
Not great for an evening but all an easy drive for the weekend.
Leicester Quarries are close but possibly not the best. We used to go bouldering on Kenilworth Castle.
Students eh, so whacky ;-)
PS: If you join the club at Warwick watch out for Andy King (the social sec)
Granitethorpe, Markfield, Beacon Hill, The Brand, Bradgate Park...
All world class venues in their own right, but you might want to consider the Peak district every once in a while just for a change.
Haha, yeah definately look out for andy king. He and I were out for a session on thursday and I ended up barfing out of his window on the third floor of Arthur Vick! (He came off worse the next day though ha!)
In seriousness. Trad in the peaks is only 2 hours away, but there's always cheedale for the hardcore sport. Cheddar gorge in the SW is 2 hours, good for easy sport. We go to both those places. First trip is 29th nov to the peaks where we take three minibuses and top rope all the classic lines on a super popular crag...
