Hi, I am very new to climbing and by that I only mean indoors. Love it and want to start to get outside and do some climbing.

Looking for a partner who doesnt mind showing a novice the ropes,cwould rather learn safely as opposed to just cuffing it.

Happy to meet up and go for a climb indoor first if that helps.

I live in the Horwich, Bolton area

Any other help or advice is very welcome

In reply to D.botts87: Alright mate. I'm pretty new to climbing too, I live in Westhoughton. Where do you usually climb? I've been going to Rock Over in Manchester quite a lot over the last few months. Love the place. I've never climbed outdoors either, but it's something I'd love to get in to.

If you and waxydargle wish to come along on Monday nights with an informal group who can get you started you are welcome to join us at Wilton 3 next Monday from about 6.30 onwards.

This is not an offer of a climbing partnership but will allow you to learn the basics so you can look for long term partners. Mail me for contact details if you are interested.

There's four or five of the lads who live your way, and go climbing at Awesome on Thursdays. Whetn the weathers good we're outside 2-4 times a week either in the Peak or Lancashire usually.

contact CSW through the forum. Top bloke, good teacher (taught me and I still climb with him), often free during the week as well as weekends, and he's just done his SPA training so looking for newbies to take out (but seriously he's taught quite a few people informally and he's very safe, knows his stuff, and is a good laugh)
