/ Oxfordshire / Milton Keynes area climbing partner
Live near Banbury but climb at both Milton Keynes Big Rock and at Oxford Brookes. Looking to go at least once a week to either place - possibly push for more often depending on work and home comitments.
Been climbing for 6 months so fairly new. Only top rope at the moment but looking at doing a lead course in the next few weeks. Also building a rack at the moment and doing a 3 day trad course in September - so someone who would also be up for going to Wales/lakes etc would be great.
Climbing at around 5a and pushing some 6a grades. Im 31, not as fit as I was once!
Email me/drop me a message.
I'm pretty much starting myself. I try to get to Big Rock once a week but it doesn't always happen because of work. Thankfully I don't work at weekends so I'm going to spend today there. :)
Drop me a message if you're still interested.
When I was in your position I joined the Milton Keynes Mountaineering Club who meet at Big Rock. There are normally club members there most days although our official night is Thursdays.
Look out for the T-shirts and just come and say hi or ask at desk and they should be able to point you towards one of us.
Also, check out http://www.mkmountaineering.org
I have not had a problem finding someone to climb with since :)
I think thats a good shout, will give it a try this Thursday - i will be the one looking lost !
