Hi UKC members! As mentioned in the title im looking for someone to learn to climb with. Im a rope access tech currently but looking to get into climbing as a sport and not a career. I have about 700h ours on the ropes, i realise not all techniques are transferable but i'm very willing to learn. Keen for outdoor indoor - whatever and whenever, i have a LOT of time off :) Please reply to this or email me! Cheers

In reply to blairbear: There are a couple of indoor climbing walls in Birmingham that should be ale to help. I know Redpoint should be able to put you in touch with other people keen to learn. Also, If you go to Redpoint on a Wednesday evening, there are a couple of clabs that meet up there that should be able to help

Hey try the Birmingham Bouldering Centre on Water Street, B3 1HL.
I know its only bouldering, but I am a regular climber on the ropes, but have been visiting the Birmingham Bouldering Centre and have improved my technique loads, the guys that run the centre are climbers and are very knowledgeable on all aspects of climbing, and they give you help where needed. I have met up with some new climbing partners. Its great.
