Hi, I'm going to be down in Poole, Dorest with work for a week middle of the month so would like to get to a climbing gym in the evenings.
Where do people recommend?
I look to be tantalisingly close to Swanage but fear it's a bit early in the year for evening climbs on the sea cliffs.
Unfortunately I'll be without a car

Cheers

Bad news: The only climbing wall close to Poole is QE in Wimborne.
I'm not sure many people would go as far as recommending it, and without a car it's probably not worth the effort.
Calshot near Southampton is a *much* better wall, but it's an hour's drive from Poole and I don't know what the public transport possibilities are.

Without a car Calshot will either be a very long walk or an extremely long swim!

Hmm... oh well, I'll probably have to train harder at the weekend to make up for it.
Thanks for the info anyway
