Topic - Recommendations for climbing on business trip to Blackpool

Padraig-US - on 02 May 2013
Hi folks, I'll be on a business trip to Blackpool in the beginning of next month and it looks like I'll be having a free weekend to get out for some climbing. It'll be my first time to the area (third time in the UK), and I should be able to rent a car to get places. Where are the must visit areas that I should definitely go?

To help direct me, here's some details:
Probably won't be bringing gear beyond a harness, belay device, and shoes
Climb very moderate, but don't have any grasp on the UK grading system
Preference ordering of (with lead ability in YDS grades): trad (5.7-8) - sport (5.10) - bouldering (V2-3)
Alpine would be great, but again I'm planning to bring much gear so that option would be strained

Are people typically open to climbing with strangers (arranging to climb with an unknown yank) or should I be looking for a recommendation on guides too?

Thanks for any input.
