/ Places in central Scotland to practice dry/mixed tooling?
I'm thinking of taking a pair of axes and some gear on a small trekking expedition to the north of Scotland next year. before I go, I thought I'd get some practice in but as I stay in Glasgow I was wondering if there was anywhere nearby to do so? I know the ice climbing wall at Braehead is now open but what about dry tooling/mixed venues or areas nearby?
Also, is there a general code of ethics on what constitutes a 'dry-tooling' climb when you aren't in a mountainous area? Don't confuse my tone, but I really don't fancy using public transport to travel the length of the country every week.
Thanks for the advice, I'll look into it.
There's also this place that was being developed in Edinburgh not long ago: http://www.ukclimbing.com/forums/t.php?t=495862 (check the OP's links within that thread). Easy enough access from the west if that's the direction you'd be coming from.
If in doubt - don't.
