/ Recommendation for Courses in Dorset
I am interested in starting up sport rock climbing, i have done a few climbs here and there before but nothing for 6 years-ish!! Bad me!! I never took any courses either, i just got advice from friends who i climbed with, or just took a local guide out for the day so i would like to get back into it with doing a course so i know what i am meant to be doing and also be safe! I don't bounce so well these days!
Has anyone out there got a recommendation on a course and course provider to get me, and a friend out climbing the walls in Dorset, preferably Swanage, Portland or somewhere nice and chilled out nearby. I say Dorset as it is gorgeous and i live quite near to there so it is convenient for me.
Also, does anyone have any advice for me on finding climbing partners/friends as i will probably be more obsessed with going climbing than my friend.
Any advice would be gratefully received as i now have wheels and am itching to get climbing.
Been out today climbing on the sea cliffs in the sun - great area!
