Topic - Back To The Rock (after 16 years! :S)

Mi7 - on 29 Oct 2013
Hi all,

Climbed alot when a teen, indoor, outdoor, bouldering, leading, and pitched climbs.

16 years later i want to get back into it, have lost all fitness i used to have some i'm right back to the beginning :S.

My aim is get too a wall once a week in the evenings after work, but i also want to practice at lunchtime in work. I work in Holmewood (outside chesterfield) and this site has been so useful in finding nearby spots!

I'm mainly looking at Pleasley Vale area, especially the Meaden Tunnel http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=19063
as places to start (tunnel good in winter!).

Downside is all climbs seem quite full on for a boulder noob, what advise do you have for technique etc, i went to a wall last week and did a 5 and 5+ but felt a little all over the place.

Cheers
