/ Sport climbing near Suffolk or in Sheffield area
I'd be happy to drive up to Sheffield/Peak District area if there is good sport there. If there is anything closer that'd be amazing but I'm not really expecting much!
Thanks for any help
For decent sport climbing from Suffolk, go to Stanstead and fly to Spain or France. Seriously
I've actually just come back from Provence, loved it. Guess by the lack of replies I'm going to have to buy my own rack and play the trad game some more...
There's plenty of sport in the Peak on the limestone, though most of it is 6a and up, probably 7a and up for most of the starred routes (ie unlike on the Continent, they haven't really bothered bolting the easier lines). Had a look through guidebooks and there's easier stuff at Harpur Hill, Horseshoe and Masson Lees Quarries, though I'm not entirely sure any of it is good or worth the trip...
So the conclusion... it's definitely more worthwhile getting out on trad!!
Cheers Ky, just been in Langdale and it's paining me to see all the beautiful trad routes I can't climb! Buying a rack has just moved to the top of the priorities list
you could always buy a SDS and some bolts. [going to hide for the rest of the day now]
haha I grew up in Woodbridge, a nice small town compared to the hole that Ipswich which is where I'd build it over instead, maybe extend the dry ski slope as it grows???
