/ Anyone in Gloucester area?
Hi I did a beginners/ropes course in climbing a while ago and really enjoyed it..Now interested in finding people who i can get into climbing with a bit more. Ive climbed at the warehouse centre in Gloucester and live near there. If anyones interested in doing some training and outdoor routes that would be great.. cheers Alistair
Consider joining either Extreme Sports Central or the Gloucestershire Mountaineering Club, both of whom have regular sessions at the Warehouse. The wall also runs an open social climbing session, I think on Thursday evenings, where they pair you up and there's an instructor offering some coaching.
Ah thanks..didnt realise they had the evening groups
No problem - I hope you find a group that works for you.

ESC Gloucester details are at http://www.extremesportscentral.co.uk/index.php/club-night/gloucester/ but most things are done by Facebook I think.

Just a heads up, I went to the adult social night at the warehouse a few times last year while I was partnerless. It's worth quickly phoning ahead in the day to tell them that you're intending to be there. I showed up a couple of times and they'd told the instructor to not bother as they didn't think anyone was going to be turning up which was a tad frustrating!
Dan Varian recently made the third ascent of Transcendence E8 6c, one of Northumberland's proudest and most fearsome routes, which has resisted attempts by some of the country's finest climbers for twenty five years.
