/ Climbing partner in or around leicester
Circumstances have changed recently with work and family. So without wanting my climbing to take a massive swan dive over the winter or having to spend countless board (pun intended 😁) hours at home training. Is there any one else who works dodgy shifts and finds them selves off work midweek with no climbing partner?
I'm in Leicester with 4 days a week off work. I'm looking to climb somewhere indoors or outdoors within an hours drive, mainly earlyish starts for at least one of them days.
Take a look at our Hinckley Mountaineering website and Facebook pages
You should try bowline club, my partner in this club, very friendly.
I'm occasionally free (teacher by trade) but willing to climb most things up to E2 and free most weekends!
I have a full trad rack and rope.
Yes I have a few mates in bowline club, I've been meaning to join for a while it would be another good place to start!
Thanks Yes I'll definitely check them out I've been meaning to join a group since my hours have changed, is there a decent ratio of people that climb in the week to the weekend?
Other than mon-friday is occasionally being bank holidays and school hols?
That'd be the one!
Hi I’m a Leicester based climber too! I’d like to meet some more people to climb both indoor and outdoors with. I’m sometimes free on odd weekdays too due to work. Let me know if you want to organise something
Hi also available most of the week, prefer daytime as its quieter.
Craig Matheson has made the third ascent of If 6 was 9 at Iron Crag in Cumbria. Established in 1992 by Dave Birkett, the line waited 15 years for a second ascent by Dave MacLeod and almost as long again for Crag's recent ascent 12 years later.
