I have just got interested in rock climbing after doing a few climbs over the last few months. I am based in Edinburgh and I have also joined Ratho climbing centre to build up some strength. I'm really enjoying it. What I am finding difficult is finding people/clubs to join so that I can head out to crags at the weekend and climb. This is what I want to achieve eventually.

If anyone is heading out and is able to invite me along that would be great. I'm keen! I am male, 31, from Edinburgh and I am fit. I have been going weekly to Ratho to build confidence and so far this year I have done 2x multi-pitch scrambles/easy climbs in Cairngorms and 3x easy multi-pitch rock climbs at Lake District. So I am not totally new to it but I would still class myself as a beginner.

Love the outdoors, views, social and I already spend most of my weekends out in the hills doing hiking. I just want to do something different for a change and a bit more challenging and adventurous.

Cheers

Rory

Hi Rory 

Try  the EMC (Edinburgh mountaineering club.) https://www.edinburghmc.org.uk/emc/

Good mixture of walkers, climbers and scramblers. We meet first Thursday of every month at the Barony bar in Embra.

Cheers

Keith
