Hi - looking for regular climbing partner(s) in Lakes - live South Lakes. Presently leading up to HS. My aim is to get back to happily leading any VS anywhere and maybe HVS... but just to get out again on the crags would be great

Use to climb lots but had a few years out and just getting back into it but short on climbing partners! Free most weekends or at least one day of weekend. Meet up anywhere in Lakes to climb. Have ropes, gear and transport

Hi, we may be fairly well matched.

I've started leading VS last season and again this season.

before that is was S & HS.

There are a few I'd like to get onto in the lakes.

I'm on the east side but no problem getting over for days at the weekends.

It may be worth us being in touch.

Worth joining the local climbing club, Kendal Mountaineering Club. With 100+ members and a regular meets schedule, you’ll probably find someone with similar ambitions!

Hi,

I'm keen to find partners locally - also in the South lakes and climbing similar grades to you guys I think.

Was hoping to get out during the week (daytime) if anyone's interested, but would hopefully be up for some evening/days over the summer.

Got rack, ropes and car, happy to get out anywhere in the lakes.

Brilliant! 

Sent you an email 

There are lots of contacts on this thread now so hopefully none of us are short of a climbing partner when a beautiful, dry weekend materialises

Hi Guys

Looks like i'm in the same position too. Im based near Barnard Castle so only an hour or so from the Lakes. Leading about the same HS4b ish.

Im an SPA holder so know what i'm doing and have all my own gear is just most of my mates are now almost permanent pebble wrestlers and don't really do trad!

Looking specifically for this weekend 20th and or 21st as a start if anyones interested but am usually free 2 or so weekends a month and even during the week on an evening if its eastern side.

thanks 

Rob
