I'm based in Leicestershire and looking for some trips out over the summer. Happy to drive to Peaks, North Wales, Yorkshire, Lakes or even some local stuff. I have rope, full set of nuts, some cams and hexes. Limited experience of leading up to HS. I'm free in the week and weekends until the end of August. PM me if you fancy a trip.
