/ Peak, ongoing
I find myself in a strange situation where I don't have any friends who climb and the club's membership is booming but the club as a whole has become very clique, to the point where despite knowing lots of climbers, bizarrely, I don't have anyone to climb with!
I'm climbing around 6a at the wall and haven't climbed for over a year until last month. I'm picking it back up slowly but I'm really keen to get out in the peak a lot more this year.
