/ Climbing partner in London (the castle)

I recently moved to London and am looking for a regular climbing partner (indoors, also outdoors - but no trad), preferably in the castle (is there anything else in that area?). I am a safe belayer (certified in Norway), but no crack leader, and not too serious about myself, and while I don't mind climbing with more experienced people, you might get bored;).

Give me a message!

I climb at The Castle but boulder only.
Mile End is not too far away and there are lots of knew walls opening up.

What about Fairlop boulders?

Thanks for the tip! Any other advice to a London newbie when it comes to climbing/mountaineering (I just moved here from a mountain village in Arctic and am desperate to get out

For outdoors you could join a club or just advertise here.

You can do courses at Plas Y Brenin, Glenmore Lodge or just hire an instructor for the day.

We could climb in The Peak together.

You really have to ask?

In reply to Oceanrower:

Yes.

Is he referring to the 'climbing I'm The Peak together' part?

In reply to Mountain Spirit:

I believe so. And your well advertised habit of not getting there...

That sounds a bit wrong somehow.

Hey Mona,

I Climb regularly at the Castle and always looking for climbing partners (due to unreliable mates!).
Also keen to get out of London most weekends.

I'll be at the Castle this evening with a rope and a couple of mates - you're welcome to join us (if you can bring a rope, that would be super handy).

I recommend joining "The London Rock Climbers" on meetup.com ( http://meetu.ps/c/b4Lz/ntjSl/f )

I'm one of the organisers for LRC, we have a regular group who climb every Monday and Friday (7pm meeting in the cafe), and organise outdoor trips in the summer. It's a good place to meet new people and there are lots of climbers of different experience levels at the meetups (you can normally find a friend to Boulder, top-rope or lead climb with).
