Hi Climbers

I am looking for 'Manchester based climbers' sometimes with short notice still can make it for a few climbs.

If you are Lancashire based, you can join in my mates around Lancashire or North area as they are out every week! ;)

I can lead VS but want to get better... I can second up to E1 or a bit more depending on the style.

My tendons and muscles are rehabilitating this year, I could do better soon. Also, I would like to do some climbs aboard as well.

My time is fixable during the week and Sunday, the weekend could be in the mid-month.

I would like to meet for indoor climbs to get to know each other climbing patterns first before going any outdoor trad climbs if you don't mind and happy with this way as well.

I am very happy with the group out climbing which is more fun, I can tag along with a group or join different people together.

Sound good to you, please, drop me a message to arrange ;)

Thanks for reading

Come on, give us a clue, what are you on about? Last time I was this confused after reading something I had read James Joyce. Is this posting a cunning social experiment for your PhD?

Evening amigo.

I think the point David55 was making is that your post doesn't seem to make much sense.
(It is late Saturday night. .. Happens to the best of us ;)

If you are looking to meet up with Manchester based climbers though, with the aim of eventually getting outdoors..
maybe a try a social night at a local wall first? Or a try-out day with a club?

Can get a feel for potential partners before heading out, and nothing beats bonding over a post climb pint.

Best of luck!

Thanks for your explained and tips! Jaytaylor
(I just home after meeting some friends and day off tomorrow for me)

I am a member of climbing club of Lancashire area and we go outdoor climbing quite often, just not really Manchester area.

I am looking for Local climbing buddies for convenient climb as more options.
It have to start somewhere and try any opportunity to building up the network in time.
If there are genuine local climbers whose are welcome for new buddy to join in, the written language barriers would not become an offence, perhaps!

To create a Joyful time with rock climbing and good companies should stay with people mind alike, that is the purpose.

Good weekend

The phrasing is slightly awkward in places, but the meaning seems clear to me.

In reply to andyjohnson0:

I am Manchester/Lancashire based, coming back into climbing, thus far indoors only, but hoping to get outside before the summer is out. It may be that kimmie and I are made for each other, but on the basis of the postings I have no idea. I am 62, male, somewhat overweight, and presently go to Rockover and the Depot, bouldering as I am billy no mates when it comes to climbing. I live in reasonable proximity to the Wiltons, Anglezarke, Cadshaw etc, and have climbed in them on and off for 40 odd years. I have a car, and more ropes and climbing gear than you can shake a stick at, gathered up over years jointly with my son who is mostly out of the country. Most of my spare time I am a cyclist and mountain biker.
I would have hoped that the original posting would have given me an idea of age, gender, approximate location, and maybe a suggestion as to which wall would be preferred for a meeting. It did not strike me at first reading, but I wonder if English is not the first language of kimmie.

Kimmie is a good friend and clubmate of mine and I hope she won't mind my trying to defend her. She was born and brought up in Hong Kong where English was her second language. The nearest I have to a second language is French, and if I were half as fluent in French as Kimmie is in English I would be really pleased with myself.
Just so you know...

Hi Kimmie,

I wouldn't worry about your message, as it does make sense.

I'm not Manchester based, however I'm happy to drive over the Woodhead for a climb. I'm hoping to eventually get back outside climbing properly (ongoing injury), so meeting up in The Peak is not an issue.

Hi Kimmie,
(I Think) We've climbed together in N Wales on Tryfan with Brad.
Since Brad moved up to Scotland I've been without a partner for indoors or outdoors. If you fancy meeting up for a session at one of the Manchester climbing walls, get in touch.
