I've just moved down to Malvern and don't currently know any climbers locally.

I'm keen to climb sport or trad (up to 7c or E5) in the Wye/Avon or other South West areas. Would also like to grab a couple of days at Nesscliff. If anyone's open to meeting up for a climb in the future drop me a message. I'm free weekends but also some days during the week, and work quite flexibly so can be available on good weather days.

I live Evesham, but train at Redpoint Worcester. They have a partners group for the wall, but use it for outside as well. I work erratic shifts and get week days off so may give you a shout.
Whatever and whoever you meet, would recommend Brean and Cheddar for your grades. New Quarry avon is not bad and good routes on GO wall wintours, Ban-y-gor or South Wales sandstone e.g Sirrhowy also recommended.

Cheers. I used to live in south Wales so fairly familiar with the Wye and valleys, done a bit at Brean but nothing in Cheddar. Keen to get a few of the bigger ticks on GO Wall done this autumn.

Hi, I also live in Malvern, and have a fairly good knowledge of the crags in the Malvern Hills as I've been exploring them for a while. The climbing round here is not great (but better than nothing!), and I don't think there's anything above E1, though I have come across some possibilities not in the guidebook. I can climb pretty much any time, but we are worlds apart in terms of standard, so probably not much use!

Cheers

Hi Nicky
I live in Malvern and know some of the crags on the Malvern Hills pretty well. To be honest, it's not the greatest climbing, but from Worcester it's your nearest crags, about 10 mins on the train, so worth a visit if you're keen to climb outdoors locally. Happy to show you around, it would make a nice change from soloing!
I'm often about and usually happy to go climbing 24/7 if the weather is good, so if you or anyone else fancies it, let me know...
Cheers
Dom

Hi cj, happy to help. Let me know when you'd like to go, and can see if we can fix something up. Looks like the weather might be ok on Friday or Saturday if either of those works for you. Some of the crags/climbs are easier to set up than others. Westminster Arms Quarry might be a good place to start as there's a variety of standards/lengths available, and the rock is reasonably sound.

Cheers

Thank you so much for getting back to me I really appreciate it, I can’t do this weekend as we are going to pick up some indoor climbing panels for my sons bedroom but will see what the weather looks like for next week if that’s ok

Cj
Also if you wanted someone to belay for you indoor let me know I am happy to help
Dom Goodwin - on 30 Aug 2017
In reply to Cjreid:

ok, feel free to suggest anything that works for you nearer the time. I'm generally pretty flexible to go climbing most of the time. I haven't climbed indoors for years, much more at home outside!

Cheers

That's great Dom, thanks.
Soloing ey?????? Yikes!!!
Do you or other Worcester climbers go to Chepstow much?
I'll also be keen to find people for some 4x4 training at RP.
Cheers

In reply to nickyprice77:

Hi Nicky
Many Malvern crags are fairly low, so well suited for soloing or bouldering, especially when I manage to pick the ones with the difficulties lower down, a bit scary a couple of times when I've got this the wrong way round!
Currently, I mostly climb in the Malverns or much further afield (typically Snowdonia or the Alps). I'd definitely be up for exploring some new places more locally, would be great to go to Chepstow or elsewhere some time.
I normally climb outdoors, but happy to give indoors a go.
Cheers

Dom Goodwin - on 05 Sep 2017
In reply to Cjreid:

Hi CJ, Sunday may be possible, not quite sure yet as I've got some provisional weather dependent arrangements further afield, but suspect they won't work out as the forecast isn't looking great for the higher hills... Certainly worth giving me a shout nearer the time.

>bought a rope bag slings and some beaners

Ha! never seen them spelt that way before! possibly spring beaners? no, more likely to be runner beaners! Makes sense now, the spelling works fine. ;)
