Its fair to say that as a club its hard to officially sanction or organise lift shares, but the use of the FB page to set up impromptu trips is definitely encouraged. On lift shares, its for everyone as an individual to abide by guidelines and their own judgement as they see fit.
I'm a Cambridge-based climber who got into it a couple of years ago (after a bit of experience many years ago in my teens) and am looking to take my indoor climbing habit outdoors. Was planning last year be going on trips with the CCCC, but the pandemic seems to have put paid to all club activity for quite a while.
Thing is, I'm not yet up to leading trad, so ideally I would want to be climbing with a confident lead in order to first become a more experienced second, then lead myself. Last year in gaps between lockdowns I managed a two-day course in the Peak and a day with an instructor on sea cliffs in Pembroke. I'm happiest seconding around the VS grade and can set up anchors, abseil, belay, etc. What's your own level of experience?
Not much gear, but I do own rope, harness, helmet - and car. Very keen to get away for some climbing trips this year.
