/ Wanted - Climbing Partner for Yorks/Lakes/N Wales
I am looking for a climbing/mountaineering partner. I am a fit and able hill walker age 30 who climbs indoors weekly, but am very very keen to get outside more, especially in winter. Have done an intro to winter climbing course climbing in Scotland up to grade III. Have led in summer outdoors to VS, leading indoors at around 6a. More than happy to second, just keen to learn! Ultimate aims are to push my winter grades and move towards Alpinsim, but feel that at 30 have left it a bit late in life.
Based in Hull, but work in York. Sunday commitments mean generally only available on Saturdays (whihc has made getting to club meets difficult), but have become very good at driving to Lakes/North Wales on a Friday night, staying at a hostel, getting out on the hills on Saturday and driving back first thing on Sunday morning.
If anyone is up for taking me under their wing, would be much appreciated.
I live in Leeds and am also looking for a partner to go on similar trips with (sneaky weekend adventures). I lead trad up to S and Winter to II. Like to think I'm pretty fit, so you won't have to drag me on the walk in. I went to uni at Bangor, so Snowdonia is my old back garden, I know it very well. Like you, my climbing goals are very much alpinism/mountaineering based, so it would be good to get out with someone similar. Appreciate that we're not all that close to one another but just thought I'd give you a bell.
Hopefully hear from you soon, George
I am always up for trips to the Lakes and anywhere Yorkshire. I live in County Durham. I haven't been climbing much recently but have been climbing for around 15 years now.
Let me know next time you are free.
