Climbing Trips / Matt's last Climbing Trip in the UK - 2/3 Feb
« on: January 23, 2013, 08:43:53 PM »
As some of you know I am moving to Australia pretty soon but I would like to do one last climbing trip in the UK before I leave so that I can remind myself what it is like climbing in the cold UK.

I don't mind where we go. Who is up for it?


Social Events / Emigration party! - 9th Feb
« on: January 07, 2013, 09:23:18 PM »
Hi Everyone,

Elly and I are moving to Australia (Sydney) in February!! Elly got a job there with her work, so clearly this requires an epic party!

The party will be at the Waterside centre in Guildford, from 6 pm - midnight on Saturday 9th February.
It'll be fancy dress. The theme is Australia and the Southern Hemisphere. Think animals, famous people, cultures, landmarks etc.

There is a bar and if we get enough interest they'll get a keg too from the local brewery (let me know). For food we'd like everyone to bring a dish to share. Sweet or savoury, whichever you prefer.

There will be prizes for the best outfit and best dish, so get planning!

Anyone that knows us is welcome. Please let us know if you can come so I can get a rough idea of numbers. Other halves and offspring welcome obviously.

Hope to see you there!

Elly and Matt

Climbing Talk / SPA Assessment
« on: November 27, 2011, 09:20:44 PM »
Hi Guys,

I want to do my SPA assessment next year, probably with these guys on 21 - 22 April which is a couple of weekends after Splosh.

Is there anyone who has done their training who would like to come and do the assessment with me. I will probably book it before Christmas.


Climbing Trips / Climbing Day Trip - (23rd Oct)
« on: October 11, 2011, 08:28:59 AM »
I have a free weekend coming up and fancy going climbing outdoors somewhere. Who else wants to come? We can decide on location closer to the time when we know what part of the UK is dry.

Climbing Trips / Climbing (20th -21st August)
« on: August 10, 2011, 07:46:15 PM »
Unfortunately for Elly she has to work next weekend (20th -21st August). Fortunately for me that means that I am free to go climbing. I have pulled out my West Country Climbs guide book for inspiration. How about going to North Devon, Baggy Point or some of the crags around Bude?

Anyone up for it?

Climbing Trips / Day Trip - Sat 2nd July

Climbing Talk / SPA

Anyone looking to do their SPA anytime soon? I want to go and do the training soon.

Does anyone know any good instructors to do it with?

Climbing Trips / Climbing 19th - 20th Feb
« on: February 14, 2011, 06:37:46 PM »
I am not going on the winter trip next weekend because I can't justify the cost with buying a house and everything. I am now left with a whole weekend with nothing to do, I can justify a weekend trip or day trip climbing somewhere depending on weather. I was thinking of trad at either swanage or wye valley.

Anyone want to join me? Alternatively I am open to other cheap things I can do with my weekend (bike ride or something)

Climbing Talk / Lundy
« on: August 30, 2010, 08:02:32 PM »
I just bought myself a shiny new west country climbs guidebook. I has lots of pretty pictures of places that I have not been yet. On that jumped out is Lundy. It looks like a real mini adventure getting there and climbing there as it is an island with no cars. I am thinking of planning a trip there next year. Anyone interested?

Climbing Trips / Climbing - Peak 5th - 6th June
« on: June 01, 2010, 09:34:37 PM »
I am going up to the Peak this weekend with Elly and some friends from work. Anyone else want to come?

I know this clashes with Si's bouldering thing but I would much rather be outside for 2 days if the weather is good.

Climbing Talk / Half Ropes
« on: March 19, 2010, 04:09:58 PM »
Luck me just got promoted so I thought I would buy a pair of half ropes to celebrate and to use at splosh.

Can anyone recommend me a set of halfs for trad stuff? I am also pondering the question 50m or 60m? I already have 50m single and I have never come up short on any routes I have climbed so far.
