Title: Climbing buddies wanted!!
Post by: lou on April 11, 2012
Hey Guys!

I am after some climbing buddies to join me in either the ozone/queens climbing walls.  Just recently completely the beginners/improvers climbing courses at the ozone but now need to find some people that are interested in it that I can go along with.  Hopefully go regular once/twice a week.

Also had my first outdoor rock climbing trip last friday in the Mournes which was amazing!!  Climbed 'Class Distinction' and 'White Walls'.  So am keen to get more trips out too.

If any of ye are up for it give me a shout here, PM me or my email addy is lou_anderson84@hotmail.com  I can give me mobile number out via private message if handier.

Look forward to hopefully hearing from some new climbing buddies  ;D

Lou

Something I really want to start getting into. I think Tuesday proved mountain biking aint for me.

What happened to you?

Lou are you ever over at the ozone at lunch times? There are a few of us that climb during our lunch break from time to time.

Lou, myself and a mate have just started climbing weekly in the PEC and you're more than welcome to come along. You need a PEC membership though. We're both beginners.

If you didn't see the thread on here, lots of us are starting outdoor climbing with Rock and Ride Outdoors who are starting Tuesday and Wednesday evening sessions in the Mournes.

LOL at both videos, the first thing said is did you get that. It turns out if partially dislocated me shoulder. Should be 2 weeks before its back and could need physio to bring back range of movement.

If your going to come of best get it on Camera  ;)

I broke a collar bone on a similar jump. Slowed me a bit but back faster and better. Learn from the wrecks and keep er lit. I am due a big one though it's been a while. ;D Bikes set up ready for tomorrow looking forward to a blast out hopefully in the sun.

i broke my collar bone jumping off a roof, but got it on video too  ;D

if you're going to try something stupid/dangerous, then at least video it, the difference between stupid and dangerous is whether you succeed or fail  8)
