Dude, never worry.

It is the same outdoors. Obviously you have to have confidence in placing you gear and have knowledge to set you anchors.

Remember what you were like when we first started indoor ??? no look at what you can do.

Its all about confidence in you and your partner. (PS For the first couple of climbs we can set up a top rope or I will lead).

I have every confidence in you by the way  :-X

have you practised your falls indoors? get used to them now so you know what to expect  ;)

i've just purchased the guide as well, i have a feeling this is going to be a lovely dry summer with lots of outdoor climbing (just like i though last year  :( )

Is this a new guidebook, or is it the 1998 one with spellack on the front cover?

Mine guide arrived today, was expecting it to be a bit rough as i picked it up for only £15 but its in pristine condition :) flicking through it its great to put names to certain rock features, i'll think i'll be bringing it on future walks to see if i can pick out the climbs.
