    Hiya, I would really like to find a partner to go climbing with. I’m an expierienced climber based in Wakefield but I did an entry level course with Huddersfield climbing centre. I have since been to the Rokt wall in Brighouse as well as Leeds climbing wall. I know my figure of 8 and I have my own b-lay device 🙂
