Need partners for Melbourne indoor lead + outdoor

My primary climbing partner has packed up and moved interstate, so I'm now looking for others. I climb regularly at Hard Rock in the city on weeknights, but have a car and also head to to Altona and Nunawading occasionally.

I'm currently climbing up to about 18-19 on top-rope in the gyms (don't have a gym lead pass yet), and have trad led up to grade 14. Am very much keen to get both more trad experience and lead climbing passes for Cliffhanger and/or Hard rock. (I'm ready to take a gym lead assessment, but first need a belayer, and in the case of Hard Rock as few weeks of time on the waiting list.) Also happy to second or top-rope harder stuff outdoors.

I've got a rope, full trad rack and a car, and I'm a responsible belayer. What more could you want? A steak dinner after a climb? We'll talk about it. A rub and a tug after a climb? Sorry, I'll be too pumped. (Or will at least profess to being too pumped.)

Message me or post here.

Sorry bro. No rub and tug = no climb.

Yeah I'd have to agree with Dan...

The high standards some people have are, in a nutshell, disappointing;)

I'm up for a climb anytime...

Is that an intentional use of the word 'up'?

Good for you Miguel75. I had a wack day and then whilst contemplating my wack day I reversed into my housemates car. It then started raining at the precise moment I arrived at my training wall.

These guys do a regular Monday night at Hardrock CBD: http://www.meetup.com/rockclimbing-115/

They also do other nights at Nunawading, though less regularly. Good way to meet more keen people.

I think I'll need you to clarify your rub+tub expectations first. ;-)

Thanks. I'd seen them before but assumed they were more top-rope/beginner focussed. On closer inspection it seems my assumption may not have been entirely accurate...

The meetup group is a mix. There are a lot of beginners looking for other climbers to climb with instead of friends who were happy to try it once, but not into climbing as a regular thing.
There are also a lot of people who have moved to Melbourne from overseas with previous climbing experience, moved back to Melbourne after being away for a while (I fit into that group), or have had their regular climbing partners move away / get injured or otherwise stopped climbing.

No. The VCC noticed that Chris was doing a useful thing for the climbing community and sponsored his group, covering his costs to run it. Some of them join the club in future so the club might gain a few members, but I don't personally get anything from it.

BLASPHEMY! Mods, this post is discriminatory and should be removed...

No Werribee? Sheesh, next you'll be saying no Staughton Vale either...

;)

Edited for clarity once my rage and blood pressure subsided;)
