climbing buddy

Postby Waelan » Tue, 03 Apr 2012 2:57 pm

Hi, I'm looking for climbing buddies as my regular buddy will be away for a while. Usually goes to CA or Onsight around 7pm on the weekdays, I'm up for other places during weekend. Anyone interested, please let me know (n_badz@yahoo.com). Thanks! :)

I have just started climbing again after a 7 months break. Am planning to go to Onsight about twice a week from now on, to get back to form.

I mostly do bouldering, i find it more fun. But have done lead also.

What grades do you climb?

Few details about me, am F around 47kgs and has been climbing on and off for almost a year. Usually I do top rope (6a-6b), recently start bouldering but just as a beginner level, I'm not sure for the grade but I did the orange tape routes.
No experience for lead climb yet.

What grading system is that?
I am afraid I don't know what they use here in Singapore for top rope.
6a-6b, that looks like either British technical or French.

I am about 74Kgs so a little bit heavier i am afraid. and Male.

I used to climb around 6a (British tech) or 6c+ (French)
or bouldering: V3/4 or 6a+ (font)

But it appears i have dropped 2-3 grades since i stopped.

It will be an uphill battle i think.

Am not really sure bout the grading system, but I think here in Singapore they use the French one, as the grade also come with + sign. How long have you been climbing?

I climbs also with the guys, so I'm used belaying someone who's "a little bit heavier" than me ;). Worse come worst, I can use the sandbag to keep me stay in the ground.

I think once you start climbing regular like twice a week, you'll be back soon to your previous grade.

Let me know if you interested to climb next week, I'll be away for this weekend.

I usually goes either Wednesday/Thursday around 7pm and another one in Sunday noon or afternoon.

CA (Climb Asia) is in Tessensohn Road, near to Farrer Park MRT
Onsight is in Guilemard Road.
Which one is more suitable for you to go?
