Bethan - I'm not sure, but I suspect not yet, so it's Tim Crothers you want. If you email gear at oumc.co.uk it ought to get to the right person either way!

Niall - Pony Road Auto Specialists - I've been using them for years. I'm not sure if they'll be able to do it in-house if it's a big welding job but they'll be able to sub it out.

What's the general consensus on where's good for car maintenance these days? My go-to option of "the VW place at the end of the road" have moved to somewhere inconvenient, and my Polo needs some welding work done: suggestions?

The club gear bag has several in that range, IIRC. Try the gear reps?

Massive request! Despite being mega broken and not having climbed for months, or even been in a tent for nearly a year ( Crying !!! ), I'm sad enough about this that I think I'm about to go to Swanage for Sat/Sun with a couple of friends, one of whom is a non-climber.

Does anyone happen to have any size 4 or 5 shoes they'd be happy to lend me (for her) for the weekend?

FI was going to suggest a BBQ tomorrow for anyone that hasn't escaped the dinner, but it's raining!

Anyone fancy food at mine. Something that goes well with beer is my thinking.

So a friend whom I thought was coming over in early October is no longer able to make it. Crying However, this means my schedule has opened up somewhat and I am now
1) Definitely keen/able to do the Verdon in early September, and
2) Very keen to head to Morocco in early October provided someone is keen to partner up for some HVS/E1/E2s...

2. There is only one thing they’ll splurge on: new gear.
They'll buy you the shiny cams for your birthday AND help you justify buying the new climbing shoes that you don't -need-, but might help you crack that tricky problem......

There's been far too much talk of climbing on here recently.

But to continue the theme, would anyone be interested in Lundy this July?

Hi Stefan,

We'll be taking the club shoes and harnesses to the wall tomorrow, from about 7:30 onwards I think, so you'll be able to borrow stuff this week. The shoes are old ones donated by club members, so might be a bit battered and holey! Alternatively you can hire shoes from Brookes.

Hi guys!
I would like to join you tomorrow at the Brooks climbing wall. Unfortunately all my equipment is back home in Austria. I am probably going to get it next weekend. Dose it make sense to come by tomorrow or should I wait until I have my stuff here?
Cheers Stefan

"... Verdon gorge in the first week of September ... who scared me little was below 6c, there are some routes below this.

Anyone else interested." -- -- Jody Palmer


You can climb harder than 6c. I've now got the Rockfax Guidebook for the Verdon - it's been getting me psyched Happy I was thinking of going for 2 weeks at the end of September but perhaps the start of September would be better.

Hey,

I'm considering going to the Verdon gorge in the first week of September after a family holiday in Spain (near no bloody rocks!). Considering in the, 'I've already booked three weeks off work', kind of way.

After a brief conversation with Luke who scared me little was below 6c, there are some routes below this.

Anyone else interested.

It's in the rugby fives room and you can get the key from the front desk in exchange for your OUMC card. If you walk past the Iffley wall it's in one of the back buildings (I think the one opposite the ergs). There was indeed a mound of crap underneath. May also be worth taking something to smooth the edges as I remember it looking a bit splintery
