    Good afternoon all,

    I have just taken a new job based out of Sumburgh airport and live near by.
    I haven’t climbed for some time (maybe 4-5 years outside) but am keen to get back into i5 with anyone that is keen (and patient!)

    Best regards.

    Hi Pete, for indoor climbing there is Aith leisure centre, Wednesday and Thursday evenings 6:30 -8. Numbers are currently limited to 6 people per session. It’s a long drive from Sumburgh though! For outdoors we tend to organise at short notice through Whatsapp. This forum isn’t much used at the moment, and we tend to use Facebook http://www.facebook.com/climbshetland/ for upcoming events.
    There are a few easier crags south of Lerwick that we climb as a club. Have you got your own harness, belay device and shoes? Apart from that there’s enough personal gear in the club for folk new to climbing or getting back into it. Cheers, Kevin Learmonth
