    Hello I’m in Shetland for 8 weeks and looking to get some climbing done.

    I’ve got half a rack and a 70m rope with me. I’ve got cams and the remainder of the rack in Aberdeen (Does anyone know a good way of getting them up here?)

    Coming back to climbing after a couple of years out so trying to get the confidence back. Leading severe at the minute but would second a couple of grades harder. Have a vehicle so can travel, also have tent etc so would be keen for a weekend trip or two. Weekends and evenings would be best for me but could possibly fit other times in.

    Hoping to see as much of the area as I can over the next couple of weeks so if anyone can recommend and good spots to climb or explore I’d be very appreciative.

    Kind Regards,

    Hi Stephen
    Welcome to Shetland! Our outdoor climbing tends to be organised at fairly short notice. But we do occasionally meet up at Mareel in Lerwick for a chat. I’ll drop you a line when we’re next meeting up.
    If you keep an eye on the forum some club members may post their plans to go glimbing at x,y,z and see if anyone else is available.
    Where will you be based – and do you have any preference for rock type? We have a very wide variety of rock types!
    Simplest way to get stuff up is parcelforce 48, but that said club members are fairly well supplied for gear, so just shoes, harness and helmet are fine.
