Hello, I have climbed some months indoors and am really enjoying it.
Would love to start climbing outdoors.

Where is a good place to start (not too hard routes so I can get familiar with the gear used outdoors) ? Note I am 16 so I am looking for these organizations where you go for example a week somewhere with instructors and other people of around same age (sorry, don't know how this is called in English).
I live in Belgium but if it's in other countries I don't mind.

Thanks for help

i dont know of anything in belgium but if you came to the US most climbing gyms have outdoor classes which will teach you everything you need to know. just go on the internet and do a search for climbing schools or something of that nature and read up on some stuff.
good luck and have fun climbing

Hi, I added "Belgium" to your the title of your post so the people from Belgium here in this forum will actually recognize ;)
Hope you don't mind.

Good luck,
Heiko

Go to www.belclimb.net or one of the organisations in Belgium.
CAB-BAC or USB or some other.

Well, I believe most of the gyms have lessons that they offer. I'm not sure how many you will find now that fall is here, but you can try

http://www.stone-age.be - may be smart to call them and find out, as I'm not sure how up-to-date that site is. I know for sure that they have INDOOR classes on how to clean routes outdoors and other necessary skills.

Also the BAC site: http://www.clubalpin.be may have something useful.

Ciao,
Taz
