    Having seen pictures on here, I thought I would dip my toe into the water and see what it's all about.
    I am late 40, live in East Berkshire / Surrey borders, not too keen on heights, and carrying a few more pounds than is ideal, apart from that, I really want to have a go at this, it seems like fun, although I obviously realise it must be taken seriously.
    I need to buy some kit, decent boots, and a torch I suspect are important, is there a "kit list" anywhere that I can take a look at?
    Any other tips?

    Cheers

    There's not really a list. Just take what you need. Boots and a torch usually !

    Don't spend much cash until you have to.

    Welcome, yeah you pretty much nailed it with a torch & decent boots, a big bottle of water is always good as well oh and a some sort of camera if you want to take any snaps. Oh and some Mars bars :D

    As for the tips...
    Don't over use HDR, Don't publicly post or ask for access and try your best not to get caught in places or injure yourself.
    Other than that welcome to 28 :D
