Hello,
I would like to start some climbing. Either indoor bouldering, but mainly real rope climb. Is here someone who could teach me some basics? Or do you have some advise for a course? Thanks

Maybe you should contact local climbing club?

Bouldering you can start on your own or with a friend, but if you go to an indoor climbing wall you will be asked to demonstrate that you can safely tie in and belay another climber, so maybe an introductory course will be the best.
If you go to a wall, they'll surely have courses available.

I think you should try out the indoor bouldering first. It does not require formal training. Training is required for belayers though. You should contact your local club for that.

Thanks guys,
I've done some bouldering already, but only couple of times. I am looking mainly for rope climbing or more particulary for belaying and self-securing not only on the rock. I will check the local courses.
