where are the foreign oldies ?

While slogging up to Valcon cave a few of us managed to discuss the young foreign climbers looking to hook up.
There does not seem to be a rush of locals offering assistance - their grades are too intimidating ? !
The question was ... are there any foreign climbing oldies looking for partners to climb E1 - F1 grades -
Or like most do they stay at home + climb local ?
It is more convenient i guess - as the zimmer frame or wheelchair is easier to manage on home ground ! !
