Are you new to climbing? Or maybe you are an indoor climber keen to expand your horizons. Whatever your current level of experience this course will get you climbing safely and comfortably on real rock in the real outdoors. A great first step to a whole world of adventure.
Our Beginner Outdoor Rock Climbing Course is the perfect way to experience climbing on real rock for those with little or no prior experience. Being based in the Peak District we have easy access to some of the best rock climbing in the UK which means our experienced instructors can always find the right location and level of challenge for you. This course is therefore just as suitable for complete beginners who have never climbed before as it is for those who have previously climbed indoors and are looking to refresh their skills or get a taste of climbing on real rock.

Day 19:30 Arrive at The Adventure Hub
Your instructor will welcome you and discuss the aims of the course and you own aspirations over a great cup of fresh Italian coffee or tea. You will be sized up for helmets, rock shoes and harnesses. All you need do is check you have food, a drink and clothing that is suitable for the conditions.
9:45 Travel to climb location
The exact location will depend on the weather and the aims and abilities of the group. With the famous crags of Stanage, Burbage and Froggatt (amongst many others) all within easy reach this is typically a 15 minute drive from The Adventure Hub.
10:00 Practical climbing session
Your instructor will demonstrate and explain the basics of the safety system and give you a chance to practise tying in and belaying each other. You will then be shown and coached on different key climbing techniques as you scale a number of routes throughout the day all whilst gaining confidence and experience with the rope systems. Usually we cover a number of buttresses along the crag over the course of the day.

Once we are off the hill we will return to The Adventure Hub. With fresh coffee in hand, we summarise the key learning points from the days adventure, discuss your progress so far and set some personalised development targets for your blossoming climbing career.
Day 29:30 Arrive at The Adventure Hub and then climb
After coffee and a brief chat outlining the day we head out with the aim to give you the opportunity to experience a completely different climbing venue, refine and improve what was covered on the first day and broaden your experience of climbing generally. Many people decide to try some abseiling at this point but that is just one of many options that are open to you.
