A weekend of rock climbing in the famous and beautiful Peaks. Enjoy the experience of climbing outdoors with the exhilaration of topping out onto Stanage Moor with the stunning views across the Peak District. The gritstone crags of the Peak District are world famous as a climbing venue. The texture of the rock is very tactile and easy to grip onto, and this was one of the key places where traditional rock climbing emerged in this country. The highly qualified and experienced instructors will deliver the course in a relaxed fashion giving you the skills to climb the gritstone edges safely and confidently. The skills taught during this course are:
Knot tying
Use of correct equipment
Injury prevention
Movement Skills
Climbing techniques
We stay at our lovely campsite with only a short warm up walk of around 10 minutes to get you to the gritstone edges of Stanage Edge. A picnic lunch will be taken near the rock face on Saturday with an evening barbecue at the campsite on Saturday night. On Sunday, after our morning session we will have Sunday lunch in a great local pub. Some indoor climbing experience is required, but no outdoor climbing experience is necessary. Beginners welcome.

This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:

  • Corporates
  • Hen / Stag parties
  • School groups
  • Families
