Our climbing courses start near the gritstone crags usually meeting in Hathersage in the Peak District. We will move quickly to the most suitable crag depending on the weather.
After this course people have felt more confident in their own ability to look after themselves and their climbing partner.
Course Prerequisites: Have some previous experience of indoor and outdoor climbing, or have attended our Intermediate Climbing Course.
Suitable clothing to keep you warm and dry for the expected weather (check a forecast for this area or call us) carry a waterproof or windproof jacket. You will need sturdy footwear for the walk in and out of the crag, a packed lunch and drink. Your own climbing harness and shoes at this stage is normal although we can hire shoes for just £3.00 a day.
