Rock Climbing Sport Climbing Course

Sport Climbing Course

Peak District sport climbing has seen a big boom in the last decode or so. Many sport climbing venues have been rebolted by the BMC so making it safer at certain crags. Others are getting more climbers on them so teh routes are cleaner. again this makes it safer for climbers visiting Derbyshire.

Our sport climbing courses are run by climbing instructors that live and work in the area.  This means that they can choose the venue which is most suitable to your needs. This course is ideal for climbing partners or friends who want to make the transition into outdoor sport climbing. You can share the cost and both gain the experience and knowledge from our very well qualified climbing instructors. The price may vary depending on the group size so feel free to give us a call with any questions.

If you prefer then we offer Trad climbing courses which work well for the same transitions from indoors to outdoors. initially these are run as top rope courses before moving onto a rigging course or learning to lead climb.

All of our private climbing courses are bespoke so you can contact us to let us know what you want from the day. We will then tailor everything to you. Our Peak District sport climbing courses usually meet in Calver as we are then closer to more suitable venues.
