Join us for half a day of real rock climbing in the Peak District. Whether you've never climbed before, only tried climbing indoors or just want to get out on some classic Peak District crags then this course is for you. No experience is needed and each participant will be instructed in the safe fitting of helmets, harnesses and how to belay one another by our team of highly experienced climbing instructors.

No experience required. You'll be given the chance to push your ability and climb as hard as you desire. You'll receive coaching and instruction from a qualified climbing instructor and will be shown how to safely fit your own harness and helmet as well as learn to belay one another.
September can be chilly, so dress accordingly and remember you will spend some time standing around.

Climbing is easier in stretch or loose fitting clothing
Hat and gloves
Some snack bars or sandwiches to keep you fuelled
This course will take place offsite at a crag in the Peak District so please arrive at the SofA meeting poing at least 10 minutes before the starting time. This will give you a chance to meet your instructor and set off in good time. If you are late your group will leave without you.
