Course Overview: 

Our Learn to Lead climbing courses are aimed at people that have done some climbing before and want to improve and develop their skills further.  This could include building your confidence at leading and self reliance with rigging and associated ropework skills.  This course will give you a safer way to approach lead climbing and check that the fundamental skills are being done correctly first before covering further skills.

Our staff will deliver this at a pace that suits your individual needs at the time. We will aim to get plenty of climbing and lead climbing in, practice gear placements, setting up lead belays and belaying using different devices.

Please note that we need 2 people on this climbing course to make it run. The price of £170 is per person

Course Benefits:

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.

Equipment Required: 

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.

If you can't make one of the dates below please get in contact for a bespoke course on a date to suit you.
