    What to Expect
    This course is suitable for those of you who have never climbed indoors or outdoors before. If you have climbed indoors it is a good opportunity to refresh skills and get a taster for rock climbing on real rock.

    During the course you will look at:
    • Equipment including harness, helmet, rock shoes, ropes and belay devices
    • Climbing grades
    • Climbing movement skills on real rock
    • Tying into the rope
    • Belaying and lowering/abseiling
    • Climbing routes
    • Climbing guidebooks
    • 'Head Games'These climbing courses are based at a dedicated training centre in the Peak District with exclusive use of our indoor rope skills training wall. With complimentary tea & coffee, parking and WiFi.

    No pre-requisites.

    In terms of the required equipment, customers bring their own rock shoes. They can however be hired as well. Customers are advised to bring suitable clothing that will keep you warm and dry in most weathers and some sturdy footwear for walking to and from the climbing areas. You are also advised to bring a packed lunch.

    Itinerary:

    Meet at the Training Centre at 9am (start times may vary by up to 30 minutes during busy times but this will be confirmed the week before).

    Training Centre is open from 9am for course participants to come in and grab a drink. You will spend a good 30 minutes ensuring everybody is suitably kitted out with all of the technical equipment they need for the day. There is a good range of rock shoes available in stock and these can be hired for £3 per person per day.

    At 10am the climbing begins.

    Depending on weather, group experience and size of group you select a local crag and jump in the Pure Outdoor minibus and go for it! This could be a 10 minute drive, it could be half an hour. Sometime you need to walk for 15-20 minutes to get to the climbing. Bring some decent trainers or walking boots.

    3.30pm: Last few routes, after which you will start packing up and heading back to the van.

    4-4.30pm: Depending on where you go climbing, you usually head back to the Training Centre for a de-brief, climbing equipment amnesty and another cup of tea before finishing up the course and heading home.
