In the Peak District we are blessed with some of the best rock climbing in the U.K. and with an unrivalled number of venues and routes to climb we are spoilt for choice. Whatever your skill level or physical ability we can find a venue to suit. We can cater for group taster sessions or small experienced groups, even individuals. If you want to try something new or would just like to hone some skills or spend time on the rock then get in touch and we can sort it out for you.
Private group bookings for families or work colleagues can be arranged. With a choice of venues, difficulty and the ability to combine with other activities like abseiling or weaseling, rock climbing sessions are always a big hit. We can often set up a number of climbs within a short distance allowing larger parties to stay together whilst having the opportunity to vary the challenge level within the group.
From beginner sessions to full days out with a climbing instructor developing your technique, we can cater for all levels. Rock climbing works well as part of an activity rotation for corporate or stag/hen events. Get in touch for more details.
Traditionally used to access the bottom of cliffs to get to the rock climbs, abseiling has now evolved into an activity in its own right. Push yourself and experience one of the best adrenalin rushes around! Some of the Peak District’s ancient abandoned quarry faces now find use as the perfect venues for abseiling. A great experience for groups or individuals of any age and ability. This can be done at a number of different venues.
Are you a charity looking to do a fundraising abseil event? We have experience running abseils on manmade structures like bridges and tower blocks. Speak to Pete for more details.

We can teach the skills rock climbers need to keep themselves safe and to achieve their goals.
Becoming more and more popular, bouldering brings the skills and techniques of rock climbing to ground level. Different to traditional climbing, when we boulder we stay low, traversing the cliffs and climbing short walls. We can protect ourselves with pads and by ‘spotting’ each other and we always aim to teach the skills necessary to safeguard yourself and each other, whether child or adult.
Bouldering activities give a large amount of ‘on the rock’ time and can be fitted to suit any timescale. A great activity for groups and families or just something different to try.
Indoor Walls and Climbing Towers
All the fun and skill of real rock but a bit more comfortable in the rain!
Rain or shine, artificial walls and towers are great places to get climbing. Often available after dark and on the wettest of days, but not just for the bad days, climbing wall sessions are great for training or as an introduction to the world of climbing.
