Course Overview

Our 'Courses for Young People' Outdoor Rock Climbing Course is the perfect way for under 18's to experience climbing on real rock for those with little or no prior experience. Being based in the Peak District we have easy access to some of the best rock climbing in the UK which means our experienced instructors can always find the right location and level of challenge for you. This course is therefore just as suitable for complete beginners who have never climbed before as it is for those who have previously climbed indoors and are looking to refresh their skills or get a taste of climbing on real rock.

The first day follows the same format as our popular intro to outdoor climbing course. Initially you will learn everything you need to climb safely with the focus quickly moving onto increasing confidence and improving your climbing technique. Adding a second day gives even more opportunity for hands on experience of climbing and allows our instructors to introduce you to a greater range of climbing techniques, many of which are difficult or impossible to learn while climbing indoors. You will also have the opportunity to look at associated skills, you could for example try abseiling or begin to look at the wide range of equipment that is available to climbers.

Please note that we are not a residential training centre, so the participants must be dropped off an collected at the start and end of each day.

As a reference, Pure Outdoor Ltd is AALA certified (http://www.aals.org.uk/aals/provider_detail.php?ref_no=R2331), holds full public liability insurance, comprehensive risk assessments and all instructors are qualified with ongoing training and CPD.

Weatherproofed Climbing Courses

Our training centre 'The Adventure Hub' has an indoor climbing wall and bouldering wall facility along with a rope rigging skills and training area. Of course, we are excited to take you climbing outside on real rock, but for those multiple rainy days when we have exhausted our selection of sheltered crags, it's a great facility to come back to and exclusive to Pure Outdoor
