Come learn to climb with a Pure Outdoor Beginner Rock Climbing Course. An ideal starting point for those with little or no prior experience of rock climbing, this starts with the 'Outdoor Taster Session' on day 1 then continues to develop more skills on the second day. 


On the highly accessible gritstone crags of the Peak District this course aims to get you climbing confidently while teaching the essential skills of rope work and belaying. We hope to take in some of the Peak District's many and varied routes to build fundamental climbing skills for the future. With some of the most famous venues in the country there is a good chance you could find yourself at Stanage Edge, Froggatt Edge and Burbage Edge amongst many others.


During this course you will learn about the fundamentals of rock climbing including how to use the essential equipment, footwear, basic climbing moves, abseiling, belaying, about rock types and how to use guidebooks. It is designed for people with little or no experience in rock climbing. If you are looking for a course where you can focus on becoming a competent 'second' or looking at some more rope techniques, have a look at our lower ratio 2 day Intermediate Climbing Course.
