Itinerary:

Day 1

 

9.30am: Meet at Training Centre

There is an opportunity to grab a quick drink while we kit everyone out with a harness, helmet and any other equipment they will need for the day. This is also when you can hire rock shoes if you require them for £3 per person per day.  

 

10am: Go Climbing

Depending on weather conditions and group experience we select a local crag, load up the Pure Outdoor minibus and go for it! Our position in the peak district means that we will spend a maximum of 30 minutes driving to reach our destination, although 15 minutes is more typical. A few of the venues we use are a 15-20 minute walk from the parking area so please bring some decent trainers or walking boots.

 

On arrival at the rock face there is a short session where you will learn how to correctly put on a harness and helmet, attach yourself to a rope and belay another climber. The training is practical, hands on and focusses on not only your own personal safety but also the safety of others in the group.

 

Start climbing for real! We typically have time for two or three climbs before lunch.

 

1pm (ish): Lunch

Lunch will be out at the crag so make sure you bring a packed lunch. How long (or even if!) you stop for lunch will be up to the group but it gives a chance to discuss what has already been achieved and what each individual’s focus for the afternoon should be.

 

Climb as much as possible!

 

3.30pm: Last few routes

Time to start finishing the last few climbs of the day, packing up the equipment and heading back to the van.

 

4 - 4.30pm: Debrief   

Depending on where we went climbing, we usually head back to the Training Centre for a cup of tea and the opportunity to talk over what has been achieved and what the aims for tomorrow should be.

 

 

Day 2

 

9.30am: Meet at Training Centre

Decide on the venue for today’s climbing; we will generally aim to use a different venue each day to provide an experience of how climbing styles can vary depending on rock type and how it has weathered.

 

10am: Go Climbing

Travel to the chosen venue and get as much climbing done as possible! Now that all the skills that are required for safety are fully embedded we can really start to concentrate on how to improve climbing technique and trying a range of climbing styles.

 

1pm (ish): Lunch

Again as long or as short as you like but don’t forget a packed lunch!

 

Continue climbing throughout the afternoon with the opportunity to try abseiling if you are interested.

 

3.30pm: Last few routes

Time to start finishing the last few climbs of the day, packing up the equipment and heading back to the van.

 

4 - 4.30pm: Debrief   

Head back to the Training Centre for a final chat about what has been achieved over the two days and how to progress from here. If you have a long journey home and would rather head straight off then we are always available by email and will be happy to answer your questions or give you suggestions about further adventures.
