Day 1:

9am Meet at Training Centre (we sometimes vary start times by up to 30 mins during busy times but will confirm by email the week before)


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


9.30am: Go Climbing

Depending on weather, group experience and size of group we 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 we need to walk for 15-20 minutes to get to the climbing. Bring some decent trainers or walking boots.


Bring a packed lunch as we have lunch out at the crag


3.30pm: Last few routes

Time to start packing up and heading back to the van.


4-4.30pm: Depending on where we went climbing, we 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.
