Welcome to

The Peak Climbing School

The Peak District's Rock Climbing, Hill Walking and Mountaineering School

"It's a life-style thing"

For us, climbing is more than a sport, its a way of life. It keeps you fit, strong and will take you to inspiring & beautiful places. At The Peak Climbing School we will teach you more than just skills, we will teach you the climbing lifestyle. Whether you want to try it for the first time with no expectations, or one day dream of summiting Everest. We can start you on your journey and take you as near, or as far as you wish to go.

We have a number of rock climbing skills courses running all year as well as private sessions if you'd like to learn 1:1.

What people say

'Just finished a cracking two days with Stuart. Just awesome. His technical skills are spot on, more importantly though he is a brilliant teacher and his enthisiasm for the sport is infectious. I’m already working out the dates for my next session' - Steve
