"Amy always wanted to get great photos of her friends climbing. Getting the right shot was now no longer a problem"
Having the knowledge to get up and down a climbing rope safely is a great skill to pop into your climbing tool box. On this workshop we explore a variety of abseiling situations, from lowering others & single rope abseiling to multi pitch retrievable abs & problem solving. We also look at ways to ascend ropes quickly and efficiently so you can deal with emergency situations or just get in a great spot to take a photo.
Who's this for?
Climbers looking to further their knowledge within the sport and learn new skills to keep them safe at the crag.
What you will learn:
Single and Twin rope abseiling
Ascending single ropes
Your own harness and rack is desirable however we can provide you with any kit you need. 2 prussiks, a Gri Gri and if you have one a ascender is also desirable.
Our start time and meeting point is 9:30am at our centre The Peak Climbing School.
Here we will brief you on the days activity whilst having a free brew and biscuit. From here we will set off into the crag for an exciting days learning. We sometimes we use areas further away from our centre so you can get the most out of your course, therefore some transport is advantageous. However if you are struggling for transport please let us know so we can arrange some for you. The day will end around 4:30pm.
Open course dates:
We have a number of courses running all year which can be booked online below.
If these dates don't suit your calendar please get in touch as we are always more than happy to put more course dates on!
We need a min of 2 people to run an open course, therefore it's advisable you book for 2 to ensure it goes ahead. However this is not a requirement!
If you do book individually onto an open course and we don't get enough participants to run the session we will try our best to re-book you onto another course or give you a full refund.
If you'd rather book this course privately and have us all to yourself thats no problem. Our private guiding day rates will just apply. All private courses can be adjusted to completely suit your needs.
We accept most major credit and debit cards and with our secure booking system booking your course couldn't be easier. However if you'd prefer to book and pay over the phone please get in touch.

As we get back to our feet...
The COVID-19 Situation has been really hard for all of us. However, soon we will be ready and able to offer some of what we do again. To start with this will be limited to one day 1:1 private guided sessions only.
As restrictions get lifted we hope to open up slowly, allow more to happen and get back to running the best courses the UK has to offer with amazing people like you!
If you are itching to go climbing, please feel free to contact us directly to inquire about a private session or simple, just for a chat about how we plan to open up or keep you safe
