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.
