We normally meet at The Peak Climbing School at 9:30am. From here we will get kitted up and head up to the crag. You will be with us for around 6 hours and will cover as many climbing styles as possible in that time. After, we will head back to the centre for a brew and a de-brief if you'd like to come back to base with us? Otherwise you are welcome to head straight off from the crag. We aim to be finished around 3:30pm.
