Rock Climbing Courses

Have you asked yourself this question? 'Would you rather have a healthy life-style more than just a health routine?'

Rock Climbing will keep you fit, strong and it has the potential to open up a whole world of new friends and experiences. Our lives changed because of outdoor climbing and because of that we’d like to show you how explore this vertical world for yourself. With the lowest course ratios in the Peak District and staff who are dedicated rock climbers, we aim to break the status quo of outdoor instruction and teach you what it is to be a climber and not just the skills involved.

The Peak Climbing School is located within the Staffordshire Moorlands part of the Peak District National Park. Some of the best and most famous Gritstone climbing venues such as The Roaches, Hen Cloud and Ramshaw Rocks are within walking distance of our outdoor climbing centre. Please check out all our outdoor climbing courses below and if you need any further information please don't hesitate to contact us!
