Come learn to climb with a Pure Outdoor Beginner Climbing Course. An ideal starting point for those with little or no prior experience of rock climbing, this starts with the 'Outdoor Taster Session' on day 1 then continues to develop more skills on the second day. On the highly accessible gritstone crags of the Peak District this course aims to get you climbing confidently while teaching the essential skills of rope work and belaying. We hope to take in some of the Peak District's many and varied routes to build fundamental climbing skills for the future.
During this course you will learn about the fundamentals of rock climbing including how to use the essential equipment, footwear, basic climbing moves, abseiling, belaying, about rock types and how to use guidebooks. It is designed for people with little or no experience in rock climbing. If you are looking for a course where you can focus on becoming a competent 'second' or looking at some more rope techniques, have a look at our lower ratio 2 day Intermediate Navigation Course.
9am: Training Centre is open for course participants to come in, grab a drink and get prepared for a 9:30 am start.
We spend a good 30 minutes ensuring everybody is suitably kitted out with all of the technical equipment they need for the day. We have a good range of rock shoes available in stock and these can be hired for £3 per person per day.
10am: Go Climbing!
Depending on weather, group experience and size of group we select a local crag and jump in the Pure Outdoor minibus and go for it! This could be a 10 minute drive, it could be half an hour. Sometime we need to walk for 15-20 minutes to get to the climbing. Bring some decent trainers or walking boots.
Bring a packed lunch as we have lunch out at the crag
3.30pm: Last few routes!
Time to start packing up and heading back to the bus
4-4.30pm: Depending on where we went climbing, we usually head back to the Training Centre for a de-brief, climbing equipment amnesty and another cup of tea before finishing up the course and heading home.
Depending on experience of the group and weather conditions the structure of the day is similar to that of day 1. We may venture to an indoor climbing wall for some of the day or spend some time on some theory at the training centre. You can discuss what you want to get from the course with your instructor on the first day and this day can be tailored around the needs of the group.
