Peak District Climbing Courses Gritstone Adventure Activites. Our climbing courses allow a great way for beginners, or improvers, to gain much needed experience in the outdoors, climbing the Gritstone crags of the Peak District, UK. All specialist equipment is included, and you may bring your own gear to use if that’s what you are comfortable with.
The courses listed below follow a progression from “Climb 1” through to “Climb 3” and these courses are considered beginner to intermediate levels. After those courses, you may progress to the “Learn to Lead Courses,” which will be instructed by Holders of the Mountaineering Instructor Award – these instructors are the best the industry has to offer. While each course has a structure, you can request any aspect of rock climbing to be covered during your course and we can include it. Ultimately, the content is up to you.
After booking, you will be met at a central location in the Hope Valley, the heart and home of great climbing in the Peak District National Park. We would then head to carefully chosen venues. The venue will sometimes be chosen with weather conditions in mind. All of the climbing venues in the area are great for beginners as well as for advanced climbers. In short, the local climbing venues are internationally famous and world class.
We have dates available for the courses listed below, though please contact us if you would like to arrange a private or group climbing session on another date.

Our instructors are selected for their positive attitude to life and their love of sharing their experience with others. Our instructors are personable, friendly and fun – and when the chips are down, they are the ones eating the chips! Our instructors are sensitive to people’s needs and understand that they may be working with people who are well out of their comfort zone.

Our instructors are the best in the business.
I booked a day of climbing with Gritstone for me and my boyfriend as a present. We have both climbed indoors before (though my boyfriend climbs at a much higher grade and has much more experience than me) but we have never used ropes outside before.
Al, our instructor, managed to select routes which suited us both well, without being too easy for my boyfriend, or to hard for me and provided excellent advice, skills practice and technique points throughout. He tailored the day completely to us, and what we wanted to get out of the experience . Al is very down to earth, knowledgeable and patient and put us completely as ease – even over some of the slightly scary part of the climbs. He also knew where the best climbing routes were (and the ones which were most likely to be available – there were a few other climbers out today!). My boyfriend also got to experience lead/ trad climbing outside for the first time, learning how to select the right cams/nuts for the route, on a dummy lead climb.
By the end of the day today we had learnt how to set up a top rope safely so we can now confidently enjoy climbing together outside.
We’ve had a brilliant, beautiful, relaxed day of improving our climbing techniques under expert tuition, and we cannot wait to get back climbing in the Peaks ! We will definitely be doing more courses with Gritstone in the future , especially when we are both ready to really learn how to lead climb .
Thank you for a great day.
My brother and I booked a Multi-pitch trad climbing course with Gritstone adventures. The course ran over two days teaching us a lot of skills from placing protection, building belays and abseils. The instruction was really good and even when the weather was really bad we managed to learn a lot. We managed to organise the course with short notice and Al was able to accommodate us, with good communication.
I highly recommend booking with Gritstone Adventures!
