Peak District Climbing Courses

With breathtaking moor land and unspoilt landscapes the Peak District is unsurprisingly the most visited National Park in the World after Japan's Mount Fuji. The Peaks is famous for gritstone climbing which is arguably the finest type of rock for climbing in the world. The rock is rarely more than 15m high but that 15m offers some of the best climbing you will ever experience. The Peak District climbing has everything from slabs and overhangs to cracks and steep face climbing. The bouldering here is, in my opinion, the best in the U.K.

The Peak District is a perfect place for a rock climbing course.
