Rock Climbing

If you’ve always wanted to give rock climbing a go, or are looking for an exciting way to fill your weekend, then this taster session is a great way to pick up the basics. Accompanied by an experienced, qualified instructor, you will head to a peak district crag where we will provide you with all the equipment you need and full safety instruction. Then it’s up to you to climb as high as you like, and take your turn learning to belay (that is, keeping your partner safe whilst they climb). By the end of the session, you will know why we love to climb, have learnt a little, and (hopefully) whet your appetite to climb more.

If you’re looking for a birthday treat for a loved one, to introduce your kids to the thrill of “real” climbing, or just want someone to keep an eye on safety whilst you practice your climbing technique, this session is the perfect choice!


Sessions that run to the south of Manchester take place at a peak district crag, no more than 45 mins drive from the centre of the city. Book several sessions, and we’ll visit several different venues! A typical venue is Windgather Rocks.

Sessions that run north of Manchester typically take place at the Wiltons, about 30 mins drive north of the city.


The south Manchester climbing and abseiling venues are typically in remote countryside, so there are no facilities there. Parking is usually free, but you’ll need to bring everything with you that you’ll need during the day.

At the Wiltons there are no public facilities, but a good pub for a post climb pint!
