Climbing - Junior Peak District Trip

- 3 great days climbing in the iconic peak district
- High quality instruction tailored to the level of the climber
- Open to all climbers aged 10-18 years who have completed their NICAS Level 2 Award or are at an equivalent standard (contact the centre if you are unsure)

We will again be running our very successful three day camping trip to the Peak District this summer. We will drive up Tuesday afternoon and set up camp. We then have 3 days climbing at a variety of venues in the Peak District or walls in Manchester or Sheffield if it rains. We return on the Friday evening, after the days climbing. Evening activities include a BBQ and a trip to a pizza restaurant.

The climbing available will be aimed at all levels of climber, we are likely to include:

Top Rope Climbing - for participants on their first experience of real rock.

Seconding - following an instructor up a climb they have just led removing their protection as they climb. All trip members should have a chance to do this if they wish at some stage.

Leading climbs on placed protection - those of you who are already leading on the bolted climbs indoors will get the chance to learn how to lead climbs placing your own protection on the 'traditional' climbs of the peak district.

Bouldering we will take the portable bouldering mats with us and you can attempt some of the many bouldering problems available on the boulders at the base of the crags.
