Indoor climbing courses

We offer a range of indoor climbing courses near Leeds, catering for everything from total novices to aspiring leaders. These courses are usually held at the Big Depot, Leeds. We also run outdoor rock climbing courses in Yorkshire, the Peak District, the Lake District and Snowdonia.

Our climbing courses start with an introductory, or ‘taster’ session, at which you can work out whether or not climbing is for you. If it is, then you can begin to learn the essential basics on one of our beginners’ climbing courses. Then we offer a range of progressive courses for improvers concentrating on whatever aspects of your climbing will be most helpful. For those that already climb competently on a top-rope, then the icing on the cake is one of our Learn to Lead courses, which will teach you all you need to know to lead climb, and lead belay, safely.
