A lead climbing course in the Peak District  is the ideal way to get into leading traditional rock climbs safely. The Peak District is an ideal part of the country to do this, because of the nature of the rock outcrops and quarries. There are plenty of short, single-pitch climbs with easy access to the top and bottom.

The routes may be relatively short but they include some of the hardest climbs in the country. Very many of them are classed as “Three Star” routes. This is an indicator that the general consensus is that they are among the very best rock climbs in the country too. What better way to learn than on some of the best climbs available anywhere in the UK.
