Rock Climbing: Peak District & throughout the UK
The Peak District boasts some of the finest and most suitable outcrops in the British Isles for introductory and progressive rock climbing sessions.
Many of the crags we use are surronded by heather moorland and are easily accessible from nearby roads.
We are fortunate to have numerous indoor climbing walls located nearby for use during the colder months or for when the weather may become too inclement to climb outdoors.
The Acclimbatize equipment store is located less than 5 minutes walk from the nearest rock climbing and abseiling area.
The inclusion of rock climbing within a developmental programme creates an exciting situation in which individuals may challenge (stretch) themselves personally, overcome apprehensions and improve levels of self-confidence through their achievements.
Socially, participants are compelled to work closely with peers, taking responsibility for the safety of, and willingly trusting others. Individuals usually encourage and applaud others to achieve, regardless of how this may compare to their own performance.
Key Learning: Trust, Communication, Responsibility, Personal Challenge and Achievement, Team Work, Safety Instructions and Skill Aquistion.
Group Leadership: Activity Instruction
