Our Performance Rock Climbing course will help you to develop your skills so you can climb more confidently, with greater efficiency, and ultimately harder – on sport or trad routes. Throughout the course you’ll receive personalised coaching and instruction enabling you to tackle the climbs you’ve always wanted to be able to do. The first day, or morning, is usually spent indoors at Awesome Walls Sheffield with the focus being on introducing and developing your climbing skills before applying and refining them outside at the crag on the second day.
Location: Awesome Walls Sheffield & the Peak District National Park
The course will usually start at Awesome Walls Sheffield which has some fantastic climbing facilities which we will take advantage of. After having spent some time indoors looking at various skills we’ll then head out into the the Peak District which boasts some of the best rock climbing in the country. With amazing views and varied climbing, we’re able to provide endless options for improving your rock climbing skills, and giving you a great day out.
