9:30 Arrive at The Adventure Hub
Your instructor will welcome you and discuss the aims of the course and your own aspirations over a great cup of fresh Italian coffee or tea. You will be sized up for helmets, rock shoes and harnesses. All you need do is check you have snacks, a drink and clothing that is suitable for the conditions.
9:45 Travel to climb location
The exact location will depend on the weather and the aims and abilities of the group. With the famous climbing venues of Stanage, Burbage and Froggatt to name just a few all within easy reach we will typically drive for approximately 15 minutes from the Adventure Hub. For those that are just joining the morning session on a full day course we usually ask you to drive to the venue in your own transport to enable you to get away easily at lunch time.
10.00 Practical climbing session
Your instructor will demonstrate and explain the basics of the safety system and give you a chance to practise tying in and belaying each other.

13.00 End of session
At the end of the session the instructor will recap your session and answer any questions. At this point you are free to explore the peak district. Feel free to pick the instructors brains for suitable walks in the area.
