Junior Climbing Residential 2016 – Peak District

Monday 25th July – Thursday 28th July

This year Southampton Climbing Wall’s residential trip is to Stanage in the Peak District, a mecca of climbing and bouldering. Every junior climber will find a challenge at the right level with a gritstone outcrop over a mile long and with over 2000 climbing routes.

We’ll be staying in a bunk house in the heart of the action, in the evenings there will be some fun activities including a night-line, slacklining and a climbing quiz, then climbing on some of the best rock that Britain has to offer during the daytime.

Who's it for?

There is climbing across all the grades and anyone between 11 -18 will be welcomed, with lots of experience, or just a little. This is ideally suited to all the junior climbers in the SCW Junior Climbing Club from 11 years old. There will be 3 very experienced instructors and we will be able to work with all climbers at all levels. If you are unsure if this is for you / your child then please just give us a call and we can chat about the suitability.
