Outdoor climbing

Geckos run trips to outdoor climbing venues, such as the Southern Sandstone near Royal Tunbridge Wells in Kent and the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire. We teach in groups of four, either groups of children or mixed age groups, such as families.

Our next top-roping trip will be on Monday 1 and Tuesday 2 August 2022 to the Peak District.

We will also be running a lead-climbing course in the Peak District on 29-31 July for older, more-experienced kids. Please contact us for more details.
