News - September 2013


We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you, our wonderful customers, for your continued patience and support over what have been an exceptionally difficult time.


From September 2nd we have revised COVID restrictions. 


Face Coverings:

We encourage and support customers to wear masks around the centre but it is not compulsory anymore to wear them.

The reception team will not obliged to wear a mask anymore but the screen will still be in place around the reception area.

Coaches will still have to wear masks on coached sessions as well as groups with participants aged 9 and above


Centre capacities:

With the removal of the very specific capacities from government guidance we will be cautiously increasing our centre capacities by 10%

The Climbing Works – 105 to 116 (sign out still required)

The Mini Works – 45 to 50 (slot bookings)

Unit E – 45 to 50


Social distancing:

The government guidance from 19th July means that there are no legal limits on indoor group size, but we still strongly encourage you to socially distance (2m where possible!) from people you don’t have frequent contact with anyway.

It is important that you continue to respect the space of anyone you have not mutually agreed that you are happy to be closer to or do not know.



We will continue to manage these risks and monitor them closely. In the event of significant new evidence and government announcements we will revise these new policies and not hesitate to put restrictions back in place.

13 Sep 2013 New Shop Stock!

The days are getting shorter and the weather cooler, and some of us begin to feel we might be solar-powered as we wake up to another darkened morning - but it's the time of year when the leaves start falling off the trees ready to be crunched underfoot, the Peak District changes colour in a spectacular fashion, wonderful cloud inversions can be seen in the valleys in the mornings and best of all, the grit comes back into nick! You will almost certainly find yourself reaching for an extra layer these days, maybe you've even released your beanie hat from its summer incarceration under the bed, swapping shorts for trousers perhaps, no sandals, more socks...

To help you, and your winter wardrobe, we've got our new seasonal clothing arriving in the shop over the next month or so, beginning with Blurr and Prana.

The Prana range is stellar as usual, with autumnal colours, soft and cosy fabrics and the detailing you've come to expect from their previous offerings. See below for a quick snapshot of just some of the items now in stock, and visit our Shop to find out more and view the rest.

1. Prana Retro Tee - now available in Indian Red (shown above), White and Green.

2. Prana Limited Edition Chalkbag - highly detailed chalkbags available in two unique designs and signed by Chris Sharma and Steph Davies: a percentage of the sale goes to charity.

3. Prana Women's Kari Jacket - warm and cosy women's jacket with striped detailing and hood.

4. Prana Driftwood Crew - available in Espresso (shown above) and Charcoal.

5. Prana Kravitz Cord - soft blue cords with a bit of stretch for easy movement.

6. Prana Asylum Flannel - the perfect longsleeved shirt to pull on when the weather turns a bit chilly or to use as a lightweight jacket on those inbetweeny September days.

7. Prana Women's Jett Jeans - skinny, stretch denim with a plaid pattern which makes them just that bit more special than your ordinary blue jeans.
