Adventures for Kids, a climbing guidebook for children and their parents
A new year and a new start.

With the days getting longer and new ambitions stretching in front of us, it's time to start thinking about how to get everyone fit and healthy in 2024. Our Adventures For Kids guide is a great way to start getting children and young people out into the Peak District and motivated for some exercise disguised as walking and climbing. The book is available from bookshops across the Peak District as well as our online shop.

After a long period of hard work, we've finally got our new guidebook ready and you can get your hands on it by ordering through our shop, or buying from one of our usual partners. It's a climbing guide book for children and has all the information parents need to get out there, have a go safely and get back in one piece. Features lots of photos of other children in action and all boulder problems and routes have been tested by youngsters of various sizes, which means they're definitely possible but the grading might be a bit off.

Lecture evening!
A guest slot at the Outside Lecture evening, May 2023

We've been invited to tell you all about circuiteering at the Outside lecture evening, Mixing It Up, on the 17th of May. Don't worry though, it won't be a lecture, more of a peek behind the curtains of how it all came about, what it looks like and what might be happening next. £5 entry fee goes to charity and guide books and merch will be available in the car park afterwards!

Gritstone Circuiteering Volume 2 FRA review
Gritstone Circuiteering Volume 2, reviewed in the Fellrunner magazine

The official magazine of the Fell Runners Association, The Fellrunner, have had a look at the book and reviewed in their latest issue (#134). The seem to get the idea and even though they might not be having a go at set of on-sight attempts at the climbing routes, they're pretty confident that even completely disinterested runners can get something out of it.
