Description

Join me for this epic adventure rock climbing in the stunning beauty of England’s Peak District National Park!

After meeting up in either Manchester or Zurich (we will determine this later), we will head to Sheffield and settle in at our hotel. Once that is all done, the real fun can begin.

Each day we will get up and have a full English breakfast before heading into the park to experience the multitude of different climbing terrains within the park.

We will make our way up hard sandstones with no hooks at all, climb our way up walls that are littered with cracks and conclude our program by using a friend and wedge system to reach the top of Stanage Edge.

Once you reach the summit of this renowned rock and feel the wind in your hair, you will be hooked on Peak District climbing and sure to return in the near future for some more.

Our days will be long, so we will get in as many different types of climbing. Due to the vast amount of different climbs available to us, this trip is perfect for climbers of every level.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this exhilarating 5-day adventure as we take a traditional climbing tour of the Peak District!

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in 1974. I have been a Mountain Guide for the past 20 years, based in Zurich. Climbing mountains is my passion and this is why I am a guide. I do it because I love it.

My specialty are unkown routes in the central Swiss Alps, some of which might have not been climbed in ages. As a climber and a guide, I love discovering new terrain around my hometown and sharing this unique experience with my guests. If you are a passionate climber, you will love it.

This is why I don't offer more famous or classic routes, most of which I have already climbed. The real adventure and satisfaction for me is found in the challenge of the unknown. Definitely, guiding in this format requires much more effort and preparedness than repeating classic routes over and over. You can rest assured that I’m prepared and ready for these challenges.

I also have other activities on the side to support myself, like a trading company which includes a technical climbing and freeride equipment store in downtown Zurich, "Ruedi Bergsport". Feel free to come by and say hi!

I enjoy sharing impressions and experiences with my guests. I promise you will always see me just as excited as my guests during the tours. Why? As I said, I am a mountain guide because I love this.

Besides climbing, I also enjoy meeting interesting people. I am always open to sharing more than just the rope, like interesting conversations about politics, economics and philosophy. Walking home after a long day up in the mountain makes people open up and sometimes share deep moments as well. Keeping an open mind and sharing experiences helps you see beyond the horizon. This exactly what a good day in the mountains means to me.
