Our Resin to rock course is designed for indoor climbers who wish to progress to climbing outdoors. Summit Mountain Skills conduct these courses in the Peak District, as it offers some of the UK’s finest climbing venues including the famous Roaches and Stanage Edge.

During the five day course, we will use several venues in order for you to explore different crags and rock types, as well as experiencing different climbing styles. Both single pitch and multi-pitch venues shall be used in order for you to gain as much experience possible.

A detailed equipment list will be sent to you after booking. Helmets and harnesses can be provided if required.


Designed for practised indoor climbers wanting to develop their skills in a challenging, enriching outdoor environment.

About Summit Mountain Skills

To learn about Summit Mountain Skills, you have to understand that my love for the outdoors started when I was just 7 years old. My father and I walked the Pennine way together and I instantly became hooked.

Over 40 years, my adventures have taken me all over the world with climbing and mountaineering trips across the UK, the Alps and the beautiful Himalayas.

I am a fully qualified Mountaineering Instructor. Such qualifications allow me to work all year, both in the summer (where I work in North Wales and the Peak District) and the winter (where I move to Scotland due to the scenic views). I take pride in transferring the skills I have developed over the years to other individuals, and watching their confidence and skills grow.

My work consists of introductory mountaineering courses right through to training and assessing Mountain Leaders; I also take pride in leading overseas trips. In addition to providing instruction at Glenmore Lodge – Scotland’s National Outdoor Centre – I have delivered Winter Safety lectures for the BMC and worked for Jagged Globe on rock and scrambling courses across the UK. I am also a course director for Mountain Training Wales, leading qualification courses for the organisation in the summer and winter.
