MOUNT COOK WEEKEND

by Adventure Solos

OVERVIEW

We're in the Peak District for the Mount Cook weekend, at a modern outdoor centre where we've got various rock sports waiting for you!

On this rock sport event we focus on a few key rock sport activities so that we get a good taster of each activity. This weekend includes caving, rock climbing, a rock abseil and a via-ferrata (meaning "iron path" - a climbing route where you generally traverse horizontally using fixtures such as cables, railings and steel steps).

It's possible you will have tried abseiling or climbing on an activity wall at our Dearne Valley Weekend - now is your chance to put them to test 'for real' on rock! 

Accommodation is provided for the Friday and Saturday nights, and in the evening we'll enjoy some food together at a local pub and at Mount Cook's on-site bar (soft drinks are available!). 

Various meals are provided throughout the weekend as well as accommodation, instructors, activities and all equipment, You'll also have an Adventure Solos host (usually Chris) present throughout the event to make you feel welcome.

The November 2023 event will run with a small (10-12) group of guests for this 'pioneer' weekend. As it's the first time we have run it, we are happy to offer you a 10% discount on this event if you are happy to provide us with feedback after the weekend. Simply enter code 'MCPioneer' at checkout.
