Intro to Sport Lead Climbing

Sunday, February 16, 2020

Our lead course is for those that have been top rope climbing and are ready to take things to the next level. Learning to lead climb gives you access to more walls as well as better prepares you for outdoor climbing. In this course, you will learn about the risks involved in lead climbing, risk management, lead climbing equipment, clipping techniques, lead belaying, and falling skills.

Prerequisites: Lead climbing is not a beginner skill set. We require a base of experience to take our lead course. You need to have been climbing regularly for several months. You need to be top rope certified in our gym prior to registering for the course. You need to be able to climb 5.8 routes in our facility numerous times in a row.

Ages 14 & up.
