Over four visits, this course will introduce you to all of the skills necessary to lead climb at indoor climbing facilities*. We cover many topics over this time, including clipping, lead belaying, falling, problem solving and avoiding and route selection. These technical skills are delivered alongside constant technique coaching – a vital and often overlooked part of leading that we believe to be necessary in building the skills to be a confident lead climber.
Lead Climbing adds new elements to climbing that enhance the challenge. That 3+ slab you’re used to belting out for warm up will look totally different – daunting at first, perhaps, until our instructors ease you safely into the mindset of a lead climber, giving you the essential skills along the way.
