This is THE class for individuals interested in entering the exciting world of lead climbing! Since this discipline is so extensive, we have broken it up into two sessions for the entire class.
The first session includes fundamental lead climbing skills like proper clipping methods, identifying dangerous foot placements, mock leading, mock lead belaying, rope management.
During the second session, you can expect actual leading (both climbing and belaying) plus a strong emphasis on performing and catching falls. This clinic is a MUST for anyone looking to advance their skills and become a lead climber.
