Lead climbing uses more advanced climbing and belay techniques.
It begins with the ropes disconnected from all anchors. The lead climber is responsible for clipping the rope into anchors set along the wall while the lead belayer gives the rope slack to accommodate the proper anchoring.
Climbers must pass a test to lead climb or belay at any of our facilities.
The lead climbing lesson takes two (2) to three (3), two (2) hour sessions (based on the climber’s experience). The first session for all participants is Lead Class 101.
We recommend a minimum of 6 months climbing experience plus the ability to climb 5.9 very comfortably before signing up for this course. It is also recommended that an even number of people be present for the class with a maximum of four per session.
Cost for two (2) people is just $60 per two (2) hour session (does not include day use). For information regarding Lead 102 or Lead 103, please contact our Gym Manager, Meg using the link below or email email@example.com
