Lead Climbing Clinic - Two day course

CSW_2017_SMM_SmithRockIntro_Sept-186.jpg

 

At the lead climbing clinic, we will teach the knowledge and skills required to lead sport climbing routes.

We will begin our day with a thorough introduction to lead climbing before we begin climbing. In a full hour of on the ground instruction we will cover aspects like gear, safety, clipping, rope management, etc. 

At the crag we will set up top-ropes on routes from 5.7-5.10 and provide everyone the opportunity to mock-lead a climb. This allows each climber the opportunity to practice clipping the quickdraws and managing the rope from the security of a top rope.  

If a climber demonstrates the ability to lead safely during their mock-lead we will open up opportunities to lead climbs.
