Lead climbing course

Are you ready to take the step onto the ‘sharp end’? Spend either 2 or 4 days rock climbing with our experienced instructors and learn the fine art of leading traditional rock climbs.

Our lead climbing course will take you through the nuances of different types of rock protection until ‘how and where’ to place wires, nuts, Friends, ‘draws and hexes becomes familiar to you.

We will then support you as you lead your first trad rock climbs. We will help you learn how to make the most of the natural protection that the rock offers you. When you top out, exhilarated from your achievement, we will teach you how to make yourself safe, place anchors, build belays and bring up your second safely.

As well as learning the technical skills, our lead climbing courses also teach you about route choice, rock climbing grades, guidebook interpretation and venue choice. We will also look at psychological techniques to help you deal with the mental challenges of being ‘on the lead’.

We believe strongly in tailored and bespoke courses for you as a climber. Our focus will be 100% on your ambitions, rapidly develop your skills and accelerate your climbing career. Our 2 day course will cover as much as time allows and will give you a great introduction to lead climbing.
