If you are a regular climber, looking to move onto the steeper walls and learn new skills, this is the course for you.
The ‘Introduction to Lead Climbing’ course will teach you all the basics of lead climbing. You will learn about the equipment used in indoor lead climbing, how to belay for a lead climber, how to lead climb and cover the techniques involved as well. As the course teaches belaying as well as climbing, this course runs with 2 people, so one can learn climbing while the other learns belaying.
This course covers learning to fall as well!
The course includes 2 x 2 hour sessions with an instructor and equipment hire.
This course would best suit a climber already climbing regularly and consistently at about 5+ or 6a, and who consider them selves past beginners standard. The instructor can then focus on advanced skills
Priced per person. As 2 people are needed for this course, we may need to reschedule your session if the second space remains empty. We would suggest taking to the GCC Climbers page on Facebook if you are looking for a partner for this course.
Introduction to Lead Climbing is only available to 16 years and above
