Take the next step and learn to lead climb, clipping into the nearest anchor as you go. It will open up a whole new world of challenges both physically and mentally. We will show you how to lead climb and lead belay with confidence. Suitable for those climbing grade 5. While it is not necessary to have attended the Beginners Course it is a pre-requisite that you can top rope climb and belay to the same standard.
Once you've mastered lead climbing you can try it outdoors on the Limestone or Trad Climbing Experience.
3 x 2 hour sessions over 3 weeks. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your start time. The safety briefing and harnessing is included within the time allocated. As a member you are welcome to sign in earlier and warm up.
