This course is for climbers who want to get on the sharp end of a rope and lead their first indoor route. Leading any route carries risk - under careful guidance, learn best practice to control and minimise them. Our experienced instructors will help you master the principles:
- identifying hazards (groundfalls, back-clipping, Z-clipping) and how to resolve them
Your instructor will also give you an in-depth guide to the equipment and the seemingly endless variations when it comes to belay devices, ropes, quickdraws, harness and slings.
This course is 4 hours long with a ½ hour break. It starts at 1.30pm and finishes at 6pm.
Please note - this course is only suitable for climbers with experience of belaying/top rope climbing (e.g. someone who has completed a beginners course). Anyone without this level of competence will not be able to take part.
