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:
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 is a full day course, starting at 10:15 and finishing at 17:45. Please check times when booking.
Please note - this course is only suitable for experienced top rope climbers with current belaying/top rope climbing experience (e.g. someone who has completed a beginners course and has consolidated their skills). Anyone without this level of competence will not be able to take part.
Please note - this course is for over 18 year old participants only.
You must give 72 hours notice if you need to cancel or amend your booking. Cancellations within 72 hours from the course start date will not result in a refund, date changes or other amendments will not be granted.
I don't feel any improvement is needed, Nolan gave a great service and we had lots of jokes and fun. Lots of information I wasn't taught before that is super handy to have now!

I really enjoyed the course! I felt like the pacing was really good, I appreciated all the little breaks to help new information sink in. Our instructor Tom was great! Explained everything throughly, answered all our questions and was really friendly. I'm glad I did this course! I can't wait to try more lead climbs

Great course! Good instructor (Tom) and instructor to student ratio as well as length of the course Would be helpful to get the lesson sheet, a summary of the do’s/don’ts, and key risks of lead climbing which we run through during the lesson as a reminder and check list before doing it on our own after the course.

Course was perfect; great instruction, carefully planned, and both enjoyable and challenging. Just a shame the 4th person was a no-show!
