If you are ready to make the move from top-roped climbing into lead, or just want to refresh your skills, this is the class for you. Our trained instructors will teach the fundamentals of lead climbing in the gym and prepare you for climbing outside. This two-hour class covers knots and safety, rope management and care, gear selection and use, climbing, belaying and falling. Lead climbing is serious business, so take the time to protect yourself and get trained by a professional. Class participants should already have their own shoes and harness and feel comfortable climbing 5.9 top rope. Participants must be at least 13 years of age.
