Expand your climbing horizons!

Our Lead climbing Course is your next step in climbing development once you have safely mastered top-rope skills. If you are top-roping comfortably at grade 5+ and are confident in top-rope belaying and rope work, you should consider learning to lead climb.

Whilst it might seem daunting, climbing between quickdraws, clipping your own rope as you go, our Learn to Lead climbing course teaches you all the skills you need to be a safe lead climber and belayer over three 2 hour sessions; ensuring that all the safety skills have been well-learnt before you head out on your own.
