The Objectives

You'll gain an understanding of what's required to lead rock climbs, and have chance to practice your leading skills.


* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

What to Expect

The aim of the course is to help you progress towards leading independently. This will be carefully tailored to suit your ability • as well as your aspirations. We feel it's very important to select climbs that match your skill level, in order to safely develop your confidence.

Each morning the course staff will decide on a venue which is best suited to the weather conditions and the group. Our programme's flexible, and a high staff to student ratio allows us to focus on individual needs. We'll normally climb on multi pitch crags on both days. Over the weekend we intend to look at the following areas;

Personal equipment (and racking it)

Gear placement

On the sharp end • the process of leading

Mental preparation

Lead belaying

Stance organisation

Abseil retreats

Emergency procedures

Judgement, route choice and route finding

Experience Required

You should have already mastered the basics. If you're leading indoors or on sport climbs this is a great start, if not, then you should've spent a bit of time following friends up trad climbs.
