Learn to Lead Rock Climbing Courses
We offer a range of rock climbing courses, including Learn to Lead courses, in the Peak District, Yorkshire, the Lake District and Snowdonia. We do not schedule these in advance on specific dates, as we prefer to make each one bespoke for you and adapt them to cater for different levels of ability and experience.
Having become an accomplished ‘second’ in a rock-climbing pair, the natural next step will be to learn how to lead climb yourself. Whether in a sports climbing or a ‘traditional’ climbing context, the additional challenge of lead-climbing brings extra reward, but also extra risk. Our courses will help you understand the additional risks and teach you how to manage these risks through technical skills (for example using ‘trad’ protection), and through mental coping strategies. All of this is delivered in a progressive and structured way so that you never find yourself on the ‘sharp end’ of the rope before you are ready. (Ratio 1:2 min and max)
