Learn to Lead Rock Climbing Courses
One of our most popular rock climbing courses, are the Learn to Lead climbing courses, which we run in the Peak District, Yorkshire, the Lake District and Snowdonia. However, we do not schedule these in advance, as we like to make each one bespoke. This is how we adapt them to cater for different levels of ability and experience.
Having become a competent ‘second’ in a rock-climbing pair, the obvious next step is to learn how to lead climb yourself. Whether sports climbing or ‘traditional’ climbing, the additional challenge of leading brings extra reward, but also extra risk. Our courses will help you to understand the additional risks and teach you how to manage these risks. This is through both technical skills (for example using ‘trad’ protection) and through mental coping strategies.
These skills and knowledge are 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)
