Are you ready to take your top rope skills to the next level and get on the sharp end? We offer lead climbing lessons for those who are ready to step up their physical and mental game both in- and outdoors!


Lead Climbing Lessons

*Requirements: Must be climbing at least 5.10 top rope before taking this lesson.

This lesson is 2.5 – 3.5 hours long (depending on group size). It can be done in a single session or split into two sessions.

You will first learn rope commands, how to tie a figure 8 follow through knot with a backup, clipping techniques, dangers to be aware of, as well as techniques for climbing on lead.
