Conquering all those top-ropes in the gym and ready for a new challenge? Learn how to lead climb which, in short, is a more advanced style of climbing that involves clipping your rope into gear on the wall, and in essence, placing your own protection as you climb up the wall.
Lead climbing is our most advanced form of indoor climb and requires this 3-hour training course before launching off on your own. We teach the art of lead climbing, safe belaying practices (which are far different than top-rope belaying), and safe methods for falling.
Please do not learn at home and the come to the gym and try this out yourself.
Classes must be booked in advance. Classes will only be run if there is a booking made at least 10 days in advance. Minimum of 2 participants required to book. If none of the available time slots work, please email StephanieF@centralrockgym.com to schedule a private class.
Note: The content of this class is meant strictly for use indoors. There is far more material to learn before taking these new skills outside.
