Are you conquering all those top ropes at Central Rock Watertown and ready for a new challenge? Learn how to lead climb! In short, lead climbing 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.
- Requirements: Top-rope certification, ability to competently top rope routes with a grade of at least 5.9 without any falls, and own a lead harness and ATC. Participants can practice with an brake assisted device such as a Gri-Gri after first learning these skills with an ATC.
- Itinerary: The class will consist of climbing 5-6 routes in the 5.7 – 5.9 range practicing clipping and lead belaying.
If you cannot make it to a class during the normally scheduled times, we can run private classes as long as we have at least 3 people who want to take the class. Lead ropes for the class will be provided by CRG.
