Three days on this Peak District Learn to Lead Climb Course will allow you to get your head around the technical aspects of climbing indepenendently on single pitch routes. This climbing course covers essential skills and is a great opportunity to put your skills to the test and walk away with some excellent lead climbingknowledge and experience.
We will be exploring all aspects of climbing, tailored to suit your needs depending on your experience. With a low ratio of 1:3 (often 1:2) we can ensure that we have sufficient time to have an in depth approach to learning.
Over the 3 days you’ll try a selection of climbs and learn a ‘toolbox’ of essential lead climbing techniques to ensure you leave the course confident that you can safely lead climb on shorter climbs under your own steam. Lead climbing skills are introduced safely and progressively by highly experienced instructors to ensure you get the most from your course.
The selection of techniques covered will include:
Developing a thorough knowledge of suitable equipment for lead climbing and learning to manage it while climbing
Developing a full understanding of climbing grade systems for single-pitch climbs and learn how to select appropriate initial lead climbs
Crag etiquette and best practice when climbing at busy venues
Skills for efficiently placing protection
Skills for building efficient belay stances on single-pitch climb
Efficient rope management and belaying on lead climbs
Developing movement skills to aid lead climbing
Dealing with common problems that might occur while leading
Plenty of climbing!
