The Rock Leader Program is intended for experienced climbers who feel ready to jump on the “sharp end” and lead on trad gear. Leading is a very rewarding and exciting form of climbing, but it can also be dangerous if you have not prepared yourself technically, physically, and mentally. Full comprehension and mastery of these skills is a long process that demands respect and patience. By taking this course, you will be able to jump-start that learning process and upon completion, you should have a working knowledge of the many skills required for a leader to climb safely and efficiently.
Rock Leader is a 3 day program for most climbers. If you are looking for a refresher course, or feel you don’t need all three days, please call us to discuss.
Topics covered include (but are not limited to):
- Placement of traditional protection
- Anchor building and cleaning
- Belay systems for the leader
- Rappelling setups
- How to properly protect a pitch of climbing
- Route selection and terrain assessment
