The course teaches the fundamentals of lead climbing a bolted (sport) route on natural rock and prepares you for a lifetime of climbing and route possibilities. Have you climbed a gym or had a friend ‘put up the rope’ for you? Now it’s time for you to climb on the ‘Sharp End’ and get the rope up!
You will learn the techniques and skills needed to successfully climb with a partner. Take the next step in your climbing progression and sign up today!
This course will build confidence and create an excellent foundation for you as a lead climber. Discover beautiful climbing locations around the Alps and build partnerships with fellow climbers.
What is the difference between Lead climbing and Sport climbing? Sport climbing implies pre-drilled bolts in the rock for clipping quickdraws and a bolted anchor. Lead climbing means the first climber takes the rope up the route, clipping bolts along the way for protection. The lead climber can set up a Top-rope for the 2nd climber or group or simply ‘clean’ the anchor and leave no gear behind.
We offer this as a 2-day course that includes overnight lodging, dinner, and breakfast. The 2nd day allows for more climbing and practicing your newly learned skills. Plus, hanging out with the group and meeting others is a lot of fun. Choose the 2-day option at checkout and get ready for an adventure.
