Lead Climbing

level up. become a lead climber

Are you ready to amp up the exhilaration of your climbing sessions? Or maybe you simply want to start building the foundations to begin climbing outdoors. Whichever it is we can help you get there

Lead climbing involves climbing with the rope and clipping it in as you go, requiring a greater level of skill than top-roping from both climber and belayer 

We start slow with a backup top-rope before going straight to lead, progressing slowly as your confidence builds
