Learn to Lead | Traditional

For the intermediate climber seeking to start climbing from the ground up or the person who has started to lead but wishes to fill in any gaps. After an evaluative climb, we will spend time selecting, placing and evaluating nut and cam placements on aid and while climbing. Between pitches, we will practice and evaluate belay and stance set-up considerations and continually look at route selection and risk management. At the end of the day, you will be better prepared to take the sharp end of the rope.
