Rock Climbing 301 Course

Intermediate Level Course This course is for individuals with some climbing background that now wish to get out by themselves and learn to lead climb! This course will focus on effective techniques for leading ‘traditional’ (placing gear) and ‘sport’ (bolted) climbs in a single pitch setting confidently and efficiently. The course will look at climbing efficiently, gear placements and anchor building with lots of climbing and one on one coaching throughout from your Instructor. We start with an in-depth review of gear placements and climbing equipment, then move on to ‘mock leading’, (leading with a top rope) with the instructor alongside to coach. By the end of this intensive course you will have lead traditional climbs while the instructor ascends alongside looking at each placement you make. This course is the perfect next step for the top rope climber that wants to start leading sport and trad climbs by themselves!  Topics Covered: Lead climbing strategies and techniques for climbing confidently Equipment selection, racking and considerations Ropework; clean, efficient systems Detailed look at gear placements including: SLCD's (cams) Stoppers, Tricams, "Big Bros" and Hexentrics Advanced anchors using natural (trees/boulders/threads) and artificial (gear/bolts) components and single pitch anchor creation and considerations Evaluating fixed gear; bolts, pitons, sling material and stoppers Review of understanding guidebooks, reading topos and choosing appropriate climbs Common myths and truths about climbing equipment Course Prerequisites: Applicants must have taken our Foundation Level courses or can top rope 5.6 climbs, rappel and have experience placing artificial gear and building anchors.
