Lead Climbing Seminar

Step out onto the Sharp End. 

For the vast majority of climbers, their first lead climb is one of the most memorable moments in their climbing life; and unfortunately for some as a harrowing near death experience.  This 4 hour seminar is designed to impart the skills, techniques, knowledge, and judgement necessary for a lifetime of lead climbing where the inherent risks are understood and managed.  We use a step by step, measured and common sense process that is applicable to any lead climbing situation, to create the confidence and competence necessary to accept the risks associated with lead climbing.
