Outdoor Lead lesson
Our Outdoor Lead lesson includes 3 hours of indoor training, where we practice clipping, lead climbing and lead belaying with a GRIGRI before moving outdoors for a full day lesson.

Outdoors we focus on building and cleaning lead and top rope anchors. You will learn how to clean anchors on both a lower and rappel using a range of equipment options.

Our Rock Rescue course will help increase your confidence and knowledge of ways to get out of situations many climbers find themselves in. Fallen leaders, stuck ropes, injuries and weak seconds can all cause problems when attempting a climbing objective. This course will help you overcome some of these challenges.

This specialty course includes 2 full days of outdoor climbing, with instruction on rescue techniques from below and above. Some of the skills learned include escaping the belay, raising an injured, passing a damaged section of rope, as well rope ascending and lowering options for individuals and teams.
