Lead Climbing School - Day 3 of 5

  • Sep 12, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is an advanced climbing class. Even if you don’t plan on leading, you will learn much about the dynamics of climbing, and it will make you a safer climber. Protecting a climb is a different skill from climbing itself. We will talk about the dynamics of lead falls, how to prepare for a climb, the differences between single-pitch and multi-pitch, and the differences between clipping bolts and placing natural pro. There will be no “true” lead climbs during the class, but we will provide simulated leading exercises.

Class curriculum:

Tue Lecture, slide show: introduction, the lead fall, equipment

Wed Lecture, slide show: equipment (continued); the process and techniques of leading

Thu Lecture, slide show: multi-pitch techniques, the descent, leader rescue, aid climbing

Sat Hands-on practice: pro placement (Prescott)

Sun Hands-on practice: leading - sport & trad (Prescott)
