Lead Climbing School - Day 5 of 5

  • September 15, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • 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:

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

Class schedule:

Sept 15          Sunday 9:00 am–5:00 pm Prescott (directions will be in syllabus)

The weekend classes will be in the Prescott area.  Starting time at The Promised Land will be approximately 9am.  Most people will be camping at the Promised Land, or staying overnight in the area Saturday night.  If you plan to drive up on Sunday morning, please plan to be at the Promised Land parking area before 9am.
