Lead Climbing Class - Day 1

This is a 5 day advanced climbing class. If you are enrolling as a student, please visit the web link listed below to register for the class. You are not officially on the student list until we receive your class payment/registration. Club membership for 2014 can also be updated with your registration if you have not already paid for this years member dues.

All aspects of lead climbing will be addressed with a strong emphasis on multi-pitch trad climbing. Topics include gear (ropes and pro), the dynamics of lead falls, solid gear placement, rope management, anchors, and the mental as well as physical aspects of sport and trad leading. This class is for every competent climber. Even if you do not plan on leading, you will learn and understand the dynamics of lead climbing, and it will make you a more knowledgeable and capable climber and lead belayer. There will be no “true” lead climbs during the class – all lead climbing experiences in this class will be protected with a top-rope.

Class meets Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday evenings and all day Saturday & Sunday, the week of February 11th.

For additional class details and payment registration, please visit http://arizonamountaineeringclub.org/?page_id=262

Experience required:
AMC Outdoor Rock Climbing School and AMC Anchors School or equivalent experience. This includes solid basic rock climbing, belaying, and rappelling skills, all basic climbing knots and the ability to build solid anchors. Please note, we also offer the lead climbing class again in September for anyone taking the Outdoor Rock Climbing and the Anchors setting classes in the spring.
