Lead Climbing School - Day 5 of 5

  • Sep 16, 2012 · 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 on bolts (Prescott area)

Class schedule:

Sept 16 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.

    The instruction was top notch and all the volunteers did a fantastic job making this class a success. A very well coordinated effort, and I was grateful to be a part of it. Thanks to all involved, including the students.
