Taking the Lead

Tired of top roping? Feel like falling? Craving some clipping?

Then do we have the course for you! Taking the Lead through the VIRG will teach you the fundamentals of lead climbing. You should be comfortable top roping and will need your VIRG belay check and paid up dues before you can take this course.

You can read more about the course here: http://www.verticallyinclined.com/index.php/climbing-courses-a-camps/adult-courses/taking-the-lead-learn-to-lead-climb

Members of the Meetup pay a discounted rate of $75 + GST.

Course will be booked based on participant availability and requires a minimum of four climbers to run.
