The Melbourne Indoor Rock Climbing Group Message Board › Lead Climbing Course
I've been climbing with my girlfriend for a while now and we're super keen to get our lead climbing cert.
Unfortunately we just missed out on the June lead climbing course (as we were away), and neither Hardrock in the CBD, or Nunawading have any dates for the next lead climbing course...
We've put our names down for the next course (at both venues), but they have no idea when it would be and we're super keen to get it ASAP!
So I have two questions:
1. Is there anyone capable (i.e. have their lead cert.) and willing to teach us to lead climb in the gym? (we're climbing grades 20-23 regularly - and we're happy to pay delicious money!)
2. If not, is there anyone who is thinking of lead climbing that would want to put their name down? (apparently bigger numbers means they'll do it sooner)

Hey Uli, I'm a member of the RMIT Outdoors Club, if you hook up with us on a Tues night with a rope, then you can jump on a top rope and learn, it won't cost you cause we are totally awesome people :D
Oh, an if you look up sport climbing 101 on youtube (download it with an app), it'll teach you all you need to know. string up a couple of quick draws (or biners on some string) an away you go. couple of pracs at the gym, then just book in to get assessed, easy peasy, saved yourself $120 each.
We climb at Hardrock CBD most regularly.
