You already know the basics of tying in, belaying, and movement, now it is time to become the perfect climbing partner and learn how to lead belay and clean anchors!
The goal of this course is to teach participants how to lead belay and clean anchors becoming fast, safe, and efficient. These 2 skills will greatly effect the amount of climbing that you can get in on one day and will make it easier for you to find climbing partner.
We will begin the day by setting up some climbs to have some fun and to get your blood moving. Next you will dive into the lead belay lesson. How it is different from top rope belay? What to look for? How to catch a fall?! What is short roping? You will have plenty of time to practice before lunch.
After a delicious lunch made by our local partners you will spend the afternoon learning how to clean anchors. Your precious climbing gear is on the wall and someone needs to go up and retrieve it. You will learn how to use some new pieces of equipment and some special techniques used for cleaning anchors.
By the end of this course you will have learned the skills that any lead climber looks for in a partner. Pretty soon you will be getting on the sharp end yourself!
