What's Included

This two day course takes place in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife refuge and is designed to give the aspiring lead climber more confidence and skills to start lead climbing independent of an instructor. In this course we will spend a fair amount of our time honing the student’s practical skills of solid gear placement, constructing belay anchors, rope management and resting and belay stances. It is our experience that if the student feels solid on these basic aspects then the student will have greater confidence when lead climbing and will be less intimidated. Time will also be spent on the less obvious skills that provide a psychological boast when lead climbing such as planning your route, choosing your gear and racking and reducing rope drag. Mock leads will be followed up by the student traditionally leading climbing routes within their abilities. Traditional Climbing II is designed as a student led climbing trip with the student selecting the routes, making the approach and leading the routes. 50% Deposit due at registration.
