Lead Climbing Course

$254.25 (HST included)

True North Member Price $203.40

The Lead Climbing Course is for those who are ready to move on from top-roping and take their climbing to new heights. The course consists of 6 hours of instruction given in two 3-hour sessions, normally held a week apart. You will learn the skills and safety knowledge needed to lead climb indoors, along with practice to build competence and refine your skills. The non-member price includes a two-week membership starting the day of the first lesson.

Lead Climbing Course Details

In order to take this course, one of our instructors will assess your climbing level to be sure that you are ready for lead climbing before signing up for this class. Before taking the Lead class, you should have been climbing for a year or more, and be able to onsight 5.9 routes and redpoint 5.10-. You should expect to climb 8 to 10 climbs between 5.7 to 5.9 during each 3-hour session, so you need to be strong enough to do that with a little rest in between climbs.

Those taking this class are expected to provide their own equipment: rope, belay device (choice of a tube device such as a Petzl verso or ATC, or a Grigri, or both) and a locking carabiner for each belay device. We run this class for groups of 2, 4 or 6 people at a time. Email: leadclass@truenorthclimbing.com

Our lessons prepare climbers to safely climb and belay indoors in our facility. Those interested in climbing outdoors will need further instruction. We strongly recommend hiring a properly-accredited professional outdoor climbing instructor to learn the additional skills needed to climb safely outdoors.
