The responsibility of taking the “sharp end” and leading the rope is no joking matter - and the belayer’s job is even more important.
In Part I of this two-part class you will learn about preparation and visualization, as well as strategies for climbing efficiently, including how to rest. We’ll focus on clipping techniques and practice falling, as well as doing some climbing, of course.
In Part II of the lead class we’ll have a brief recap of Part I to get you warmed up, then you will focus on the act of lead belaying. We will focus the basic mechanics of a lead belay before going over the nuts and bolts of giving safe dynamic belays that will give your climber the confidence to push forward!
