Learn To Lead Climb In Six Days - RC3

From Learner To Lead Climber In Six Days

Learn To Lead Climb is a six day climbing course, in the Gap of Dunloe and Dingle, Kerry.

Over the six days, which will be divided into two blocks, you will climb and abseil, focus on climbing techniques and communication, use different methods of belaying, use a range of climbing equipment, learn to place gear, set up a climb and lead climb.

At the end of this course you will be able to use a guide book, lead climb while placing gear, set up a climb, plus second a climb and remove gear. You will also know what equipment is necessary to be a self sufficient lead climber.

Learning to place gear safely; such as wires, hexes and friends; is a long apprentice style journey, which generally is done under the careful supervision of a more experienced climbing partner. This element of lead climbing in specific cannot be rushed, and while you will be a lead climber at the end of our intensive course, safe gear placement will be a learning journey that will continue long after your climbing course.

This course can be used as the first step of achieving the SPA leadership qualification.
