Program Details
Lead Climbing Clinics - $15.00

Are you ready to take climbing to the next level? Tired of the same old top rope routine? ... then you're ready to lead! Students will learn the basics of lead climbing including fall dynamics, proper clipping/climbing technique, and lead belay! This clinic is designed to educate participants on the practices and policies required for lead climbing at our indoor climbing wall, while also creating a general foundation climbers can take with them when they leave the clinic. Topics covered in the clinic are proper communication, lead belaying, climbing and clipping techniques, falling, rope management, and risk mitigation. After completion of the course you will need to pass the lead climbing and belaying test in order to lead climb at the wall. Prerequisites: Participants interested in the lead climbing clinic should be comfortable top rope climbers at a 5.9-5.10 level. All participants must have also successfully passed the UREC Outdoors Climbing Wall belay assessment within the current academic year prior to clinic sign up deadline. Participants must sign a UREC Outdoors climbing/bouldering wall waiver before participation. Participants are allowed to provide their own harnesses, climbing shoes, and chalk. UREC Outdoors provides these items if participants do not have their own. All hardware to be used must be that provided by UREC Outdoors staff.
