Pre-requisites: Able to climb top rope at 5.10 level indoor or 5.8 level outdoor. Having indoor leading experience is a bonus -- you'll receive 15% discount. Required Equipment: You need to bring a climbing rope for you (or your) group to lead, a set of minimum 6 quickdraws, two 60cm (24") slings (runners) with two non-locking carabiners, a belay device such as a grigri. Pre-course Prep: We will send you a prep-document with links to a series of video clips to help you prepare for this course. This prep-document will help you choose the above required equipment to purchase. You are encouraged to follow the video clips to practice the skills and techniques as much as you can before comimng to the course. This helps you speed up your learning curve on the cliff. (Near the end of the course, while under-prepared participants may feel a bit information overload since a brain can only work so hard for so many hours, adequately prepared participants may still have the mental capacity to add the learning of foundamental multipitch leading and rappelling techniques.)
Duration: 4.5-10 hours (influenced by indoor lead experience & class size) in 1 day. Post-course Review: You will have access to a series video clips to review key lessons of the course for a limited time period. This helps you consolidate your learning, so you can feel even more confident to return to the cliff to lead a sport route with your climbing partner and rappel on your own.
