Lead Climbing Clinic

Tuesday, February 27, 2018 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Student Recreation Center Rockwall

To sign up for a lead climbing clinic, it is required to have previously passed the Top Rope Belay test at the Rock Wall Climbing Center. In addition, you must be able to confidently climb on top-rope at the 5.9 level without falling.

Why do we require this set of skills?
Lead climbing is an advanced form of climbing that is not for the beginner climber. It requires a mindset and appreciation for detail that is not often achieved by someone new to the sport.
The clinic itself takes about 2 hours to teach and test. It is important that this time is spent on the safety aspects specific to lead climbing. In order to accomplish this objective, it is necessary that the climber already mastered and be able to adequately demonstrate the skill set involved in top-rope climbing.
We are eager for everyone to advance their knowledge of the sport of indoor rock climbing. However, this must be done in the safest way possible. If you are unsure whether or not you are ready for lead climbing, please feel free to call the Rock Wall at 512-245-4979. If you know you are ready, then we are eager to help you on your journey down the climbing trail.
