Once you have mastered top rope belay, now comes climbing at the sharp end of the rope.


You will receive advice on how to safely tie-in, belay and anticipate your climber’s falls.


The advance nature of the skill means smaller classes with a 1:2 instructor ratio.


Our UK qualified coach will give you an in-depth guide to the equipment and the seemingly
endless variations when it comes to belay devices, ropes, quickdraws, harness and slings.


This a two part course, 2hrs each and you must be able to take part in both to get lead qualified.


Please note – this course is only suitable for climbers with experience of belaying/top rope
climbing (e.g. someone who has completed a beginners course).


Anyone without this level of competence will not be able to take part.
