Lead Climbing

A significant part of my work in recent years has been for those of you who would like to progress to leading routes at your own pace.  If you are considering this you will usually already be a 'competent second'.  If this isn't the case then leading is still possible as part of a longer programme - just get in touch. The aims are two fold with leading.  Firstly, it's essential to get you climbing confidently before getting you out on 'the sharp end'.  More importantly, some time will also be spent on the technical aspects such as placing gear, building belays and protecting pitches effectively.  This is particularly important due to inherent risk of leading, although managing this makes for a unique experience.
