Learn to Lead

What to expect?

Our Lead Course is designed for more experienced climbers looking to advance their skills and try a new form of climbing. Restricted to groups of 3-4, this class is broken down into three x 3-hour sessions.

  • Lessons run based on participants availability and weight – within 30lbs of each other. Climbers can sign up individually, in pairs or full groups of 4.
  • Does not require Day Pass/ 10x Day Pass (Punch Card) for day of lesson
  • Participants need Grigri, locking carabiner and dynamic rope, min. 40m (All of these items are available at Basecamp for purchase)
  • Staffing ratio, 1:4 – Lead Instructor required (not instructors or belay staff)

If you are already trained in Lead climbing and would like to take a test we recommend calling ahead of time to see if there is a staff member available to administer the test. While we try to keep someone on site at all times who can administer a test, there is no guarantee. A $20 deposit is taken before the test and will be returned upon a complete pass of the test. The maximum weight difference for Leaders allowed in the facility is 50 lbs.
