This week-end course is comprised of 1 day indoors and 1 day outdoors.

Our Lead Climber training program commences with one day at the Climb Fit Centre at St Leonards. Your qualified instructors will progressively introduce the skills you’ll need to climb safely and effectively at the “Sharp End”. Once we’ve completed the indoor training session we’ll continue with a full day of supervised outdoor Lead Climbing allowing you to test and refine your new skills.

On Saturday we will focus on introducing you to the equipment you’ll be using and how to use it, including tying into the rope using a Rethreaded Figure of Eight.  You will see us start with lead climbing simulations while on a top rope. This will include placing quickdraws on each bolt and clipping them as you climb! Safe and fun! From there we’ll get you on select Climb Fit lead climbs suited to your first leading experience. These routes have been chosen for you by your Climb Fit and ASM crew! We’ll then get you cleaning the route which will require removing all the quickdraws you’ve placed during the climb. This includes threading the anchors with your climbing rope so you can be lowered from the anchors.

Sunday will see the team at one of Sydney’s most beautiful ocean side climbing locations, Barrenjoey Headland. Some awesome Introductory Lead Climbs accompanied by some of our city’s most spectacular beachside views! 

What gear do you need to bring to the gym and the crag? All you need is your harness, chalk and climbing shoes. We will supply the rest!
