The duration of our Learn to Lead rock climbing courses is two days, and targets those who are competent at seconding climbs but now aim to lead routes for themselves.
The Summit Mountain Skills team run this course in both Snowdonia and the Peak District, and aims to give you the skills and confidence required to lead your own rock climbs. The courses are run progressively, starting with you learning to lead on a top rope for safety, and then continuing to being the instructor on a safety rope. At this stage, you shall be assisted and constantly reassured.
Summit Mountain Skills’ Learn to Lead courses are run on a ratio of 1:2 in order to work closely with you and focus on your individual needs. You shall dictate the pace of this course, and will be tailor-made to suit your needs.
