Class Objectives-

This two-day class will teach participants the skills needed to safely lead sport climbs; to include setting up a top-rope anchor, cleaning the anchor and rapping or lowering down, along with some more advanced sport climbing skills.  On Day One, we will focus on the safety components and transitions of leading sport climbs and cleaning/rapping sport climbs, then on Day 2 students will practice leading, will learn movement techniques, how to fall safely (with some practice taking real falls), and advanced leader belaying.   It is designed for the climber who has climbed top-rope style, but who would like to advance into being a fully "independent climber" able to put up ropes at the start of a climb, and safely take down ropes at the end of a climb.


  Participants are expected to either be graduates of BMS Rock or have experience with good climbing belay skills, rappelling, good climbing communications and a good working knowledge of knots and the climber's safety system. Your experience does not need to be extensive, but this is not an introduction to climbing class. 

Special Gear Requirements-

All participants should have their own basic climbing kit: helmet, harness, belay device, PAS (or equivalent), and climbing shoes.  It is recommended that you also have a set of quick-draws (#8-12), and bring material to make your own quad anchor for top-roping (20 ft. of 7mm nylon cord and 4 locking carabiners).


Registrants will be contacted via email with specifics.  When you register, please make sure your email address is correct!  We look forward to climbing with you.

*** There is a $10 Cancellation Fee.  No refunds will be provided for No Shows. Contact leader if you need to cancel. ***
