Lead Climbing Course
Hardrock can offer you a comprehensive course on all aspects of indoor lead climbing over two sessions. Climbers will learn all they need to know for safe and enjoyable lead climbing and belaying from an experienced instructor.
The course is run over two mornings on a weekend. The course includes; instruction and entry, all ropes and belay devices and an experienced instructor. All participants must have their own lead harness (click to view appropriate harnesses).
Participants also receive a 15% discount on the purchase of harnesses, shoes and ropes in the gear shop (conditions apply).
On completion of the course participants will have the opportunity to attempt their 'Hardrock Lead Climbing Assessment', which allows them to lead climb and belay at Hardrock.
The Lead Course is $120.00 per person and is suitable for those aged 16 and over (those aged 16-17 will need a parent or legal guardian to complete an 'Assumption of risk' form prior to the course).
Since the easiest lead climbs are usually grade 15 -16 we recommend participants are comfortable top-roping at this level.
The next Lead Courses are scheduled for:
Sat 21 & Sun 22 January (8.30 - 11.00am) CBD
Sat 4 & Sun 5 February (8.30 - 11.00am) CBD
Sat 25 & Sun 26 February (8.30 - 11.00am) Nunawading
