Lead Climbing Class

Lead Climbing is climbing without the use of pre-set belays. One person (the leader) will start the climb carrying one end of the rope and will gradually attach it to additional anchors as he/she climbs, thereby establishing a belay system that progresses with the climb. Class sign-ups and additional information is available at the LaHaye Rock Wall front desk.

Lead Climbing Basics, Belay Techniques, Climbing and Clipping, and Practice are all covered in the four day course. *Must attend all class dates to complete the course.

Prerequisites: Intermediate to Expert level class; all must first attend Top Rope and Bouldering class, as well as pass the LaHaye Rock Wall Belay Test to take this course.

Route Cleaning Class

5:00-7:00pm / LaHaye Rock Wall

This class is set up for those that want to take their skills as a route climber outdoors. What do I mean by cleaning a route? It is the process of removing your gear from a route that you have climbed. On outdoor routes, quickdraws and anchors are not pre-established, so you need to set your own equipment and then remove it after you are finished. We are going to teach you the proper way to remove (clean) your equipment off a route. This is not something that needs to be done in an indoor gym but it is great to learn in a safe indoor setting. Lead experience is required.

Prerequisites: top rope, boulder and lead class or be currently certified in top rope and lead climbing at the LaHaye Recreation and Fitness Center Rock wall.
