Many climbers find it difficult to make the transition from top roped to lead climbing and although lead climbing can be a more satisfying and enjoyable way of climbing it can also be more dangerous, if done badly.  Our course is designed to give participants the most thorough introduction possible whilst under the watchful eye of their instructor.
