Lead 101

After you have honed your top rope skills, you may be ready to learn the fundamentals of lead climbing and belaying. Learning to lead will add new challenges and adventure to your climbing. Sport climbing, as it is referred to, differs from top roping in that the rope is not secured to anchors at the top of the climb. Instead, the climber trails the rope up with him/her and clips it into anchors along the way up the route.

What people are saying

“I had a birthday party there for my 9 year old son. Parents are still coming up to me days later, telling me how much fun their son had at the party. I heard one boy tell my son that it was the “best birthday party ever”. I was surprised at how much fun they really had. I would highly recommend it.

Joe A., Online Review

I felt very safe there because of the very good/careful instructions given to our small class, enabling individual attention to each student. There was also a watchful staff presence in the climbing area. All in all, lots of fun!

Jason S, Online Review

My family and I had a great time! My 11 yr old girl and my 7 yr old boy both had a blast! There was plenty of climbs to do for all abilities. It was a great confidence booster for my son. He was very reluctant to try anything, at first. But after watching his sister and the rest of the kids and climbers for awhile, he was coaxed into putting on the “belts” and he was hooked. He absolutely loved it! And he was able to try and succeed at the easier climbs, which as a parent, I was glad to see that he was willing to try! We will definitely be back again, as soon as we have another school break.
