rock climb - introduction to outdoor sport leading - July 15, 2023

A workshop to introduce climbers to sport leading on outdoor routes. Minimum topic list includes how to lead belay, how to clip a bolt, the perils of back- and z-clipping (and how to avoid them), how to mitigate the elevated risk of lead climbing, and bolted anchor systems. Participants will perform mock leads of easy routes to practice the new skills, while still being protected by a top rope in case of errors. Volunteers will also be needed to run top-rope backup belays for the participants. Registration required to match participant count to rope and volunteer numbers.
