Lead Climbing Course

Want to lead epic routes and traverses on Rockit lead nights?

Our lead climbing courses are designed for indoor climbing at Rockit for climbers wanting to expand their climbing experience. This workshop is not for first time climbers as we require you to become competent with our top rope belay system and having strong climbing ability (climbing grades 18+) in our gym.


Participants will learn how to set up and prepare for lead, how to lead climb and how to lead belay. An assessment at the end of the session will determine issue of lead license. If requirements are not met, lead license will not be issued - participants may be given an opportunity to re-test on a different day with no extra charge.

The course includes:

  • Entry to the Gym.

  • 3 hour lead climbing and belaying lesson and assessment.

  • All required gear supplied by us (excluding harness)
