The aim of this one-day course is to provide a comprehensive introduction to climbing sport routes in the outdoors, tailored specifically to Melbourne’s rapidly growing base of indoor “lead” climbers.
On this course you will learn to:
- Search for, inspect and use fixed equipment in outdoor climbing locations
- Return at the end of your session without leaving any of your equipment behind
- Recognise the most common climbing mistakes and easy methods to mitigate them
- Make intelligent decisions in the outdoors.
BONUS – as part of this course you will learn about the humble prusik loop – a very simple, extremely useful piece of climbing equipment that not many climbers carry or even own. You will learn just how useful it can be in all sorts of situations, and as a special thank-you for signing up to this course – we’ll give you one to keep!
