If you’re comfortable seconding or top roping routes on single pitch crags, this 2 day trad workshop is the next logical step towards learning to lead outside. ‘Learn to Lead Climb’ is the perfect follow-on from our Single Pitch Climbing course and aims to build skills in areas such as gear placement (and retrieval), belay building, and lead climbing in a single pitch environment.

All courses can be tailored to groups of most ages and abilities. Minimum age – 10 years old.

Participants should have a familiarity with outdoor trad climbing techniques such as single pitch top rope and bottom rope systems, basic anchor building and abseiling.

Tradsition is the perfect follow on from our Beginners Trad Climbing 1 day course or our Single Pitch Climbing 2 day course
