YOUTH SUMMER LEAD
Cliffhanger is introducing a new Youth Summer Lead Climbing intensive workshop. It aims to teach children how to lead climb and lead belay. This program provides a total of 15 hours coaching over one week. At the end of the program, children will be exposed to safe lead climbing practices.
This program is suited to 11-18 year old kids climbing at or above grade 15 but, we also have a range of wall angles and lengths to accommodate a variety of levels so don't worry about your climbing level, we'll personalise the program for each child. Kids start off by tackling our 7-metre low court lead wall, progress through to our stepped-overhang wall, old Arcteryx wall, and cone wall. By the end of the program children will have the confidence to lead climb our iconic Skywall, AME and Entreprise wall. Children will still need to undertake a final lead climbing test before they can be lead climbing certified.
A lead climbing compatible harness
A single dynamic rope of at least 50 meter (can be shared between two people if necessary)
A grigri (can be shared between two people)
We recommend a minimum climbing grade of 15 however exceptions can be made.
Dates: 20th - 24th of January 2020
Time: 3pm - 6pm
