$298 Purchase required to enroll
Gunks Rock Weekend

Introduction to Lead Climbing - For experienced climbers looking to get out on the sharp end and start leading, we're offering a two day clinic in our lead climbing program. Over the two days we'll cover: gear placement, extension, and anchor building; methods of belaying and lowering off the anchor; mock leads and rappelling safety tips.

This is for climbers who have prior experience and are familiar with traditional gear removal, can tie the basic knots (figure eight and a clove hitch), and rappelling.

Limited to 8 participants on a 4:1 climber-to-guide ratio. Participants in the lead clinic will need to provide their basic equipment (helmet, harness ,shoes) and their own basic rack - a selection of nuts, cams, carabiners, slings, and cordellette,
