The art and science of trad lead climbing

August 24

$125
Trad climber placing gear

nutHave you ever wanted to learn how to lead “trad” climbs and not known how to start?

Traditional climbing, or trad climbing, is a style of rock climbing in which a climber places all gear required to protect against falls, and removes it when a pitch is complete.

This is a 1-day introductory traditional lead climbing course run by CCA in conjunction with K7 Adventures. The course is a mix of theory and practical activities to introduce the foundation skills for traditional climbing, such as:

  • climbing knots
  • modern traditional climbing equipment
  • belaying leaders and seconds
  • setting up anchors
  • placing and removing protective gear
  • keeping yourself (and others) safe at the crag.

The course is being run by qualified, experienced Outdoor Recreation Industry instructors from CCA and K7 Adventures.

You will be provided with a gear list for this activity and there will be homework to complete before the course; homework will take about 60 minutes.

The course will take place at White Rocks, a small limestone crag located on the Queanbeyan River within 30 minutes’ drive from the centre of the Canberra CBD.

Participant numbers are limited to 3-6 climbers.
