Learn To Lead Climb
For those who want to push their climbing abilities and goals even higher, learning to lead climb is a great way to access even more of the vertical world. Explore the fundamentals of lead climbing with the professional guides at Apex Mountain School. Our guides will teach you how to place and clip your own gear, as well as introduce you to the “sharp end” in assisted lead climbing scenarios with backup belays. A private guide and all technical climbing gear (rock climbing shoes, ropes, helmets, harnesses, etc.) are included.

Learn to lead climb clinics are designed for those with previous top rope climbing experience. If you want to practice more top rope rock climbing check out our beginner course or our climbing course.
