Intro to Sport Climbing

While there are quite a few areas where you can go top-rope climbing, lead climbing is really the key that opens the door to the endless possibilities rock climbing has to offer from multi-pitch to alpine and beyond. But, as the saying goes, you have to learn to walk before you can run.

Intro to Sport Climbing

BlackSheep's Introduction to Sport Climbing course focuses on giving you the skills and knowledge required to safely lead various routes in the outdoors, away from the safety nets provided in the gym environment. And lead climbing is really the gateway to a lot of amazing climbing from fun sport routes to multi-pitch climbing, long trad routes and even big walls.

The course will cover a wide variety of topics related to Sport Climbing including: Climbing equipment, lead belaying, clipping bolts & back-clipping, rope management, building anchors, cleaning anchors, reading topos, route planning and much, much more. Taught by ACMG certified guides, this course will give you a strong foundation in outdoor leading and allow you to safely get outdoors this summer.

Waiver & Risk Management:

As you know, outdoor activities involve numerous hazards including, but not limited to, avalanches, crevasses, rockfall, slips and falls, equipment failure, poor weather, etc. And while we do our best to anticipate and mitigate these hazards we cannot completely eliminate them. So, as with anything fun, you will be required to sign our Participant Release to take part in one of our courses or trips.
