Lead Classes

Lead Classes

Intro to Lead

This is a two-day class that will meet the same day of the week for two consecutive weeks.  Day one will cover clipping techniques, back clipping, z-clipping, bad leg positioning, lead belaying, giving a soft catch, falling, risk assessment, and more.  Day two will be 1 week after day one in order to give you plenty of time to practice. 

Day two will consist of more falling in many different situations with students actually leading routes while receiving feedback from their coach.  Risk assessment will also be covered in more detail on this day.  At the end of the second day students will have an option to become lead certified at CityROCK.  For any other questions please email adult programs

Falling Clinic

This clinic is for those who are already lead certified at CityROCK and want more confidence catching and taking lead falls in the gym.  During the clinic, you’ll receive hands on coaching and lots of practice falling and giving soft catches.  You will learn proper belay stances, as well as how to maintain the appropriate amount of slack for different situations and gain confidence giving soft catches. Practice falls and catches will take place at the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th clips. This clinic will help you overcome areas of nervousness such as specific wall angles or clipping stances. The clinic also covers rope management, personal risk assessment and mitigation practices while on the wall.   Please contact Matt Jones with questions.
