On this one-day course, we'll cover all the skills and systems you need to lead sport pitches, from anchor building on bolts, to lead belaying, clipping strategies, top-of-climb changeovers and safe rappels. We'll look for the gaps in your knowledge on sport leading and fill them with tons of solid technical systems and good judgement. Our low ratio ensures high-quality, focused instruction with increased leading time.
Courses typically take place at the Comox Lake crags near Cumberland. We also offer this at Nanaimo River and Quadra Island.

Couldn't have had a better instructor for us. Lyle was very knowledgeable, encouraging and calming. He tailored the course for us and what we needed to know. We got everything we wanted out of it. It was great!Paula Frigon, Edmonton, AB.
