This is the rock climbing module of the intermediate climbing course. You may sign up for this course as part of the Intermediate climbing package or as an individual course if you want to focus only on rock climbing. We teach you what you need to know to advance from a basic level climber where you followed the lead climber to take you to the point where you can competently lead mid 5 level rock climbs. We assume a basic level of anchor building expertise as taught in the Intermediate Alpine Climbing Essentials module. We teach climbing techniques, clipping bolts,  selecting trad gear, placing trad gear, block leading and swinging leads to provide you the tools to get into lead climbing.

Prerequisite: Intermediate Alpine Climbing 1/Self-Rescue 1 or equivalent
