Trad Lead Climb Confidence
This workshop is to help you feel more confident and have more fun when you are lead climbing. Heavily focused on techniques and tactics which can really help you maximise your climbing.
Starting with how to prepare for a lead, developing strong systems and protocols. Positive things you can do if you find yourself becoming anxious when on the route. How to break it all down and help you avoid common pit falls that can cause your mental game to collapse. We will be safeguarding mock leads during the day with a top rope and encourage you to test and build more trust in your leader placed protection. All very practical and with many take away-able skills and techniques you can practise.
