Rock Climbing

Complete Rock

Complete Rock combines Rock 1, 2 & 3 and will enable you to become a proficient top-rope and sport lead climber.

Complete Rock is a very thorough course for both novice climbers and gym climbers with relatively minor experience who want to become proficient top-rope and sport lead climbers. Your learning outcomes will include how to safely approach a cliff edge in order to build, rappel, belay, communicate and climb from your own simple and complex top-rope anchor systems. You will also learn sport lead climbing skills such as clipping bolts, lead & top belays, anchor threads & lowers, single & multi-pitch lead strategies, rock climbing movement skills, advanced rappels and basic rescue techniques. Clients appreciate the extra day of training in order for them to review and practice the more complex systems and gain the confidence required to safely begin top roping and sport lead climbing on their own outdoors. Complete Rock is the perfect foundation for our more advanced Placement Protection lead course.
