Lead Climbing Courses

White Angles

Expand your climbing horizons opening up a whole new world of lead climbing lines! Our lead courses teach you all the skills needed to have full use of our climbing centre and its huge range of regularly changing lead routes.


How does it work?

Learn to lead climb

Please note that the courses which are bookable below are split over several sessions. Bespoke courses can be arranged at a date and time to suit you, for 2 adults or more. If you would like to organise a bespoke course, please complete this Enquiry Form and a member of the bookings team will get in touch.

The instructor ratio of 1:4 reflects the more advanced nature of the skills required, giving you plenty of opportunities to ask the instructor hosting the course any questions and get guidance when required. Our instructor will also give you advice on any equipment you might require, such as ropes and belay devices.


Fast track

If you would prefer to start lead climbing quicker, we also run a Fast-Track Straight to Lead course for beginners – as well as weekday and weekend 2-day lead courses –  at The Arc in Chippenham.
