NEW! Lead Climbing Class
Join professional mountain guide and Gold Crush Gym Founder Erik Bonnet for an in-depth lead climbing class.
When lead climbing, the lead climber or leader wears a harness tied to one end of a rope. The leader’s partner provides the belay, paying out rope as needed, but ready to hold the rope tightly, usually with the aid of a belay device, to catch the leader in the event of a fall. This is different than top rope climbing because in lead climbing, the leader carries the top of the rope with them as they progress up the route.
What makes this lead class unique? Well, we strive to do things differently at Gold Crush, so first we’re going to feed you while we hang out and get to know everyone during the first 30 minutes. We do this because when you rope climb you put your life in another’s hands, and as such, getting to know that person is an important part of the process.
We want you to feel comfortable and confident when you climb, so come learn with us! We can’t wait to see you.
