About this trip

Up for a new sport? Learn how to leadclimb and get your lead-climb certificate! 

On this 5-day climbing safari trip you'll learn everything to start lead-climbing. The rope techniques, how to belay a lead climber, how to lead climb yourself and how to read a topo. Since our accommodation has wheels we will show you a couple different climbing spots. You'll learn about rope techniques, how to belay, knots and (if you want) we will do single pitch lead-climbing as well! Everything will be outdoors. 

It's ideal for any climber with some top-rope climbing experience or boulderer who would like to start lead climbing outdoors on single-pitch sport routes. During the course you will develop the confidence to become competent in leading exciting sport climbs outdoors. The lead climbing skills you learn on this course will also enable you to get your indoor lead climb certificate. 

For this trip you need to be(come) a member of the NKBV, the Dutch climbing foundation. It's obligatory to go climbing in Belgium to be a member and have the 'klimjaarkaart', but you can enjoy it the entire year: there are a lot of advantages like discounts, good & cheap travel insurance and you'll get the inspiring 'Hoogtelijn-Magazine' 5 times a year. You can become a member here.  Make sure to add the 'klimjaarkaart' as well!
