Lead Rock Climbing Course
At City Summit, we support climbers to advance their climbing skills and offer our Lead Climbing course at no cost. If you want to take the challenge of lead climbing, our qualified instructors will teach you the necessary skills and best practice techniques for you to lead climb with confidence. Learn in the comfort and safety of Perth’s best indoor climbing centre before you head outdoors. Climbers will need to bring their own harness, shoes and already have the ability to climb grades 18+.

On successful completion of the course you will receive a discount voucher for 15% off in our Pro Shop. This voucher is valid for one week and can be used on any of the climbing equipment in store, including harnesses and shoes. All lead equipment required to complete the course will be supplied by City Summit, however if you prefer to learn with your own gear, you can use the 15% discount to purchase the necessary equipment prior to the course. Ask a friendly staff member for a recommendation on equipment. We can also offer personalised fit for any harnesses or shoes.
The Lead Course is run on a Thursday evening (6-9pm) each fortnight. Each course requires a minimum of four people to run and we take a maximum of 6 climbers per course. As the course is quite popular places normally fill fast. Get in early to secure your preferred date.
How to Book
You will need to visit the centre to book a place on the Lead Course.
On arrival ask a City Summit instructor to assess and sign off your ability to climb at or above a grade 18. This is to ensure you can easily manage the level of climbing required on the course. Once you have done this they will be able to check available course dates and book you in. We also ask for a $30 refundable deposit to hold your place on the course. If you are not yet climbing at a grade 18, we can discuss with you how you can get to this level so you can attend the course.
