Lead climbing

Participants must pass a lead climbing clinic in order to be able to lead climb at the Tostrud Climbing Wall. Lead clinics are offered each semester when there is enough interest expressed by qualified climbers to hold an clinic (minimum of 4 climbers).  In order to qualify for the clinic, you must climb clean a 5.9 top rope route with no falls or takes on the rope.  A lead climbing staff member must watch you climb in order for you to qualify for a lead clinic.

  • Participants are required to wear masks at all times while in the building.
  • Participants must sanitize their hands before entering the wall area and upon leaving the area.
  • For top rope climbing, participants must sanitize before and after each climb.
  • All personal climbing equipment and shoes must be sanitized before coming to climb.
