Leading on rock help
« on: June 11, 2013, 08:28:59 PM »
Hello,

My friend and I are primarily ice climbers but now wanting to learn how to lead on rock in order to improve our rope handling skills and take our rock climbing proficiency to the next level. 

Rather than paying big bucks for guide training, I was hoping someone out in NEClimbs land might be interested in mentoring a couple of easy going guys a few weekends this summer.  My partner lives in Burlington and I live in St Johnsbury so climbing anywhere in upper Vermont or New Hampshire would work.

Please let me know if this would be of interest, or if you know where we might get some good solid lead climbing training.

Thank you kindly,
Graham
