Feeling a little rusty?  For this class, we charge by the hour and create a course tailored to your needs.   Whether you need one hour, or three, this course will get you back to feeling confident in your lead climbing skills.  This course is designed for 2 people.  The course will end in a lead climbing  re-test to make sure you’re ready to be set free in the gym again!  (The test is free and will not be included in the course time)
*this course is intended for people who already have a lead certification at GRR and need a refresher*
