Lead Night

Come lead climb at the SRC climbling wall on Friday from 5 - 8 pm!

Please note: this is not a lead climbing clinic, or learn how to lead climb class. You must pass an assesment in order to become certified to lead climb.

See the info on the Lead Clinic to learn how to lead climb at the SRC!



Lead Climbing Clinic

Learn the basics of lead climbing and belaying by taking this 2-day clinic. This clinic will assist climbers who want to participate in lead night, or want to further their skills as climbers. 

Note: This clinic does not automatically allow one to climb during lead nights; everyone will need to pass the lead assessment on regular lead night offerings. 



 Monday, October 7th from 5:30-8:30pm AND Monday, October 14th from 5:30-7:30pm. 

 All climbers will need a current SRC Climbing Wall Certification and waiver on file. Climbers will need to demonstrate the ability to climb 5.7 competently and cleanly on top-rope. They will also need to demonstrate flawless belay technique.


Belaying and climbing the 5.7 route will need to take place during wall monitor hours and BEFORE the clinic. Available wall monitor hours: Monday & Friday 5:30-8pm and Tuesday-Thursday 4-6:30pm.

We're excited to introduce three TruBlue Auto Belay Devices!

These devices will allow you to climb even if you can't find a belay partner, and are also great for training sessions.

Please note: An auto belay certification is required for use. If you already have a UAF climbing wall certification, all you need to do is set up a time with us and we will get you a new card that reflects the auto belay certification.

Lead Climbing

Join us Fridays from 6-8pm at the SRC climbing wall for Lead Night!

In order to lead climb you must pass a lead climbing and belaying assessment. Ask the wall monitor to be checked off.
