Kiipeilyareena - The climbing venues in Salmisaari,
Kalasatama and Tammisto!

Lead course

Lead climbing brings a lot of new dimensions to your climbing, but it also places great demands on the skills. Lead climbing course is an advanced course for enthusiasts who already have the top rope skills and some climbing experience. During the course you will learn how to belay a lead climber, but also how to lead climb safely.

The course also includes a monthly card with free rental gear. It is crucial to gain more lead climbing experience after the course. Therefore the monthly card starts right from the day of the course, and in order to take advantage of the card, it is best to schedule the course for the month period that best suits you. For annual members, we add one month extra to the annual card.
