Sport Leading


Rock Climbing Bozoo, WV

“Craigs Route 5.10” Bozoo, WV

The Sport Leading course is for climbers who wish to ascend from the ground up! You will learn the skills necessary to climb, project, clean, and top rope sport climbs. Students will be able to practice clipping, rope management, and falling while being backed up on a top rope system. Guided practice and preparation from this course will set you on track for leading your first sport route.

Sport Leading is a 2 or 3 day course format for 1-2 people. In order to get the most experience and retention of skills, a third day is highly recommended for those looking to accelerate into leading.

As with all of our courses, the curriculum can be tailored to fit your needs and wants. We strive to allow ample time for practice and use of the skills you will learn on any of our courses.
