Part I of Lead Clinic is the instruction portion. Participants must demonstrate solid top rope technique on 5.10 terrain to qualify to take the clinic. Students learn the basics of prudent and efficient lead climbing, and how to provide a solid lead belay. Successful graduates must pass a lead climbing test and a lead belay test to earn certification. The lead test may be taken two weeks after attending the lead instruction session. Solid lead climbing fundamentals and lead belay tactics, plus the ability to catch an unanticipated lead fall must be demonstrated on multiple routes selected by the tester.
