Lead Climbing Refresher Course

Home Tours - Touring Monkeys Climbing Lead Climbing Refresher Course

You’ve led climbed before but would love a refresher course before the season kicks off? Maybe you’ve done lead climbing indoors and would love to apply your skills to the outdoors, maybe you need a reminder about how to set and clear your anchor, or maybe you just feel more comfortable going with a professional climbing instructor before going with your friends? In any case, joining this event is a great decision!

This trip is led by Tim Dunham, Climbing Instructor.

What’s the plan?

Tim will meet the group in front of the Schwyz train station at 10:00 and will give you a lift to Ibergeregg, where we will refresh the fundamentals of lead climbing and practice all day in an alpine environment.

At the end of the day, we will settle into a lovely Berghaus where we will enjoy the evening with a nice dinner. We will stay there overnight.

On Sunday after breakfast, we will go explore another climbing area for another full day of outdoor climbing! The location could be Gersau but we will adapt depending on the conditions. At the end of the day, return to Schwyz train station, from where you can take a train back home.


To join this lead climbing course, you need to be able to lead climb, whether indoors or outdoors.
