Lead tests are a $10 charge per attempt

In order to lead climb at The Rock Gym, you must complete your lead certifcation through a written test and an in-person test given by our lead instructor. For the written portion, you must pass with 100% to show your knowledge on proper lead climbing/belaying technique and safety. For the in-person test, you must show you are proficient, safe, and capable while lead climbing and/or belaying. You must be comfortable climbing at least 5.10, as the in-person test will be performed at this grade. You are allowed multiple attempts for the written portion, but only one attempt for the in-person portion. If you fail the in-person, you must wait a week before taking the in-person test again.

Test Requirements:

  • At least 14 year old

  • Comfortable climbing 5.10

  • Have your own harness.

  • Have your own assisted braking device examples: Petzl GRIGRI, Black Diamond ATC Pilot, Edelrid Mega Jul.


  • Rope rentals are available for $5 if you don't have one.

  • Partner not required (but recommended)
