Synopsis

This book is in the same series and is a natural follow-up to the successful "Climbing Games". With the increase in the use of climbing walls more people are learning to lead indoors. This tends to be a more rapid progression than it may be outdoors, and also allows access to much steeper leading at a lower level of climbing experience. There is also an expectation that falling off is the norm, a complete reversal of early stages of leading outdoors on traditional climbs. Teaching leading indoors should be done progressively, the aim being to develop the climbing skills needed very thoroughly. Developing the skills for safe and efficient lead belaying is equally important. Ian Fenton has been involved in teaching leading outdoors and on indoor walls for a number of years. This has also involved evaluating and signing off other instructors to teach leading, at a number of climbing walls; both prior to the advent of the Climbing Wall Leading Award (CWLA), and now as a provider of the CWLA. In the past the teaching of leading has often been done haphazardly, with limited progression, poor route choice and inappropriate belaying.

With the help of the exercises in this book it should be possible to design an appropriate progression to suit any individual, of any age or ability, who is learning to lead indoors and lead belay.

Ian began climbing with the scouts and his brother in 1972. They both moved on to leading in Lancashire and Yorkshire, but when transport was a problem climbed on the local GPO store wall, until the police believed they were breaking in! Climbing was something you did outdoors back then, and during the winters they ventured out winter climbing, and aid climbing, and visits to Leeds University climbing wall were a way to keep fit. Meeting various local climbers over the years lead to Ian climbing through many areas of the UK and visits to Norway, France and Spain. Redundancy when twenty-seven lead to taking a degree at Ilkley College and the influence of Pete Livesey. He went on to completing the Mountaineering Instructor Certificate and joining the ranks of professional outdoor instructors. Work at Glenmore Lodge and Plas y Brenin as well as local LEA centres gave him a well-rounded instructing background though he always continued climbing for fun, most often with his wife Bev. The acquisition of a small base in Orpierre, France has encouraged him to continue pushing himself on climbing walls and sport climbing.
