Required level to attend courses and pass assessments

To attend our coaching courses you should be able to lead F6a+ and boulder V2, in order to obtain the most benefit. Remember, you can attend a course without being obligated to take an assessment!

Our assessments incorporate a high level of personal performance in addition to the obligatory coaching skills. We believe that it is not possible to coach with wisdom, empathy and authority unless you can draw from relevant personal experience.

The minimum personal climbing standard to become a Masterclass coach is F7a onsight (consistent), F7b+ redpoint and V6 boulder.
