dam Luzzone climb

So I am going to climb dam Luzzone this year but it's been 2+ years since I pulled on a harness (sport climbing for fun) & I am not a qualified lead climber.

I'm looking to connect with a qualified lead climber that would be interested in taking on the Dam wall in the 1st half of July. Must be a certified lead Climber.

If we make a good connection entry, a decent sit down lunch & your travel costs are on me.

Thanks Folks.
H.

Re: dam Luzzone climb

On a related matter, has anyone rented our harness, skid lid etc here in CH.

I rarely climb & can't justify the outlay for this outing.

Thanks
H.

Re: dam Luzzone climb

It shouldn't be too hard to find a place which rents gear. For example, Bächli has a shop in Zurich and rents out many things, but there may be better deals out in the small mountain towns.

Also, don't underestimate the dam. I know people who were quite active climbers leading up to their trip and turned back after a few pitches. It is long, and overhanging, and there really isn't a place to rest. One planned to bring some sort of hanging seat next time, to be able to recover better while belaying.

And finally, WTF is a "certified lead climber"? The Swiss gyms that I know will let anybody sign a form saying that they know how to lead, and you don't normally get to practice actually installing quick draws in the gym. Personally, I'd only go out with somebody who I trust both technically and attitude wise, and excepting IFMGA level credentials (which of course, are a whole nother level), I don't think any certification would be part of that judgement.
