Topic - Beginning to trad lead

rachchanter - on 17 Apr 2012
Hello,

After years of seconding I've decided to take the next step and start practicing trad leads and gear placement. Can anyone recommend places where there are easy single pitch routes that can be accessed from top and bottom by foot, i.e. like Stanage. I live near London but anywhere in the UK is good.

Secondly, a lead rack - I'm planning on getting a set of DMM wallnuts 1-11, a set of torque nuts, 10 quickdraws of 25cm, nut key, helmet and gear sling. I've already got 3 HMS and 3 locking carabiners, a couple of 60, 120, 240 cm slings, 50m outdoor rope, harness, shoes, belay plate. Is there anything that you think I've missed for a beginners lead rack?

Thank you for your help!
