A self belaying group is the equivalent to purchasing a day pass and rental gear for an individual, and is a no frills discounted event with no assistance from Central Rock Gym staff. This event type is for groups of 10 or more, who will not require any staff to assist with rope setups. The event does not include: staff belaying, instruction for select new belayers, or refreshers for previously trained or otherwise experienced belayers. All Self Belaying groups must exactly meet one of the listed options as well as other strict criteria to ensure a safe and smooth climbing experience for all. Please read clearly to avoid any additional charges for your event.
