This intro belay class will teach you how to properly rope climb in our facility. For those who have never belayed before, who do not remember how to properly belay, or how to tie in, this class will teach you the basics so you can enjoy rope climbing in our gym(s) without booking a staff member for assistance.
If you’re already confident in knowing how to belay, you do not need to take this class and can instead demonstrate your skills to a staff member and test out of the class.
- This class typically takes 1.5 hours and teaches knots, the belay process, and safety procedures at the gym.
- The class will start promptly at the specified time and will be capped at 6 people (no exceptions).
- Please show up 15 minutes early to fill out waiver, pay and get setup with equipment. We cannot guarantee a delayed start for those who arrive late regardless of pre-payment.
- Must be age 13+ to take the class (under 13 may still climb while belayed by a certified belayer)
- Once completed you will be able to climb on your own for the remainder of the time our facility is open that day. This class does not certify you to belay and will test out next time
