INDOOR CLIMBING SCHOOL
You have made the first step and literally stepped into the climbing gym to check out rock climbing; you have received the bouldering and auto belay orientation. Can we say you rock? But now you see athletes scaling the walls with ropes attached to the walls, some move with their own rope from the ground, you hear climbers shouting “hey dude, give me slack,” “take up,” or “what is the beta on that climb” and you are getting curious. Yes, there is so much more you can do in the gym and we can satisfy your curiosity and assist your progress through the many stages of climbing through classes led by our experienced instructors.
Choose to deepen your skills or add a new one to your climbing repertoire by talking one of the semi-private workshops designed to give you the edge you need for your next project. Progress in climbing is gradual and hard earned, but is sweet when you reach new heights! Give yourself a high five – you have earned it.
This class will introduce the novice climber to top rope belaying and teaches the skills required to climb with a partner in the gym. Climbers will learn how to put on a climbing harness, tie into a climbing rope, and proper belay skills. After learning the basics, climbers are welcome to stay and continue climbing. This class typically lasts 1.75 hours. Minimum age to participate is 14.
