With an emphasis on personal responsibility and the safety checks that we require at all our gyms, this class is highly recommended for first timers as well as a helpful refresher if it's been a while since you belayed with an ATC. The cost includes all necessary rental gear, an hour of instruction, and a day pass to the gym so you and your friends can practice your new skills for the rest of the day.

INTRO TO LEADING
Ready to take your climbing to the next level? Lead climbing is an exciting and challenging way to push yourself both mentally and physically as a climber. In this hands-on class you'll learn about proper footwork, rope management, and efficient climbing techniques. The instructor will also teach safe lead belaying techniques and all participants will have the chance to take and catch a lead fall. While this class is not required, it is a highly encouraged starting point to practicing for your lead test in our gyms. Participants of all climbing abilities may join, but we recommend that you can comfortably climb 5.10b and already have a permanent top rope belay card. You will need to bring your own rope.
INTRO TO BOULDERING
Let us show you how to climb only a few feet off the ground with no gear to fuss with but shoes and maybe a chalk bag! In this class you will learn footwork, body positioning, hand technique, as well as all the fun bouldering lingo to help you understand the culture of this growing sport. This class is great for beginners and moderate climbers!

Just getting started? Taken the ICC and feeling ready for a little more specific instruction? This is the perfect place for beginners or if you have been top roping for a while but hit that dreaded 'plateau'. The instructor will tailor the class to the participants and offer technique adjustments that help you whether you climb 5.9 or 5.11. Participants should already know how to belay to get the most out of the class.
