NEW TO CLIMBING?
If you are a new climber or have a few sessions under your belt, we’ve got you. Our Intro to Bouldering or Intro to Climbing Classes are perfect for beginners.
Intro to Climbing Class
In this one-hour class, you will learn the basic skills needed to start rope climbing: how to secure your harness, tie a figure 8 follow through knot and complete your safety checks. You will also learn how to belay using an ATC belay device, catch a fall and lower your climber back to the ground. After the class, use your newfound skills and climb until your arms give out!
- This class is required for anyone who has not belayed before or who cannot pass our belay test without assistance.
- All participants must be 14 or older.
Intro to Bouldering Class
In this class, you will get a great overview of safety practices, the layout of the gym, bouldering etiquette and basic technique! This class is free to members and included in the day pass for non-members. Be sure to show up at least 15 minutes before the class starts. The class is usually 30 minutes long but it can sometimes run longer.
