NEW TO CLIMBING?

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.
