We offer semi-private climbing lessons to individuals who want to learn to climb or improve their technique through personalized instruction and training. One hour lessons are $20 per person. Lessons may be scheduled year-round. Register below.
Groups can also sign up for weekly lessons (typically 4-6 week sessions) to learn climbing and belaying skills as part of a gym class, team, or simple to stay fit! Please see our events page for the registration form and rates.
All climbers interested in belaying are strongly encouraged to take our belay class, whether they are brand new belayers or experienced climbers in need of a refresher. The class runs approximately 2 hours depending on the experience of the participants. Topics include equipment inspection and use, 10-point safety check, local operating procedures, rock gym policies, and brake-ready belay technique. Cost is $10 per person which covers the course, supervised practice as needed, and the belay test. Belay tests typically happen a week or more after the initial class, depending on experience. Participants must be at least 14 years old to belay.
Experienced belayers who are competent in the brake-ready belay method may opt to take the belay test during open gym instead of attending the class. The cost is $10 and includes an orientation to belaying in our facility and a practical test.
