Classes & Lessons

Indoor Climbing lessons

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 $25 for a private lesson and $20 per person for a semi-private lesson. We do not accept more than four participants in a semi-private lesson. Lessons may be scheduled year-round and are based on instructor availability. 

Please fill out the lesson request form below if you would like to sign up for lessons. 

Belay Classes 

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.

The 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. Please visit the Rock Gym during Open GYm hours to sign up. Belay classes will be offered monthly based on the sign up list. 

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.
