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.
