Introductory Classes

Are you interested in climbing for the first time? Has it been a while since you have last climbed and are you looking for a refresher? This course is designed for beginners that are looking to take the first steps to get into rock climbing. We will teach you:

  • Equipment: how to use a harness and belay device
  • Knots: tying in with a figure 8 follow-through, plus a fisherman's backup
  • Belaying: using a locking carabiner and ATC to confidently keep your climbing partner safe
  • Commands: how to communicate with your climbing partner
  • After taking this course, most students can safely pass the MetroRock belay check, necessary to climb in the gym

Courses can be arranged outside of normal schedule any day with advance notice, please contact us for scheduling.  Group pricing is also avaliable.
