Intro to Climbing

Are you interested in climbing for the first time?

This course is designed for beginners that are looking to take the first steps to get into rock climbing. At the end of the course you will gain practical knowledge of:

  • Equipment: use of a harness and belay device
  • Knots: tying in with a figure 8 follow-through and a fisherman's backup
  • Belaying: locking carabiners and ATC use
  • Commands: communicate with your climbing partner
  • After taking this course, most students can 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.
