The Learn to Climb
course is a comprehensive introduction to indoor climbing. It starts with the same material included in the Basic Top Rope Climber course, but adds technique, supervised climbing practice, and personalized feedback on each student’s climbing skills. We also provide you with the understanding of our grading systems and the different types of climbing that you can do in the gym.
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
Bouldering: have fun staying close to the ground
Technique: using balance, flexibility, and strength to move up a face
After taking this course, most students can safely pass the MetroRock belay check, necessary to climb in the gym
