 Climbing Wall Schedule – Fall 2014

Introduction to Climbing Lesson – Ages 12+
This 1.75hr course will teach you basic climbing skills in a safe and controlled environment. You will learn to properly and safely put on your harness, tie the “double figure 8 knot” learn “checks and calls”, and learn to belay someone, which allows you to come to Drop In (belay checks are FREE!). Bring a pair of indoor / gym shoes or rent a pair of climbing shoes from us. Everyone under the age of 19 must have their parent or legal guardian sign a waiver before they can climb.
Note: we need a minimum of 2 registrants or we may have to cancel the class, so register early!
