Introductory Top Rope (Belay) lesson
Top Rope climbing (where the rope is anchored through a point at the top of the climb) is the traditional version of indoor climbing that most people associate with the sport. With anchors always above you, you have a fixed system that allows you to safely climb and try climbs, while someone holds and works the rope to arrest falls and safely lower you back to the ground; this process is called belaying. The skills required to do this independently are not difficult, but require careful instruction and practice to properly master.
- Instruction up to 2 hours. Includes climbing shoes, harness and a day pass!
Offered to those 13 or older.
