101 - Intro to Climbing and Belaying


Climbing 101 program is designed to get adults and teens on the walls and climbing immediately! No previous climbing experience is necessary. If you’ve never tried climbing and wonder what it’s all about, Climbing 101 is for you. In addition to basic climbing skills you’ll get comfortable on the wall and learn the lingo, knots, and all the skills you need to pass the TRC belay test.  After this class you’ll be able to continue climbing and belaying the rest of the day. On your next visit you’ll be able to take your belay test to become a certified belayer.
