Why is an Introductory Lesson so Important?
For those who have not climbed or belayed before, the 1 Hour Introductory Lesson ensures that you will be taught the fundamental skills needed to climb safely: How to put on a climbing harness, tie into a climbing rope with a figure-8 follow-through and keeper knot, and how to properly operate the belay device (“Gri Gri”).
Please Note: Those who take the Introductory Lesson will be given a Belay Test on their next visit to the gym, to show that they have retained what they learned. Our lessons prepare climbers to safely climb and belay indoors in our facility. Those interested in climbing outdoors will need further instruction. We strongly recommend hiring a properly-accredited professional outdoor climbing instructor to learn the additional skills needed to climb safely outdoors!
