    Yes u can climb after course is over. They will need to be belay certified which includes passing belay test. Or, I've seen people just sit back and watch the class. But that's not real exciting. :)

    Can friends who aren't in the meetup group tag along if they're just going to climb without taking the basic skills course? Also, are we able to spend time climbing after the course is over?

    Absolutely. This is a skills class. It teaches you how to tie your knots and be safe. You will still need to take a belay test at whatever facility (sportrock, earthtreks, etc) you go too.

    getting certified to belay here - is this something we can carry over to other rock climbing facilities like earth treks in rockville?
