Always wanted to learn how to climb? Get certified to belay, learn the safety systems of belaying, basic knot tying, and basic climbing movement in this hands-on class. Climbing is great exercise, social and totally a lot of fun! This course is designed for people with little or no climbing experience, this course teaches the skills needed to climb independently at any rock climbing facility. Or, if you need a refresher. Once we go through the skills - then we go and climb!! All equipment is included! DATE: Wednesday, August 25th, 7:00pm-8:30pm COST: $31/pp (non-refundable). Only 12 spots. Must be paid to RSVP via Amazon payments! You can still join in for regular climbing if you are certified to belay. Must be able to pass belay test!



For those that are already experienced climbers -- feel free to meet us out there and do some climbing while we take the course! However, pay at the site. For those taking the private class it is paid in advance only!!


*Parking at Sportrock can be difficult so make sure to give yourself enough time to find alternate partking. Or, the even is also metro accessible from Van Dorn Metro Station. If you can offer a ride - please do so! However, after 6pm - you can park in any of the parking slots in the parking area (even it belongs to a different company). CARPOOL: Don’t forget if you want a ride or are willing to offer a ride – be a friend to the environment, save money, and make friends by just posting a message!!

    Very instructive course. Could have covered a few more things but overall I felt very comfortable.

    The class was very thorough for the short amount time. They didn't cover rappelling, anchoring using anchors/hands, and other things I forgot from my intro to outdoor climbing. A smaller group would have been better.

    Only complaint is that class size being smaller would have been better. Class ended up running late (until 10) with most folks only getting one chance to climb and once chance to belay. :(
    Felt a little rushed as the last climber in my group.

    One reason I wanted to do this intro to climbing was to join the group that climbs there every Tuesday and Thursday. I'll post the information as soon as possible. Here is the link to the place, http://www.sportrock.com/ to find out the membership rates.

    I am hoping to host another intro to rock climbing next month so stay tuned. Plus, I had fun bouldering and i'm also trying to get that going on next month.

    Any suggestions to hangout after the event to grab something to eat and drink? We can do Mango Mike's again, but if anyone know a better place nearby let us know.
