A few people had expressed an interest in getting their belay certification, so we picked NJ Rock Gym in Fairfield. I am looking to schedule us for the 10am - 12pm class on Sun 6/22. You can RSVP if you'd like to join us for the certification class (since I'll need a head count), or if you are already certified and would like to go climbing (while we are completing the class, or to meet us at 12pm) - just lmk via email or in the comments which you'll be doing. I will be calling soon to reserve a spot. Here is more specific info for the class:

Belay Certification Class

Prerequisite: Must be 15yrs. or older; No experience necessary

Includes:One Free Week Admission, plus Gear

Cost: $40.00

This class is designed for those who have had no prior climbing and/or belaying experience. Students will learn the basic skills to get them started climbing indoors on top-rope including gym etiquette, harness use, knot tying, commands, belaying and lowering. After completion of this class, students will be prepared for NJRG's Top-Rope Certification Test.

Class Includes: Gear Rental, lesson, and pass to climb for the balance of the day.

Class Schedule: Mondays and Wednesdays (7:00pm-9:00pm), Saturdays and Sundays (10:00am - 12:00pm; 1:00pm-3:00pm)

Class Time: 1 ½ - 2 hours, depending on number of students.

To reserve: Pre-payment is necessary to reserve your spot. We require 48 hour notice to cancel or to reschedule. Failure to do so will lead to a loss of program fee.

Student/Instructor ratio: 4 to 1.

    I'm not certified and this sounds like a great opportunity!

    This sounds like a lot of fun, but I wouldn't be able to do 10 a.m. to noon. :(
