Core & Strength Training Class
Jul 19 @ 6:30 am – 7:30 am

The class will utilize kettlebells and bodyweight to deliver a powerful combination of exercises that will build lean muscle, burn fat, and strengthen your core. The hour will be separated into three parts: warm-up, proper mobility and positioning, and moderate intensity to high volume exercises. This class is perfect for the beginner but can be modified to the individual’s needs, should they feel too challenged or not challenged enough.

Climbing in Overhangs
Jul 19 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

The Climbing in Overhangs clinic is designed to help climbers move their skills to steeper walls. Do you find yourself struggling on the same grades in roofs more than you do on vertical walls? This class is for you! We will take you through some new techniques and movement styles to help you overcome those overhangs. Climbers are recommended to have completed some 5.8 or V0 climbs. All instruction will take place in the bouldering area, but skills and techniques learned will apply to your roped climbing. Participants must be 14 years of age or older.

This clinic is free for members.
$10 for non-members (day pass and rental gear not included)

Registration is required as space is limited! Register HERE.

Belay Class

In the Basic Belay Class you will work with our instructor and learn the technique of belaying. After taking the class and before your first time climbing, you will be required to take a belay test showing the staff that you have retained all the information and skills necessary. Taking this class and successfully passing the belay test will enable you to belay climbers in the gym.
This course takes approximately an hour and a half. Rental harness and shoes are provided in course fee if needed.

Knot craft and harness tie-in

$50 for class with a 1-week membership included – this great deal begins the day you take your belay class. All the benefits to being a member are included; you can come take one of our many instructional or fitness classes, not to mention coming back to climb as many times as you’d like within the 1 week time frame. When you return to become belay verified bring a friend! You get 1 free guest pass (rental gear included) with the 1-week membership, so when you test out you now have a climbing partner you can belay!

Scheduling:
1st and 3rd Wednesday 12:30 pm
Thursday 7 pm
Saturday/Sunday 4 pm

Be aware: It is really hard to teach someone how to belay without a person at the other end of the rope. The River Rock can’t provide you a climber to take the belay class. The instructor will be on the ground working with the belay class. If there is more than one person in the class, no problem. The class participants can climb for each other.
If you are the only person registered you will need to provide a climber. We will not charge for your climber during the class time and will provide them with all of the equipment necessary. Contact the gym if you have any questions (540) 685-2360.
