Belay Class
Oct 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

 

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 gear and day pass are not included in class fee.
Course Prerequisite: participants must be at least 14 years old

Only 4 participants per class. Sign up for it HERE!

Course topics:
Knot craft and harness tie-in
BUS Belay method
Rope management

Arresting a fall
Lowering a climber
Basic climbing technique

Pricing:
FREE – River Rock Members
$20 non-members

Scheduling:
Wednesdays 7:30pm-9pm

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.
