The Quick Start Program is comprised of 3 sessions.
-The first session is the Basic Skills Class where you will learn how to put on a harness, tie knots, and how to belay so you can climb safely in the gym.
-The second session is a day at the gym for you to take your belay test and practice your newly learned skills unsupervised. You can come in for the second session at your convenience.
-The third session is a technique clinic to introduce you to movement skills on the wall.
When reserving your space you will be asked to choose a day to take the Basic Skills class (first session) and then to choose a day to take the Intro to Climbing class (third session). It is recommended that you have at least one week between these 2 sessions so you will have time to come in and practice. You will not have to choose a date for the second session since this session is at your convenience.
Includes both Basic Skills and Intro to Climbing.
Our Basic Skills class will teach you the essential safety skills needed to climb at a Sportrock facility. You’ll learn to properly put on a harness, tie into the rope and belay for a partner. You will have an opportunity to practice these skills during your class, but you will not be able to belay on your own until you pass our Top Rope Belay Test. This test can be taken 24 hours after you have completed Basic Skills. To read more about Sportrock's Top Rope certification policies and procedures, please click here. Pre-registration is required.
