Intro to Rope Climbing at CityROCK

This 2-hour long class is designed for those climbers who want to learn more about the top-rope belay technique and the gear involved in this process. A portion of this class is dedicated to the basics of climbing movement for an efficient progression on the wall. Gym etiquette and climbing terminology are also covered.

To get belay-certified, come back the next day (at least 24 hours) or whenever convenient, to test out and show us that what you learned stuck! If you are interested in just learning how to properly belay then check out our belay lessons.

You will learn how to:

  • Tie the figure-8 knot and use the ATC
  • Perform a buddy check and commands
  • Belay correctly following the industry standards
  • Climbing terminology and gym etiquette
  • Basic climbing techniques to move efficiently on the wall
