Top Rope Belay Class

Wed, Oct 18  |  6:00 PM - 7:30 PM  |  Central Rock

Central Rock is now offering Top Rope belay classes every week!

This beginner top rope belay class will teach you how to properly rope climb in our facility. For those who have never belayed before, and who do not remember how to properly belay, or how to tie in, this class will teach you the basics so you can enjoy rope climbing in Central Rock's gym(s).
Without this class, participants will be limited to using the auto belays.

Price: $50 for non-members, FREE for members (Non-members utilizing a member’s guest pass can take this class for free if it’s their first visit to Central Rock Gym.)

Time: 6-7:30PM
Where: Central Rock Arsenal Yards


Note: It is highly recommended to take this class with a partner if you are new to climbing and do not yet have climbing partners. Top rope belaying requires a minimum of two people, one to climb up the wall, and one to belay from the ground. If you are coming on your own for the class, climbing afterward will require finding someone at the gym to climb with.
