Intro to Lead Gym Climbing We’ll teach you safe and efficient lead belaying and climbing techniques, as well as clip protection. After practicing lead climbing with a top-rope backup, we’ll get you on the “sharp end.” You will learn the process of a dynamic belay and experience lead climbing without a top-rope backup. You will practice taking and catching real lead falls and learn how to do it safely. A lead endorsement test will be required (by appointment only) at a later date (at least one week after) before you are endorsed to lead climb at The Rock. Outside of the series, this clinic is $20/session. Session I April 19 and 26 Wednesday, 6:00pm - 8:00pm

AUTO BELAY The auto-belay at The Rock gives you the opportunity to climb during non-rope hours or to climb as much as you want during roped hours. This auto-belay uses centripetal force to lower you safely to the ground once you reach the top. All routes that are green tagged can be climbed on the auto-belay. You must get certified by a ROCK staff in order to climb during non-roped hours. Auto-belay hours are from 11:00am until the SRC closes every day.

CHALLENGE COURSE Through carefully designed and led activities, individuals and teams explore communication, group dynamics, confidence, decision-making, team spirit, trust, cooperation, motivation, creativity, conflict resolution, diversity and feedback. We accomplish this by creating a physically and emotionally safe environment in which individuals and teams are free to step outside of their comfort zone and take a risk. Another key element to our program is fun! We believe the team that plays together stays together, and people are much more willing to learn when fun is involved. Group Type
