Belaying Clinic | March 5th and 7th
In February, our Introduction to Belaying clinic got off to a great start. If you missed it, be sure sign to up in March! One of the program participants, Katelyn Rendulic, shared “I highly recommend the belay clinic to individuals looking for more experience at the Rock Wall. The instructors were well prepared and taught the course with an easy to follow, hands-on approach. I’m excited to bring more friends to the wall!”
On March 5th and 7th from 9:10 to 10:10 pm, be ready to learn proper belaying and climbing skills, bouldering safety, and knot tying techniques. At the end, all participants will be given the opportunity to take a belay test in order to belay other climbers and patrons. Remember, it’s FREE!
