Come by our wall anytime we are open and our friendly, knowledgeable staff can teach you belaying skills. That way you and your friends can belay each other, not need to wait for a staff member to belay for you. We are also here to give you pointers about top rope climbing and bouldering techniques. If you really want to push yourself to the next level, sign up for one of our climbing trips. You will be able to put that practice to work on some real rock!
