This beginner lesson is designed as an introduction to the exciting sport of rock climbing. The lesson covers knot tying, belaying, rope management skills, the use of technical equipment and climbing commands. Emphasis is placed on the skills needed to climb and belay in a controlled environment. Ages 14+

Prerequisites: Some climbing experience recommended – this lesson is not an introduction to climbing technique

As a recreational climber who has the mechanical skills needed to top rope climb, your next step is to learn proper techniques to maximize your performance on the wall. Clinics will discuss footwork, body positioning, resting, route reading and more, based on students’ individual needs. These techniques will advance your climbing level by enabling you to conserve your strength and climb more efficiently.

Prerequisites: None

Learn to climb on the sharp end. If your only experiences include top rope climbing/bouldering, this is the course for you. This lesson will introduce the climber to leading sport routes. Topics include the art of controlled and efficient lead belaying, how to clip protection, lead climbing techniques, the art of falling and how to catch a fall. Ages 16+

Prerequisites: Climb at or above 5.9 and qualified to top rope belay at Vertical Endeavors

This lesson is designed to make climbing a fun activity for your family. Parents learn to belay while your children climb! This introduction to indoor climbing includes learning belay commands, knot tying and basic climbing instruction. Parents are taught the skills needed to belay for their children and climb on their own.

Prerequisites: None

Have you reached a plateau? Feel like you’re not advancing? Are you frustrated with your efforts? Private lessons will provide the direction, structure and content to refine your climbing skills. Customized lesson topics range from training and stretching to advanced movement techniques and crack climbing. Improve your climbing skills by reserving time for a private lesson. Rentals included.

Prerequisites: None

1–2 People: $50/hr
Each Additional Person: $25/hr

NOTE: We must have a minimum of six participants to run each lesson. Lessons may run short depending on class size. Registration is first come, first serve.

Students may stay after class to continue climbing at the instructor’s discretion.
