April 3 and 10, 6:00-9:00PM

This is a short introduction to climbing.

We cover
Gear: harness, shoes, helmet, belay device, carabiners, safety leash
Belay technique: brake-under-slide
Belay stance
Climbing/Belay signals
Top rope climbing technique
Foot placement
Butterfly Coil
Tech School web access

This class is a prerequisite for
Intermediate Rock Climbing
Technical Snow
Beginning Ice Climbing

We provide all equipment but you are free to bring your own. We recommend a pair of gloves. You can buy gloves made especially for belaying if you like, but a cheap pair of gloves from a hardware store are fine.

This class covers more than simple belay technique. In later classes we assume all students are familiar with all elements of prerequisite classes.


Note that classes sometimes show "Sessions"; Basic Climbing Session A, for example. Sessions are simply alternate dates of the same class. In other words, you may choose Session A or Session B, depending on which dates work best for you. You do not have to complete both Session A and Session B.

Cancellation Policy:

Classes must have minimum four students signed up and requisite number of instructors. If either number is too low class may be cancelled,

Refund Policy:

Student/Participant requests for refunds of tuition/fees must be requested in writing (e-mail) to the appropriate school or event director. Requests made prior to 30 days before the beginning of the school/event will be processed less a $10 handling fee. Requests made within 30 days of the school/event will be refunded at 50% of the amount paid. No refunds will be made after the beginning of the school/event. However, a refund less $10 can be obtained if a person is found to take the original student’s place in a school.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
