ROCK CLIMBING EXPERIENCE
This three-hour class begins with “ground school”, in which you climb close to the ground and learn how to belay, use precision footwork, refine balance, transfer weight and use rock features (hand and foot holds). We explain rock climbing equipment, the figure 8 knot, belaying (a climber’s safety system), and we describe rock climbing terms.
Most of the time you will practice belaying/lowering and climbing skills on top-rope protected climbs up to 30m. You can go up and down many times! This class is a great introduction to the fundamentals of climbing. Learning to climb in a place with incredible natural beauty makes for an unforgettable experience.
