Our Full Access Package includes the safety/belay course, climbing pass for the day, and complete gear rental (harness, shoes, and chalk). After successfully completing the orientation & training, participants will have unlimited climbing for the remainder of the business day on all 26 top-rope and 7 auto-belay stations as well as on the bouldering area. This package is best for climbers who want to build a basic foundation of knowledge about indoor climbing, and want access to the auto belay, top rope, and bouldering areas. Participants must be 12 or older to use the boulder area.

The safety/belay course consists of an orientation training video followed by a hands-on practice session facilitated by our staff. The course takes approximately 45 - 60 minutes and is offered Monday - Friday at 1:00pm, 3:00pm, 5:00pm, and 7:00pm and Saturdays at 11:00am, 1:00pm, 3:00pm, and 5:00pm. Climbers must be 12 or older to learn to belay for other climbers.

SAFETY/BELAY COURSE

The Safety/Belay Course is required for all participants who wish to use the top rope stations, and is included in each climber's Full Access Package (above). This course is also available for parents that do not want to climb, but would like to participate with their children and manage their ropes. Once completed, there is never a charge for parents to just belay and not climb (provided they stay "current" on belay skills by coming in at least every 6 months). Participants must be at least 12 years old to belay other climbers. Course takes approximately 45 - 60 minutes and is offered Monday - Friday at 1:00pm, 3:00pm, 5:00pm, and 7:00pm and Saturdays at 11:00am, 1:00pm, 3:00pm, and 5:00pm.
