Program Description

Minimum age to take the belay course is 14.

No experience is required to climb on our bouldering walls or autobelays.  If you want to use our roped climbs, you will have to pass our belay test or take our belay course.  

At Spirit Rock, if you already know how to belay, your belay test is free.  

The top rope belay course covers: tying in to the rope, proper use of a belay device and safe communication skills.

The belay course is $24+tax and takes approximately 45 minutes.

This course can be delivered on a drop-in basis depending on how busy the gym is.

*If you don’t know what belaying is, read on:

 “Belaying refers to a variety of techniques climbers use to exert tension on a climbing rope so that a falling climber does not fall very far.[1] A climbing partner typically applies tension at the other end of the rope whenever the climber is not moving, and removes the tension from the rope whenever the climber needs more rope to continue climbing.” - Wikipedia
