INTRO TO GYM CLIMBING / BELAY CERTIFICATION CLASS
“Intro to Gym Climbing” classes are held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evenings from 7-9pm, and Saturday afternoons from 1-3pm. This group class is the entry portal to the world of indoor climbing at the Alaska Rock Gym. Minimum age for participation is 14 years. The curriculum includes an orientation to the routes on the wall, basic climbing movement, gym etiquette, belay skills and a bouldering orientation. At the end of the class, most participants are belay certified and able to boulder, climb and top-rope belay in the gym. On line registration and payment in advance of the date of the class is recommended, as is executing and submitting the Alaska Rock Gym liability waiver. Getting the waiver done in advance really speeds things up on the day of the class!
