Climbing and belaying require a high level of trust and communication and learning to belay offers a unique bonding experience for participants of a Belay Certification event. Alaska Rock Gym instructors teach participants all the skills needed to provide a secure belay (control of the rope on which the climber ascends). Students have lots of time to absorb and practice the skill set with the close supervision of their instructors, then test for their Top Rope Belay Certification. Upon completion, participants have the opportunity to use the facility at their own pace, without the assistance of the belay instruction staff.
