Do you want to learn more skills on how to belay? We offer 2 clinics currently being held Fall Semester on Tuesday nights at the Indoor Rock Wall within Myers Field House:

  • 7:00pm-8:00pm Introduction to Belaying and Ropework
  • This Class is for climbers who are new to the sport. Climbers will work on proper knot tying, equipment usage and belay techniques. Course is 1 hour in length.

  • 8:15pm-10:00pm Introduction to Lead Climbing and Lead Belaying*
  • This class will give climbers foundations of becoming a Lead Climber and Lead Belayer. Climbers will be instructed on ropework, climbing, gear and risk management of Lead Climbing. Climbers must be able to climb 5.9 (Yosemite Decimal System) comfortably to take class.

    *Participants need to be top rope belay certified before signing up for a Lead Climbing & Lead Belay Clinic.  Top rope & Lead clinics cannot be competed in the same week.
