Courses

Belay Course – $75 adult

 

During this course we will teach you all the skills necessary to begin climbing on your own. We cover how to put on your harness, tie the proper knots and manage the rope belay systems. By the end of the course, you’ll be all over the walls and climbing with confidence. Each course includes equipment for the lesson.
Instructors are certified through the A.C.M.G (Association of Canadian Mountain Guides).

 

Minimum age 13 years. Maximum group size 4. This course does not qualify you to set up climbs outdoors. We suggest you seek further instruction before heading out to the crags.

Belay Course Package – $170

 

Participate in a guided belay course where upon completion you receive a 1 month membership with gear rental included so that you can pratice the skills which you have learned. A great way to firmly cement the techniques in your mind and take your first steps to being a safe and competent climber.

Learn the fundamentals of lead climbing from a skilled instructor. Lead belaying, proper rope management and clipping technique are just some of the topics which will be covered in this comprehensive course.
