Basic Skills

Want to use our facilities on your own?

Our Basic Skills class will teach you the essential skills needed to climb at a Sportrock facility. You’ll learn to properly put on a harness, tie into the rope and belay for a partner. You will have an opportunity to practice these skills during your class, but you will not be able to belay on your own until you pass our Top Rope Belay Test. This test can be taken 24 hours after you have completed Basic Skills. To read more about Sportrock's Top Rope certification policies and procedures, please click here. Pre-registration is required.

Please arrive 15 minutes early for Basic Skills in order to check-in, complete our Participant Agreement and be fitted for shoes. This helps ensure all of our classes can start and end on time. Thank you!
