What is belaying? Belaying is the term used to do the rope management for the climbers. In basic terms, taking out the slack, catching the climber and lowering them back to the ground. 

I know how to belay can I "TEST" out of the belay course? Yes. Belay tests must be done upon arrival. To pass the belay test, one must be able to correctly put on a harness, tie the figure eight knot, and properly set up and use proper belay technique with a tubular style belay device. If one fails the above requirements they must pay (take) the belay lesson or NOT belay. 

What is Toprope climbing? This is climbing with a rope that is attached at the top of the wall. A climber is tied to one end and a belayer is on the other end. Top rope climbing requires two people. 

What is Bouldering? Bouldering refers to climbing on our shorter walls that go up to 14ft. There are additional pads to help cushion a climbers fall. Bouldering is a great way to learn climbing movement and offers a great challenge.
