Rock Climbing

Intro to Rock Climbing

Dig into the basics of indoor rock climbing and learn the “ropes” on our 32 foot indoor climbing wall! We’ll work on skills including safety, harnessing, knots, top rope climbing, bouldering, and more! Every week, we will learn something new and challenge our skills, with an emphasis on movement, technique, safety, trust and teamwork. Be sure to wear comfortable gym clothes and shoes, and bring a water bottle. Meet at the climbing wall in the lower level of the Schlossman YMCA. Parents may watch from the windows located across from the Schlossman Member Services desk. Parents/guardians must sign a climbing waiver for each participant.

Intro to Belay

This 75-minute class gives you an introduction to the basic skills needed to safely enjoy climbing and belaying on your own at the YMCA. Each participant will learn how to safely control the ropes for their partner, how to tie safe climbing knots, and how to communicate commands effectively. Following this one-time class, participants wait a minimum of 24 hours, and then come back in to take the top-rope belay certification test with a climbing wall staff. Drop-ins are welcome, however, but please be aware that classes may already be full or may not be held due to a holiday or rental.
