This class is designed to teach teens how to belay, clip in on Auto-belays, climbing safety techniques, basic movement techniques, bouldering and much more.

Each class is an hour long and will provide you with all of the information you will need to know for top-roping! Starting with the correct knot to tie in and progressing to the correct belay technique, you will be sure to feel like a pro when you finish your class!
