Learn to belay so that you and your climbing partner(s) can rope climb in our facility without the need of our staff. Once completed you will be able to climb on your own for the remainder of the time our facility is open that day by purchasing a day pass and rental gear. This course is required to use the high rope walls without reserved staff assistance in advance.  If you are interested in climbing with friends, family, or children this is a great way to learn the basics so you can enjoy roped climbing any time on your own.

Already confident in knowing how to belay? Come in and simply take our test to test out of the class!

·         This class typically takes an hour and teaches knots, the belay process, and safety procedures at the gym.

·         The class will start promptly at 6 pm and will be capped at 10 people (no exceptions), so please show up early to fill out waiver, and get setup with equipment. We cannot guarantee a delayed start for those who arrive late. A room will be available to meet and greet, have a snack, etc.

·         Must be age 13+ to take the class (under 13 may still climb while belayed by a certified belayer)

·         You must pre-register to guarantee a spot, as it fills up quickly. Adults who wish to participate should register with GSWNY but will pay the $20 fee to the gym directly on the day of the event. Event is free for girls. Adults who attend to meet the required girl/adult ratio but not participate in the class are free and should not register themselves.
