Interested in learning the skills and techniques needed to pass a belay certification test and climb on your own? Vertical Rock’s Learn the Ropes class OUTDOORS is top-notch instruction. Let one of our experienced guides welcome you into the world of outdoor rock climbing and give you a solid head start by teaching you the fundamentals of top-rope rock climbing, as well as how to “tie-in” as a climber and belay safely for your partner.

These skills are the foundation of knowledge required for any future climbing pursuits. In addition to first-rate personal coaching and instruction, you will finish up the class with a period of closely supervised hands-on practice where you will have multiple opportunities to climb and belay for a partner. With instructor approval you will be permitted to continue honing the skills you’ve learned for the remainder of the day so you can confidently pass our top-rope belay test during your next visit to the gym or crag.
