Private Lessons & Climbing Courses

By: Climbing Gym  09-12-2011

(Reservations required at least 48 hours in advance)

Two hour private lessons are the best way to get started or to improve your technique. If it's your first visit to the gym, we'll include equipment rentals (harness, climbing shoes and chalk bag) free of charge. Otherwise, equipment rentals are available with your lesson at 1/2 of the regular price. Admission is included with the cost of the lesson so you can stay and climb as long as you like after your lesson is done. Choose between our private Introduction to Climbing Lesson or our Technique Lesson:

Introduction to Climbing

Learn to climb properly from the start and avoid developing bad habits that are hard to break later! Lesson includes: footwork, balance & weight shifting, hold and climbing styles, bouldering, top-roping and loads of technique. Those 14 and older will also learn to belay.

Technique Lesson

This is the one to take if you know the basics and you've been climbing for a while. If you feel you've hit 'the plateau', spend a couple of hours with one of our instructors. They'll help you improve your technique, flexibility and strength and they'll give you drills and tips you can work on by yourself later.

If the participants in your group are younger than 14, we ask that you bring at least one adult (or person over the age of 14) for every 4 climbers in your group. There is no charge for those who are belaying only and not climbing, however, the number of belayers cannot exceed the number of paying climbers.


Adult Programs - Boiler Room

Gym members who complete all five sessions will be invited to route setting sessions at the gym where they can design their own routes under the staff's supervision. Sessions 4 and 5 are practical sessions where participants apply the skills they learned, and recieve instant feedback on the routes they are desiging.
