Intro To Rope Climbing Class

This class is designed for folks with little or no climbing experience who want to use our top ropes. It teaches the basic skills needed to top rope climb: securing your harness, climbing commands, safety checks and belay, i.e., managing the rope while your partner is climbing to protect them from a fall. We also can show you around the bouldering section where most of our members climb. After successfully completing this course, students are able to climb independently at Active Climbing.

Cost: Free for members /$25 non-members
Duration: 30 min - 1 hour
Prerequisites: None
Age requirement to belay: 14 years of age and over
Age requirement to climb: None
Includes: Rental equipment and day pass.


Unlike top rope climbing, which requires a rope and harness, bouldering is climbing stripped down to the essentials. Here at Active Climbing, all you’ll need is a pair of climbing shoes and a chalk bag. Our boulder routes are designed for climbers at every skill level with short, challenging problems. Additionally, safety mats are placed beneath all of our bouldering walls to help keep climbers safe.


When bouldering at Active Climbing, please keep these tips in mind for a fun, safe bouldering practice:

  • Use balance, technique, strength and your brain when bouldering

  • Plan ahead as you climb

  • Do not climb or run underneath someone who is climbing

  • Be mindful of those climbing around you

  • Warm up and cool down on routes that are below your skill level

  • Challenge yourself
