Belay & Safety Instruction
Once you decide you are ready to try indoor rock climbing, you will need to know a few things about the process at Urban Ascent. For every person using our roped routes, they will need a partner on the ground managing the ropes for the climbers safety (belay). We offer belay lessons every day at the time of your visit that take about 15-20 minutes. If you are already trained to belay all you need to do is pass our belay check-it’s free.
*Urban Ascent requires all belayers to be at least 13 years of age
*Belay lesson: $5
Kids Climbing At Urban Ascent
If your child wants to climb at Urban Ascent, the same procedure applies as explained above. If your child wants to climb in the ropes area, he/she must have a belayer. Usually, the belayer is a parent, but can be a sibling or friend as long as they are 13 years of age and trained to belay. Kids and adults can boulder in the gym without a belayer, as no ropes are used in the bouldering area.
VERY IMPORTANT. All participants MUST sign a Urban Ascent liability waiver before they can participate in any activities at Urban Ascent. Climbers under the age of 18 must have a waiver completed by their parent or a (court ordered legal guardian). The online waiver can be filled out here.
Lessons are scheduled by appointment only and are $60 per person per hour. Please forward inquires to firstname.lastname@example.org or.
