Learn to Top Rope
Our Basic Skills class will teach you the essential skills of managing the rope so you and your climbing partner can climb the tall walls at a Sportrock facility. Once you’ve got those skills down, we welcome you to stick around and practice under the supervision of your instructor. Successfully mastering the skills in this class will prepare you to pass our Top Rope Belay Test on your next visit.
