Top-Rope Belaying

Top-rope climbing is a two person activity. While one person climbs, their partner will manage the rope and a belay device to keep them from falling. We offer Belay classes throughout all of our open hours until the hour before closing. No reservation is required. Top-Rope Belay Classes are $10 per person. 

Lead Climbing

Lead Climbing is an advanced style of climbing where a climber will place their own protection as they advance up the wall. RocVentures requires that a climber competently climb 5.9 grade top-rope climbs before taking a Lead Climbing Class. To schedule for a Lead Climbing Class click here. Price for non-members is $75 and $60 for members. Classes run approximately 3 hours in length. If you are unable to make a scheduled class, we also offer private classes to groups of 3 or more. To schedule a private class please contact
