Getting Into It Introductory Course
The Getting Into It is your introduction to the exciting sport of indoor climbing. Our excellent instructors will set you up with all of the equipment, keep you under a watchful eye, and challenge you on our sculpted walls!
This 3-hour program is for new climbers ages 14 and up. It presents all the information necessary to get you started in the sport of indoor rock climbing! The course introduces new climbers to the facility and teaches the basics of the Top Rope systems including belaying (controlling the rope at the bottom for the climber), the figure eight follow through knot (used to secure the climber while they climb) and all the appropriate safety checks.
$65 + GST. Included with this course: a free week pass and a complimentary belay check
The Getting Into It must be pre-booked and runs from 7-10pm every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and Saturday mornings from 10am-1pm. Can also be booked at other times for larger groups
The Getting Into It is available to participants age 14 and up and to participants age 12-13 if their parent is also in the program. All participants must have a signed waiver. For those under 18 years of age, they must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.
Participants are suggested to wear comfortable clothing that they can move around in. Layers are also a great idea. Everyone must wear socks in the rental shoes.
Note: The Getting Into It is a certification preparation program. Following the course participants are ready to complete a Top Rope Belay Check which will allow them to access all top ropes in the facility without further supervision. Climbers can then also take advantage of Vertically Inclined's Punch and Multi-Visit Passes!
