Getting Into It 3 Hour Session
The Getting Into It course is designed to get your students to the point of being able to come back into the facility on their own. Over three hours, participants will learn all the information needed to pass the VIRG belay check. They will have literally “learned the ropes!”
This means instruction on putting on a climbing approved harness, learning how to belay (manage the ropes), tie the figure-Eight follow through knot, and a technique tip or two. The course includes all the necessary equipment and of course our expert instructors to facilitate your visit. The Getting Into It, a very popular program with the public, can be scheduled in single or multiple sessions to fit your classtime constraints!
