After School Lessons
Our lessons provide multi-level programs designed to develop and maintain interest and participation in rock climbing. From climbing technique in top rope and bouldering to safety, proper belaying skills, harnessing, knots, and rope care - your children can learn all aspects of climbing.
Another big focus of lessons are the aspects of co-operation, responsibility and leadership as well as individual dedication, confidence, trust, and self-esteem. We work to provide a positive environment in which the desire for self-improvement and achievement of goals motivates the individual to develop their natural abilities and help others do likewise.
