Self Belayed Group Package

For those troops with Leaders experienced in climbing. You provide the belayers, we will supply the walls and equipment. This package is meant for troops that have leaders who have been climbing before or have belay experience. 

If you have not been to our facility it is recommended that your leaders visit before your scheduled group to go through either a belay test for certification (free) at our gym , or take a one hour belay course. For those leaders that do not know how to belay we have two options, either learning during the group, which will be $30 per person, or if you schedule for a night before the group you will have an even bigger discount of $15 per person. We recommend (but not required) that all leaders take the lesson together whether during the Group or on a different night together
