This is a super beginner climbing trip in which you will learn fundamental skills needed to climb safely. After this trip you should be able to pass the belay test at Peak (the climbing gym in richmond).

I am going to focus on teaching rather than climbing. The wall we are going to has two routes and both are very mediocre. That’s why we are only going for at most three hours. Also, I’m watching polo and getting drunk at 1 and you probably have homework – nerd. Anyways, I will post more climbing focused trips in the future.

Things you will learn:
– how to top rope belay
– how to tie a figure 8 knot
– basic climbing commands and jargon

Things you bring:
climbing shoes
climbing harness
atc and locker – (talk with whoever is leading gear room if you don’t know what that is)

Things I bring:
-a few helmets
-dynamic ropes
-first aid kit
– grigris
– quickdraws
– other things i’m probably forgetting

If you want to do some extra credit before this, maybe watch a youtube video about top rope belaying. Just so you have some idea what to expect.

I reserve the right to “ground” anyone who I think is being unsafe with or without warning. If you have questions about safe climbing practices please email me or the officers. This is a beginner trip so we will start with basic safety tips.
