Weekend Belaying Class for Parents

Ensure you child's safety while rock climbing by learning how to belay properly.

The La Vida Rock Gym invites parents to learn how to belay! Belaying refers to a variety of techniques used in climbing to exert friction on a climbing rope to ensure the safety of the climber and to ensure that  a falling climber does not fall very far. If you have a child interested in rock climbing and find yourself nervously watching as your child climbs, take this course!  It will enable you to become the belayer and you will be able to identify unsafe belaying proceedures when somebody else is holding the rope!
