"The Intro class gives one the knowledge to safely work with another climber, proper fitting of a harness, tying into the rope, configuring the belay device, and proper communication between climbers. The class exposes the individual to rock wall climbing as well as bouldering. The members and staff provide such a positive environment in which to explore this sport!"
