Bring with you clothes suitable for sport. Reserve about 2 hours of time for a climbing session. You must bring a friend with you as your belayer. You and your friend don’t need to be the same weight. If your friend just belays you he/she needs to pay only for the rental of a harness
People under the age of 18 will need a letter of parental consent in order to climb, and children younger than 14 require adults to belay them. One adult can take turns belaying 2-4 children.
Pay at the counter before you start climbing. Let the staff know if any of you are new to climbing. Don’t teach belaying to your friends, let the instructor do it.
Be careful when moving around at the gym, there are climbers above you constantly. At times climbing holds might get broken and parts of them fall down. Also climbing gear on a climber’s harness might fall off. A climber coming off the wall or while being lowered can create a big swing that might cause two climbers to hit each other. Avoid standing below the climber.
Don’t step on the climbing ropes. The rope protects a climber when falling so you should take good care of your rope.
Pay at the counter before you start climbing. Don’t use your own belaying devices while top-rope climbing. Use the ready installed carabiners and belaying devices (Petzl ID). If you haven’t belayed with a Petzl ID before ask instructions from the supervisor
BELAYING WITH THE PETZL ID CAN ONLY BE TAUGHT BY THE CLIMBING INSTRUCTOR OR BY SOMEONE WITH THE INSTRUCTOR’S PERMISSION
Lead climbing involves risks of which both climber and belayer must be aware. The climber and belayer should have attended a lead climbing course or have the equivalent knowledge and skills on lead climbing. Lead climbing is only possible with your own climbing equipment. The supervisor can stop your lead climbing if he/she finds it too risky.
ONLY AN INSTRUCTOR OF THE CLIMBING GYM IS ALLOWED TO TEACH LEAD CLIMBING.
