Do I need a partner, or can I climb by myself?

There are several options if you don’t have a climbing partner.

  • We currently have 5 auto-belays, which allow individuals to climb every sport rout on our wall without a belay partner.
  • If you wish to use ropes, but don’t have a climbing partner, our staff are belay certified and always willing to belay you on any roped climb.
  • Bouldering does not require ropes or a partner, and is a great way to climb individually.

How do I get belay certified?
