Our basic Skills class is…

  • CONVENIENT: Take the class anytime we’re open.
  • ACTIVE: Climbing is a full-body workout.
  • FUN: It engages your body AND your mind.
  • FRIENDLY: It’s far more encouraging in here than any regular gym.

Price: FREE to members. $30/non-member, which includes equipment rental and climbing for the day.
Minimum age: 14. Got somebody younger? No problem. We can give any adult the class, and you’ll be able to hold the ropes for your youngster all day long. If you’re not climbing the fee is $20 for instruction and equipment. We also have a youth climbing team/club that is rapidly becoming the talk of the town!

This class is the first step in learning to climb! Our Basic Skills introductory course is fast and easy and gets you on the wall almost right away. You’ll learn the essential safety skills needed to climb at Rise Up on your own. Upon completion of this class, you’ll be able to put on a harness, clip into the rope and belay for a partner. All the equipment you’ll need is included and once you complete the 30 minutes of instruction you can stay and climb on your own for the remainder of the day. You can then return and climb at Rise Up whenever you’d like without further instruction giving you the opportunity to see why climbing is a fantastic workout.

Your class fee includes instruction, rental equipment and climbing for the day. And again, groups of five or fewer do not need a reservation. Just come in.
