PLEASE NOTE: Both students and parents are encouraged to sign up for a Basic
Safety Lesson ! This introductory lesson covers knot tying, belaying, rope
management skills, the use of technical equipment, and climbing commands. An
emphasis is placed on the skills needed to climb and belay in a controlled
environment. Although belay skills can be learned by any individual who is
ready to learn them, please keep in mind that you must be 14 or older to
test out to belay at Vertical Endeavors

Indoor rock climbing is a great way to introduce your students to a unique
experience in a controlled, professional environment. Vertical Endeavors
offers a variety of experiential education opportunities where students can
broaden their horizons, try a new activity, and step out of their comfort
zones. The benefits of indoor rock climbing include promoting mental and
physical health, improving self-esteem and self-confidence, encouraging
teamwork and leadership, and developing problem-solving and goal-setting
skills. To complement this experience, we have integrated curriculum ideas
in a variety of subjects that incorporate rock climbing as a learning tool.
