The GPRC Climbing Gym offers three levels of climbing: 1. Bouldering (climbing on the lower 12 feet of the wall without a rope or harness). This is a very popular aspect of the sport as it requires little equipment, no experience to start, and you can climb on your own as it suites your schedule. 2. Top-Rope Climbing. Once you are in a harness and have a belayer, they you can climb above the 12 foot bouldering height. We have 10 top-ropes set up and once you have taken our belay course and/or passed the belay test, you are welcome to use them anytime we are open, no booking necessary. Top-rope climbing is extremely safe, and you have to admit, it is fun climbing high. If you don't have time to take the full course, you can always try the First Touch Climbing Course, or Hire-a-belayer. 3. Lead Climbing. Lead climbing is the most dynamic type of climbing we offer. It is exciting but requires a higher level of skill than top-rope climbing/belaying. We ask that climbers climb at a 5.10 level and have been top-rope belaying for 6 months before signing up for a lead climbing course.
