BEGINNER CLIMBING CLUB
AGES 8+
Saturdays 10am-11:30am

The Beginner’s Climbing Club is geared towards new climbers with little to no climbing experience. This club focuses on getting on the wall and tower, and building comfort and enthusiasm for the sport while teaching basic climbing skills and safety. Weekly activities include climbing the Alpine Tower and Carolina Wall in the climber’s skill level, and some light coaching to increase the climber’s skills. This club is a more laid back club, allowing the climber to develop at their own pace and to their own desired level of climbing.

ADVANCED CLIMBING CLUB
AGES 12+ (with approval from Adventure Department and Climbing Staff)
Saturdays 12:15-2pm

The Advanced Climbing Club will be geared towards more advanced climbers who have excelled in the Climbing Camp, Beginners Club, or come to the Y with previous climbing experience. Spending more time on the Carolina Wall, this club will focus more on improving the technique, strength and flexibility of the climber than the beginners club. Club members will also have the opportunity to learn climbing safety, belay techniques, and general tower skills. Advanced Club members age 15 or above, with approval from the Climbing Staff, would be able to assist with belaying for both the Advanced Club and the Beginners Club, as well as parties, camps, or other tower activities for volunteer hours.
