Basics of Rope Climbing

This course teaches you the basics of safe top rope climbing and top rope belaying (belayer on ground). The course price includes a free 1 month trial membership. After the course, you are able to independently climb on top rope and belay another climber. You will also receive a training card from the instructor, with which you can independently practice top rope climbing and belaying on top rope in Wasa Up. After two weeks of independent training, you can take a belay test to obtain a national top rope card, which will allow you to top rope on all Finnish climbing centres.

If you’re a first time visitor, please arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled start of the course.

English rope climbing courses are arranged by demand. You can for example gather a group of 3-9 people, and suggest a time that would suit you. If you are interested, please contact info@wasaup.fi
