What can you do at Vertical Ventures?
TYPES OF CLIMBING:
This is the most common form of climbing in gyms. In top rope climbing, there are 2 people involved – the climber and the belayer. As the climber ascends the wall, it is the belayers job to control the pre-hung safety rope so that when (not if) the climber falls, they don’t actually fall, they just rest in their harness.
Similar to top roping, the autobelays allow one to climb up higher walls, but without needing an additional person to belay.
In bouldering, the climber climbs sideways on terrain up to 12′ high, without a rope.
Lead climbing is a more advanced form of roped climbing that requires intensive training and practice, and is not done by novice climbers.
