4 Hour Programs
Take your group's climbing experience to the next level with an extended program at Vertically Inclined. Cover new skills, do tons more climbing and have fun!
Each of the 4-Hour programs offered begins with the 2-hour Just Climbing teaching participants the essential rope skills. From there you can customize your program be selecting one of the options below. Participants will continue to use and build upon the skills they learned in the Just Climbing session.
These programs can be done either as two 2-hour sessions or four 1-hour classes as your scheduling allows. Choose the options that best meet your program goals:
Just Climbing Plus: "more toproping and climbing activities"
Now that participants know how the ropes work, they get to do tons more climbing and answer some important questions:
- Can they get further up the walls they tried last time?
- How many walls can they climb?
- Who will win the toprope challenges?
Getting Into It add-on: "learn lots, climb lots" Starting with the rope management basics from the Just Climbing, we'll build on those by teaching the climbing knot and more belaying skills (depending on the age of the participants). There'll be lots of climbing to solidify those skills and participants will then have all the skills to continue climbing outside of class.
ClimbFit add-on: "toproping to fitness" The best of both worlds! After starting off with the Just Climbing where participants pick up the basic rope skills, the ClimbFit session will show students how topropring can be used as a means to increase physical fitness.
