Climbing Wall Volunteers

You may have noticed a lovely yellow vest in the climbing box lately. That serves a purpose beyond being extremely fashionable.

We want to allow parents (and other volunteers) to help belay for their kids and others if they choose. BUT we also want other guests to know that these volunteers are special and have been properly trained. This should eliminate random people helping themselves to 2-story climbing. 

Training should include:

  • Choosing the right hardness and ensuring the proper fit.
  • Unlatching the carabiner and how to keep from losing it.
  • The physics of falling and how to make sure climbers fall safely. 
  • Lastly, how to know who has paid for 2 story climbing. 

Coming soon.... climbing wall training video!
