This is the perfect opportunity for people to work together outside their normal environment. Whether you're a team from your workplace, volunteer group, or any other type of organization, the climbing wall provides a place to test one's limits and build strength, trust, and respect as a group.
If you're 16 years old or older, consider getting certified to belay at the Y. Parents who get certified can belay for their own children during open climb times. Certified belayers can also earn extra money staffing the wall during open climb and birthday parties, if desired. Don't delay—it's time to belay!
