    "We Belay" Climbing Session (South Boston)

    Rock Spot Climbing
    So, what's a belay, exactly? It's a rope that goes all the way up the rock wall with you while your partner holds it from all the way down on the ground. Experience the rush of climbing without an automated belay that does all the work for you! In this course, a trained climbing instructor will operate your belay while you climb to the top of a rock wall suited exactly to your skill level. After your daring climb, your instructor will insure a glorious slow-motion descent down the wall where you can wave to all your adoring fans. And don't worry-- you'll be safely supervised the whole time (but you can edit that part of the story out later, if you want).

Now grab a partner because it takes more than one to tango.
