The Live the Ropes intro package comprises the two-hour Learning the Ropes course for one person, two days of equipment rentals, one extra day pass, and two bottles of water. The Learning the Ropes class prepares climbers to pass the belay safety test. Upon successful completion of the test, climbers may use their day passes. Customers with the two-day passes must also pass the belay safety test before using their passes. Climbers must be 13 years of age or older, though children under 13 may climb if they have a belayer over the age of 13 who has passed the safety test.
Vertical Rock Indoor Climbing and Fitness Center
Vertical Rock’s expansive, air-conditioned facility welcomes climbers ranging from novices to experts with routes suited to every level of ability. The climbing wall towers to more than 50 feet, crisscrossed by numerous lead-only and top-rope routes with difficulty grades falling between 5.5 and 5.13. A mighty arch of more than 125 feet spans the space, littered with treacherous horizontal hangs to entice advanced climbers as well as those who have been banned from the St. Louis Arch. First-timers can start out with open climbs, which include an expert’s assistance with putting on the harness, tying the safety knot, and belaying for three separate climbs. From there, committed climbers advance through the outfit’s lineup of expert-led classes, starting with basic safety skills and techniques in the Learning the Ropes intro course and running all the way up to advanced classes on crack climbing, functional movements, and escaping from prison.
