Spotting and Falling
Spotting and falling at a climbing gym are two essential safety skills. Spotting is when a climber is supported by another person to catch them if they fall off the wall. Falling safely is an important skill to master, as it ensures the climber can take more risks and progress in their climbing. Experienced climbers should always spot beginners, and consider taking a class to learn proper spotting techniques. Falling properly is also essential for avoiding injury, as it allows the climber to land on their feet and absorb the impact of the fall. Climbing gyms provide a safe and supportive environment for climbers to practice spotting and falling, and should be utilized to improve climbing safety.
Aiguille also provides instructional classes for a multitude of climbing-related disciplines, with each class being tailored to our customers' needs. Some subjects we can cover are lead climbing, climbing technique, first-time outdoors, sport and trad lead, rappelling, anchors, rescue, ice climbing, mountaineering, industrial and commercial work, and adventure racing. Certain disciplines may be unavailable at any given time.
