TRUBLUE Auto Belay for Climbing Gyms
In a climbing gym environment, there are lots of great uses for the TRUBLUE Auto Belay
As an Introduction to Climbing
Auto belays are perfect for allowing new climbers to get a feel for the movement while reducing the potential anxiety caused by learning to belay. Once the new climber is comfortable with the movement of climbing, they will be more open to belaying instruction and further education. Auto belays are a great way to get them hooked, and then you can provide the programming to help them develop their overall climbing skills.
For Single Climbers
Sometimes your members just don't have a partner for climbing. Conflicting schedules and short lunch hours can get in the way of a quality partner session. Or you might have a member that is new to the area. Incorporating auto belays into your facility provides an option for these single climbers, keeping them engaged and coming back.
For Kids Programming and Birthday Parties
Auto belays are a great option for kids programming, especially for younger kids that might not be ready to belay. Using auto belays in your kids programs allows staff to concentrate on teaching, not belaying. Plus, you need less staff to run your programs, resulting in a lower cost for you.
For Adult Programming and Training
Auto belays can also have a place in adult programming, particularly with new climbers. Plus, auto belays can be a great training tool. Check out the video below of the auto belay circuit training program developed by the Boulder Rock Club.
TRUBLUE for Climbing Gyms
See how Santa Barbara Rock Gym, an 8,500 square foot facility that provides climbing to challenge all ability levels, successfully incorporates auto belays into their facility.
These types of results from using auto belays have been replicated in climbing gyms all around the world.
