That’s exactly what Chanley and Austin, from the Suzuki 947 Crew, did.
They visited City Rock in Randburg, which also happens to be the largest climbing gym in Africa.
With Chanley and Austin having never rock climbed before, it was suggested that they do the “introductory belay course - which is a great way to get started for all the newbies.
This course consisted of a once off 1-hour session where our 2 amazing instructors taught us how to harness and tie the knot to ensure safety, top rope belay skills, top rope climbing skills and then for the fun part - actually climbing the wall!
It was great fun and an adrenaline rush fuelled activity. However, if you’re afraid of heights, we wouldn’t recommend this one for you which is exactly why Austin decided to sit this one out when it came to the rock climbing part of the course.
Chanley had an absolute blast as she climbed all the way to the top which definitely left her arms and legs feeling like jelly after the 1-hour session was done.
The introductory belay course sessions are held every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings between 7 and 8pm and Saturday and Sunday Mornings between 11 and 12pm and again from 2 – 3pm.
Booking is required and climbers must be 14 years or older.
The course includes:
· Gear rental (shoes, harness)
· Basic safety procedures
· Figure 8 tie-in knot
· Top rope belay skills
· Top rope climbing
· Free climbing after the course
· Cost: R250 per person
Fun for all is possible at City Rock as they offer a kids climbing facility as well as a yoga and training area where you are able to work on your flexibility, strength and cardio.
After a good workout, sit back, cool off, relax and enjoy their free Wi-Fi and one of their legendary cappuccinos.
