Top ROPE Belay Test FREE

Ages 14 plus

Our Top Rope Belay Test is available to all climbers who are experienced top rope belayers, or who have recently finished our Basic Beginner Lesson. Passing this test grants you permission to top rope belay for other guests and members at Joe Rockhead’s. You must demonstrate how to wear and inspect a harness, how to tie in and inspect a climber’s knots, and how to properly belay a climber with a Grigri. Figure 8s are not pre-tied, and Grigris must be attached to the belayer’s harness.

Visitors must have a willing partner with them for the test. No booking required.

Lead Test FREE

Experienced lead climbers are required to pass a Lead Test before lead climbing and lead belaying in Joe Rockhead’s. Lead tests must be booked in pairs, with both climbers having experience belaying for each other.
