Families Rock Skills is an open climbing session on the MMC climbing walls. Our focus is to help your family become comfortable with roped climbing in a supportive, low pressure atmosphere developed to encourage kids. And, for kids and parents who want to learn more, Mazama Families Mountaineering instructors are also there to help you and your kids learn or practice any basic climbing skill you want to cover from belaying to rappelling or more. You tell us what you want to learn, and we’ll show you the ropes. Kids and parents can earn a belay card to be able to belay at other Families Rock events. All ages are welcome to attend. There is plenty of space for toddlers to play while their older siblings climb. Kid and adult rock shoes and harnesses with belay devices are available at no extra cost. Come for the entire session or drop in for just a part of the evening. Bring along some snacks, water, dinner and extra clothing layers. Limited to 20 climbing kids and adults. Fee: $2 per person, $5 max per family. Fee collected at door.
