We offer different types of climbing for the same low price, but each one requires different sets of equipment, knowledge and experience.
Climbing on short walls without ropes and harnesses. Instead you are protected by thick mats underneath you. Climbers under 14 years old must be supervised by an adult.
Climbing tall walls with the security of a rope and harness. Top roping requires a properly trained and tested belayer to work the ropes on the ground. Climbers 13 and older can be trained. Niagara Climbing Center does not provide belayers.
An automatic belay device (AKA auto belay) takes up slack as you climb, thereby negating the need for a belayer on the ground. When the climber reaches the top, or if they fall, the device automatically catches the climber and slowly lowers them to the ground.
