Assisted Climbing

The main goal of any climbing gym worker is to be able to assist any and every person that has the desire to live in our vertical world.  Sometimes, that can come in the form of a stronger belay.  For anyone with a physical impediment that keeps them from reaching the top,  we can easily set up a 2:1 pulley system to give them an extra boost.  We have used this system for people with muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy and paraplegia.

One end of the rope is attached to the belay bar and feeds to a pulley at the bottom of the climb. It then loops back up to a second pulley that is also attached to the belay bar.

The bottom of the system has the lower pulley that you attach to the climber (right) and a gri gri for the belayer (left).

If you know of anyone that would like to give climbing a try that could benefit from this system, give us a call and we can set this up for them.  If you need someone to belay the climber for you, we can set that up as well with advance notice.    Just call 303-254-4344 and ask for Amy.
