A FEW THINGS TO KNOW

EVERYONE MUST SIGN A WAIVER

Anybody who is planning to climb or walk on the “blue mats” at any of our facilities is required to fill out a waiver.

Waivers MUST be filled out by the state-appointed legal guardian of each climber. Sending your kids with a friend or neighbor? No problem! Just fill out the E-Waiver online before they arrive and you’ll be good to go!

FACILITY ORIENTATION

Everyone who visits our facilities must participate in a full gym orientation. This includes a 10-15 minute tour of our club, an overview of the rules, safety tips, types of climbing, tips and tricks and more! Our tours are a great way to get to know some of the TRC staff members and to learn more about the world of climbing.

BELAYING VS. AUTOBELAYING

BELAYING

Belaying is how two partners climb with one another. One person is on the ground, managing the rope by belaying and the second person is on the wall climbing. A climbing rope is attached to the climber’s harness from where it runs to the top of the wall over a fixed bar and back down to the belayer on the ground. The belayer is in charge of managing the rope and ensuring the climber’s overall safety.

Please note, we do NOT have TRC staff members available to belay.

AUTOBELAYS
Autobelays do not require a partner and are typically used for first-time climbers or those climbing without a belay-certified partner. We have 6 TrueBlue Autobelays in Morrisville, 7 in North Raleigh and 4 in Fayetteville.

TOP ROPE CLIMBING VS. BOULDERING

TOP ROPE CLIMBING
Top-roping is what most people imagine when we talk about rock climbing. In top rope climbing, you have two participants: one person (the climber) attached to one end of the rope (with a figure-8 knot) and another (the belayer) attached to the other end. You must be belay certified through TRC in order to belay another climber while he/she climbs via top roping. Not sure how to belay? Check out our INTRO TO CLIMBING CLASS >>

BOULDERING
Bouldering is climbing without ropes and requires no partners (although, it’s sometimes nice to have a friend spotting you!). At TRC Morrisville and TRC Fayetteville, our bouldering areas are equipped with recessed, extra-padded, seamless flooring – installed with our bouldering climbers in mind! At TRC North Raleigh, we have multiple crash pads (basically extra-large gymnastic mats!) at your disposal to move around and use as needed.

WHAT’S THE COST & WHAT DO I GET?

When you pay for a Day Pass, you are paying for a full day of climbing at that facility! Feel free to climb a while, take a break for lunch and a movie, and finish your day out with another climb at that same TRC facility! Remember to FILL OUT A WAIVER >>
