Climbing Course

Learn to Belay

Learn the PBUS (Pull, Brake, Under, Slide) belay method for top-rope belaying.

COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

Spend an evening learning to belay a climber using the PBUS method (pull, brake, under, slide).  The PBUS method is a safer alternative than the Slip-Slap-Slide method when using a modern belay device.


Experienced instructors in a small group setting.  No experience necessary and all necessary safety gear is provided.  Wear athletic clothing (long pants are fine) and tight fitting sneakers (or climbing shoes if you have a pair).
