Generally, verification is not required to enjoy climbing & belaying in Climb Central. During your first visit, you will attend a 15 minute safety briefing where our crew will demonstrate how to belay using our safety systems.
Verification is required only if you wish to use the lead climbing wall, or to use a belay method not shown in the safety briefing. This is a facility-level skill check for proficiency in climbing & belaying. It must be taken on an assisted braking device (ABD) as you will need to use an ABD on our lead walls.
Take the assessment and get a verification tag to display on your harness!
Tag is recognized at all Climb Central facilities, Ground Up Climbing & Onsight Climbing
*As ad-hoc verification is subject to availability, we suggest to book a time-slot in advance.
For tourists requiring special arrangements, please email us to check for availability.
How does it work:
1. Attend a Top Rope or Lead Class
2. Read up on matrix below
3. Sign up as a pair
4. Get verified
5. Display verification tag to climb!
Verification must be taken on an assisted braking device (ABD) as you are required to use an ABD on our lead walls. Examples of ABDs include the Petzel GriGri, Madrock Lifeguard, Edelrid MegaJul, and Mammut Smart. You will need to provide your own belay device as we only have the Edelrid MegaJul for rental.
The minimum age to take verification & belay is 13. For children under 13 that are proficient lead climbers, please speak to a staff member for more information.
Climbers will need to have checked-in for the day before taking the verification (e.g. purchased day pass or checked-in using multi /Orange /White pass). Upon check-in, do let the counter staff know that you have a verification booking.
Sign ups must be in pairs or more. Please find your own partner who is either already verified, or taking the verification with you.
You are advised to bring your own climbing equipment as rental equipment is subject to availability. Rental equipment is free for the duration of the test. However, do note that Climb Central only rents the MegaJul: if you wish to use another ABD, please have your own device on hand.
Fees paid are non-refundable after payment has been made and booking is confirmed. Requests for changes can be made before the session but is subject to availability and a $5 administrative charge.
Please email requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. Non-medical requests for changes with less than 72 hours notice will not be allowed.
