This is Vertical Endeavors’ program information:

A five-hour class in which Scouts can meet all of the requirements for the BSA Climbing Merit Badge. Badge requirements include belaying, rappelling, knot tying, rope management and other general safety requirements. We recommend that scouts be at least 12 years old and have completed the First Aid Merit Badge. This class is open to both Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, however the requirements met are only that of the BSA Climbing Merit Badge.
Note: During this program, children (under the age of the 14) may belay for each other at the instructor’s discretion. Youth may also be required to use a backup belayer at the instructor’s discretion.
What should I bring?
You should wear loose comfortable athletic clothing and tight shoes if you won’t be renting climbing shoes. Rental shoes are available for $5. If you bring anyone under 18 they absolutely must have a waiver filled out by their parent or court appointed legal guardian. If you have long hair bring something to tie it back.
