【Dry Tooling】#28 Toprope Session held on 4/25(Thu) Daytime 14:00~. Nighttime 19:30~  

Beta climbing gym training | DryTouring TopRope Session


This month, the daytime and evening sessions will be held on different days!
There are still some assignments left to complete.
There will be a route change soon, so if you still have homework to do, please join us!

This is a session for dry touring experienced people.
Experienced doesn’t have to be good. If you have taken “Introduction to dry tooling“, you are an “experienced person”.

It’s also the only chance to vertically climb Beta’s face wall with an ice ax and a rope. Please feel free to enjoy!
(Usually, if you use the gym and climb the 3rd floor dry challenge, climbing using a rope is prohibited for safety reasons.)

The route was set by Mr. Hirokazu Kodaira, who is known as “Kazuo-san” in the dry touring community. They always put their ingenuity and prepare a fun route.

Not only dry touring enthusiasts, but also those who love ice climbing, please join us! “Perfect for off-season training and fun!”

If you are new to dry touring, please take “Introduction to dry tooling” first.

[Indoor] Introduction to multi-pitch climbing 2-part system Part 1 [Belay station construction] Part 2 [Rappelling] 3F (reservation required) Scheduled for April-June 2024

Beta Climbing Gym Seminar|Introduction to Multi-Pitch Climbing
Beta climbing Gym Multi-Pitch Introductory Calendar
Beta climbing Gym Multi-Pitch Introductory Calendar
Beta climbing Gym Multi-Pitch Introductory Calendar


Futagoyama/Central Ridge, Shiroyama/Battle Runner, Mt. Kentoku Hatate Rock/Central Ridge, Mt. Route: Mt. Mizugaki/Juichimeniwa back wall/Joyful Moment/Mt. Maehotaka/Kitaone/Mt. Kitahotaka/Eastern ridge/Mt. Tsurugi/Genjiro ridge/Mt. Concentric runze, large icicles on Mt. Arafune, Aizawa back wall, etc.

Multi-pitch climbing technology is often required for sports multi-climbing that you want to challenge, alpine multi-climbing that you want, multi-pitch ice climbing, climbing on these high-altitude walls, and climbing in mountainous areas. Even if you don’t need it, if you have mastered multi-tasking, you will be more likely to be able to safely deal with difficult situations to some extent.

Beta offers an introductory course where you can learn multi-pitch technology.
This workshop is for those who are new to multi-pitch climbing, those who want to review, and those who want to check their skills.
Since it will be held at the lead wall “Shinjuku Face” on the 3rd floor of Beta, you can take the course without worrying about the weather.
In this workshop, you can learn about the multi-pitch climbing system and safety management in the classroom, and actually experience two pitches indoors.
In multi-pitch climbing, there is a lot of knowledge to be learned and movements to be mastered, and it will be a dense time of 3 hours each time, 6 hours in total.

This introductory class does not immediately prepare you to climb multi-pitch routes on natural rocks. Before climbing a natural rocky place, it is necessary to understand safety management and practice so that a series of actions can be performed smoothly.
In the beta, students follow up on the following for the safe debut of Sotoiwa Multi.

1) Rope practice (every Monday from 19:00)
We hold rope practice sessions mainly for those who have taken the beta rope course (lead/multi).
Beta staff will be on hand to help you practice.
Participation by yourself is also fine. You can either practice with someone who has the same goal as you, or the staff will be your practice partner.
There is no participation fee. Only gym usage fee is OK.
Rope and gear rentals are free.

2) Free rope gear rental
Course participants can rent ropes and gear (ATC, harness, quickdraw) for free at any time.
Please come and practice when it is convenient for you.

3) Outdoor multi-pitch climbing practice session
We are holding a multi-pitch climbing practice session on the outside rock.
Under the safety management of the staff, participants will team up and climb. In fact, we climb with a crane by ourselves.
The climbing level is not so high, and the rope work is practiced.

4) Order rope course (every Friday)
We also offer classes on individual topics such as rappelling, fulcrum building and more.
As advanced techniques, we will also provide training on temporary fixing, climbing back, self-rescue, lifting system, etc.
Content and schedule can be arranged according to your request.

Also, it doesn’t matter how many times you take the “Introduction to Multi-Pitch Climbing” course.
Let’s wear a solid multi manners!

[Indoor] Lead Climbing Beginners Lesson 2-part system Part 1 [Climb] Part 2 [Belay] (3F) Reservation required Scheduled for April-June 2024

Beta Climbing Gym Seminar / Lead Climbing Beginner Semina
Beta Climbing Gym Seminar/Lead Climbing Beginner Seminar Calendar
Beta Climbing Gym Seminar/Lead Climbing Beginner Seminar Calendar
Beta Climbing Gym Seminar/Lead Climbing Beginner Seminar Calendar


Lead climbing is the foundation of all rope climbing. If you want to climb using a rope, you first need to learn lead climbing.
Once you’ve mastered the basics, such as lead climbing systems and belay mechanics, it’s time to move on to the next step, such as multi-pitch climbing.

This workshop is a workshop that teaches the rope work and other basic techniques for lead climbing.
Suitable for lead climbing beginners and those who want a refresher. The class will be held on the Beta 3F lead wall “Shinjuku Face”, so you can attend without worrying about the weather.
Lead climbing [Part 1] “Climbing technique” and [Part 2] “Belay technique” will be taught in two parts, combining classroom learning and practice.
Both have a lot of things to know and things to do, 2.5 hours for each part, 5 hours in total. It’s going to be a dense time.

Therefore, even if you take this course, you will not be able to practice lead climbing immediately at the lead gym or Sotoiwa.
It is necessary to practice repeatedly so that clipping and belaying can be performed smoothly, and to understand safety management such as the risks on rocky areas, how to use the correct gear, and what to do in case of a fall.

In Beta, students follow up on a safe lead climbing debut with:

1) Rope practice (every Monday from 19:00)
We hold rope practice sessions mainly for those who have taken the beta rope course (lead/multi).
Beta staff will be on hand to help you practice.
Participation by yourself is also fine. You can either practice with someone who has the same goal as you, or the staff will be your practice partner.
There is no participation fee. Only gym usage fee is OK.
Rope and gear rentals are free.

2) Free rope gear rental
Course participants can rent ropes and gear (ATC, harness, quickdraw) for free at any time.
Please come and practice when it is convenient for you.

3) Outer rock lead climbing beginner practice session
We are holding a lead climbing practice meeting at the outside rock.
It’s basically a top rope climbing practice, but I also practice climbing on a lead and belaying in consideration of my skills, etc., depending on the request.

4) Order rope course
We also offer courses on individual topics such as belaying and top rope fulcrum construction.
Content and schedule can be arranged according to your request.

Also, you can take the “Lead Climbing Beginner Course” course as many times as you like.
Let’s learn how to lead properly!
