You have to get tested if you want to climb without one of the staff with you. Also, it is much less expensive if you can belay each other as opposed to hiring one of the employees. The training is pretty simple and you just have to pass a belay test. Then your "certification" is good for a year. Expect to pay around $25 a person if you don't have to get the training and an extra $20 if you do. You can rent a locker for your stuff for a couple of extra dollars.
