Youth Safety

Bouldering is super fun. And kids are naturals at it. But rock climbing is dangerous and has many risks. Highly-attentive adult supervision is crucial for the safety of youth and others.

RULES

DIRECT SUPERVISION IS REQUIRED OVER YOUTH DURING THE ENTIRETY OF THEIR VISIT. ADULTS CANNOT SUPERVISE MORE THAN 2 YOUTH AT A TIME IN THE ADULT CLIMBING AREA. IN THE YOUTH SECTIONS OF THE GYM AN ADULT MAY SUPERVISE UP TO 3 YOUTH AT A TIME.

Before climbing, all participants under 18 must have a waiver signed only by a parent or legal guardian.

Unchaperoned drop-offs are not permitted. Youth must be actively supervised by their responsible adult at all times.

Indoor voices. No yelling.

Fitness equipment may only be used by people 14 and over. No playing allowed on fitness equipment.

Never stand, sit, or walk in an area where another climber could fall. Always look at the climbing walls around you, especially when walking through the gym, to see where climbers are on the walls.
