Facility Waiver

All participants (climbing, fitness or yoga) must have a signed waiver. Minors (17 years and younger) must have a waiver signed by one of their parents or their legal guardian (sorry, aunts and uncles and older siblings, you've got to have Mom and Dad do it). You can also fill it in when you come at one of our waiver terminals, but filling it out online before you come in will make your first check-in easier.
