Membership Sign Up

Membership FAQ

Yes, your guests get free rental gear, (shoes, harness, chalk bag, and belay device). This is true for guests using your regular monthly guest pass as well as on Bring-A-Friend-Friday.
You may do this at the front desk, over the phone (by calling 323-505-7000), or here.

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.

Membership Policies and How to Freeze/Cancel

  • No Contract
    • There is no contract and you can cancel at any time.
  • One Calendar Month Minimum
    • There is a one calendar month minimum. When you join, you will be charged a prorated amount for that month, and will be billed for the following month on the first of that calendar month.
  • Billing
    • Membership dues are billed on the first of the month, and your initial month is prorated (that is, if you join up half-way through a month, you’re charged half the monthly rate for that calendar month).
  • Membership Changes
    • Freezing
      • Climbing trip? Dissertation? Freeze your membership for as long as you like, and you won't incur an initiation fee when you come back.
      • The freeze fee is $10/month.
      • Membership is frozen starting on the next billing date.
      • When you thaw your membership, a prorated amount for the remainder of the billing month is added to your account.
      • The fee is waived for military freezes.
    • Cancelling
      • You can cancel at any time effective on the first of the following month. (That is, we will not charge you again after you cancel, but you will not receive a refund for the remainder of the month for which you have already been charged.)
      • NOTE: The cancellation or expiration of your credit card does not automatically cancel your membership or this agreement. If your card is cancelled or expires, you will continue to be invoiced and you agree to pay these invoices according to your card issuer agreement.
    • You can change the credit card you have on file, freeze, or cancel your membership here. Staff cannot freeze or cancel your membership at the desk or by phone.
