Everyone attending for their first time must attend an orientation on their first visit to learn the basics and go over facility rules. Students 13 and up may belay each other after they attend orientation. An adult must attend and stay with children under the age of 13 at all times.

Everyone must fill out a waiver, even if you are not climbing, to be in the building:
