BE AWARE

  • Bouldering is a physically demanding and gymnastic activity for which you need to be prepared; warm up carefully, rest adequately and heed any signs of injury
  • A fall from any hight can be dangerous
  • Bouldering is dangerous and can thus lead to serious injury or even death
  • It is possible to fall into the holds and features of a climbing wall, even if adequate care is taken
  • Climbing holds can become loose or break
  • Climbing can lead to sensuously rough hands
  • The crash mats are soft and thus present a tripping hazard, especially at their edges
  • If you have any medical condition that may affect your ability to climb, seek medical advice and inform our staff about this condition before climbing
  • Everyone using our centre must have an account on our system and also read and signed our liability waiver
  • Minors must have their liability waiver signed on their behalf by an appropriate guardian and this guardian must ensure appropriate supervision of the minor when they are climbing in the centre

BE RESPONSIBLE

  • Do not walk or position yourself under or too close behind climbers already climbing
  • Do not start climbing too close to someone who is already climbing; ensure you and other climbers already on the wall are not going to climb across each others path or come into contact if either of you fall
  • Ensure no one is in the fall zone of the boulder you are about to attempt
  • Ensure you are not standing in the fall zone of a boulder another is about to attempt
  • If you are uncomfortable falling from a certain height, do not climb that high
  • If necessary, organise a spotter to keep the required area around your boulder clear of others
  • If necessary, organise a spotter to guide your fall safely to the mats
  • If necessary, organise a spotter to reduce feelings of loneliness and to laugh at your jokes
  • Running, wrestling or acrobatics are not allowed anywhere in this bouldering centre
  • Heavy petting is to be kept to a minimum
  • Do not wear rings or wrist jewellery while climbing
  • If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to the centre's staff; they are here to help ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all and ponder the more perplexing questions of existence

 

BE AWESOME

  • And by “awesome”, we mostly mean clean
  • Put waste in the appropriate bin
  • Barefoot climbing and climbing in dirty or wet shoes is not allowed
  • Do not bring food or drink onto the mats
  • Clean up any spills of chalk, comestibles or other mess immediately
  • If you wouldn't do it at home, don't do it here
  • If you wouldn't do it at the one bedroom apartment of the super hot babe you've just started seeing, don't do it here
  • Put away or take your stuff home

CHILDREN

Although we think it's great that more and more kids are getting into climbing, our facilities have not been specifically designed with kids in mind. Bouldering is a challenging activity and the walls at our centre can be especially hard for smaller children to climb. A fall from the walls is larger for a smaller person and is therefore more dangerous the smaller a climber is. We also expect everyone in our centre, including children, to be safe, responsible and considerate of the other users of the centre. With these considerations in mind, we ask that:

  • all minors using our centre have their waiver signed by a guardian
  • minors are given appropriate supervision by a guardian while they are in the centre
  • children under 12 years old be supervised by one adult per child
  • guardians ensure the minors under their supervision follow the centre's rules
  • guardians ensure the minors under their supervision only climb to a height on the wall that they and the child are comfortable with
  • we recommend children under 140cm tall only climb to height where their hands are three quarters of the way up the wall
