WAIVERS

Once your group is booked, everyone (participants and observers) will need to create a client account and sign a waiver. We will email the link to create an account and digitally sign our waiver. Waivers must be signed by a legal parent/guardian. EVERYONE walking around the facility needs a waiver signed, even if they're not climbing. Having this completed early will help ensure a smooth, quick sign-in process to get the participants climbing as soon as possible. If you signed a waiver BEFORE May of 2017, we'll need the new one signed before you or your child can participate.
