Bouldering Wall Policies

  • Proper spotting technique will be taught in the orientation and is encouraged throughout the bouldering area.
  • Down climbing is suggested after completing a route. When dropping from a route make sure the landing area is clear below you.
  • The use of drag pads are required for overhanging sections of the wall. The placement of these pads is important to help minimize fall impact. They should be moved under the climber in the expected direction of fall for the given route.
  • Topping out of routes is not permitted on the bouldering wall.
  • Do not touch, hang on, or otherwise interfere with anything mounted to the ceiling above the wall. Including fire sprinkler, pipes, lighting, etc.
  • Climbing above or below another climber is not allowed. Always be aware of where others are in relation to yourself when climbing, spectating, and walking through the facility.
  • Bouldering is not permitted on the vertical climbing wall.
  • Climbing is not permitted in the overhanging cave adjacent to the glass door. Access to the ledge on the far left of the vertical wall is strictly prohibited.
  • Patrons should inform staff of any spinning holds or loose tape on a route.
