A separate waiver for visitors aged 13-17 can be found here
In order to climb, all participants at the centre are obliged to sign a waiver on their first visit. It is the responsibility of the participant to be familiar with and to adhere to the safety regulations, as well as following the advice given by our personnel staff and in the safety announcements given by the centre.
When submitting a waiver for persons aged 13-17 years, the signed consent and agreement of the safety regulations by a parent or guardian is required. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to ensure that each participant has understood the safety regulations. Certain areas of the climbing centre are reserved for persons over the age of 15 years.
