|Climbing is an activity that offers many life benefits including mind, body, spirit, and community. Before joining us at Übergrippen to climb, take part in a fitness class, attend a party or event, participate in a climbing program or other crag activity, or just hang out with your friends and family, we want to make you aware of the dangers associated with the activities offered at our crag. We require all our members, participants, observers, and facility guests to review and sign our “Release of Liability and Assumption of Risk Agreement“. Even those not climbing need to be aware of the risks within the facility including potential falling objects that may create a hazard to you. If you forget or are unable to complete the waiver prior to your visit, you will be able to complete the waiver when you arrive at the crag at one of our several computer waiver stations (please allow adequate time to read and review the document in detail – a preview of the document is AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD as well).
A Note on Youth Participation
- All guests under 18 years old must have a waiver completed and signed by their PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN. There are absolutely no substitutions allowed for the parent or legal guardian.
- All crag guests under the age of 13 years old must be either supervised by an adult (18 years or older) or enrolled and participating in a staff supervised activity (e.g. a party, camp, club, or other program). Those parents that wish to bring their children under 13 years old to the crag without providing supervision will need to enroll them in one of our numerous youth programs including camps, clubs, after school programs, and climbing teams. Kids 13 years old and older may take our learn to climb classes to learn learn proper use of climbing equipment used at the crag as well as how to belay and climb on top rope. Once a child has completed this course and passed our belay certification, they can climb and belay others at the crag without adult supervision.
