Safety

We take safety seriously.

  • It's why we use Trublue auto belays - the only auto belay device rated to the highest Worldwide Climbing Standard. Check it out at http://www.trubluebelay.com/
  • It's why every Climb & Cave session includes a briefing for every climber & caver before they enter the activity areas. 
  • Briefing and Safety Rules include: proper fitting of safety equipment, instruction in use of the activity equipment, safety checks before, during and finishing your activity, and a demonstration of 'safe' activity participation in the arena.
  • Children under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult in the climbing arena.
  • Children aged 6 and under must be assisted by an adult at all times in the climbing arena.
  • Remember to wear comfortable clothes for climbing and sports type footwear. More information is available here.
