Your safety is our top priority and we take no shortcuts here. Every person wanting to climb at CityROCK must complete a safety orientation on their first visit, regardless of experience level. 

If you want to top-rope or lead climb at CityROCK, you will need to pass a simple belay test (regardless of your experience level). 

Returning customers who have not been in the facility for one year or more will also need to retake the belay test.

First Time Visitors

If you’ve never been to CityROCK before or are new to climbing, you’re in for a treat! We want to ensure you have the best possible experience. Climbing is a challenging sport, both mentally and physically. That’s one of the reasons we love it and why some basic instructions can help your first time climbing to be on-point.

Prepare for Your Visit

All first time visitors to a CityROCK branch, whether or not you will be climbing, must complete a liability waiver and present a government-issued photo ID or driver’s license for verification. 

For people under 18 years of age, the liability waiver must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. If the parent or guardian will not be present on the day of your visit, please bring a photocopy of their ID or driver’s license.

Doing this before you arrive will save you 10 minutes and ensure that you arrive to your class on time.
