  • All climbers must complete a waiver in advance of the outing or make arrangements to sign on site. Climbers under 19yo must have waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian. Waivers are available as a Google Doc, through Dropbox or as a paper copy.

  • All equipment is provided, including helmet, harness and rock shoes for all guests. Ropes and rigging are provided by the Idlewild guide team. Guests should wear comfortable clothing and footwear for being outside and active. Bringing along small pack with personal items like sunglasses, sunscreen, chapstick, snacks and water is super pro move.
