The information provided below will give you general expectation about the event, as well as the time your child will need to be in isolation.

WAIVER

We would request that you fill out a wavier for the facility ahead of time. If your child has been to the facility in the last year and you have one on file you are set. If you are unsure if you have one, please take the time to fill one out again. The waiver is digital and available here.

FORMAT

This is an on-sight competition. There are 6 problems with 4 minutes climbing, no transition, 4 minutes rest for each climb.

ISOLATION CHECK IN

Competitor check in is at the BACK of the building at our garage door. There will be an awning over the check in table.

Do NOT bring the competitors through the front doors as this will disqualify them.

Parking spaces are limited. We will have a parking map for you at the isolation drop off table. We apologize in advance as we know that parking will likely be a slight walk to the building.

RULES

There will be no formal rules meeting for the competitors. Any competition/gym specific rules will be posted in isolation for the competitors.

Spectators, while the kids are climbing you may not give them beta or talk to them while they are in the chair as they are still considered in isolation during that time. Please do cheer them on with words of encouragement.

AWARDS
