Oakwood Climbing Centre is dedicated to creating a safe environment for all participants at our facilities. Climbing is inherently dangerous. Safe practice requires the active involvement of both the climber and the belayer, which dictates the need for personal responsibility. It is therefore our requirement that all participants sign a liability release. Our rules and belay tests have been developed to help us evaluate and minimise the potential for climber or belayer error, but they are weak substitutes for attentiveness and appreciation of the responsibilities we all have for our own safety.

Each participant must sign a liability waiver or have a current copy on file in order to be in the gym. To save time during check-in, fill out our online pre-registration now. Participants under the age of 18 must have a waiver filled out by their legal guardian.

If you are supervising anyone at our centre, you must have completed a form for yourself, even if you are not climbing yourself.
