It is our primary goal to ensure that you and your guests have THE BEST TIME EVER at Hoover Heights Climbing Center! 

At the time of reservation, you will be asked to provide a credit card to have on file with your account. Hoover Heights will charge a $100 reservation fee to the credit card account as a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit for any event booked with us. Final payment will be collected at the conclusion of your event.

Climbing harnesses and shoes are provided for each guest. Socks are required when using our shoes. Climbers are welcome to bring their own shoes, but all climbers must wear our harnesses. We recommend clothing that allows for freedom of movement and advise against wearing skirts or dresses.

We also discourage you from wearing rings, long necklaces, or big earrings as jewelry may get caught and damaged while climbing.

Safety, supervision, and service are our top priorities. Staff will provide a safety orientation, proper gear fitting, safety considerations for each wall, and will do all clipping and unclipping of climbers.

No climbers are allowed to self-clip into our belay devices while in the facility.

Please do not bring food and drinks into the climbing facility.

The minimum weight limit to climb in Hoover Heights is 35 lbs and the maximum is 300 lbs. All children must be able to fit into our harnesses securely in order to climb.

Staff discretion will be used to determine if your child can safely climb.

Each participant under the age of 18 must have a waiver completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian. All other climbers can fill out our waiver online or in-person on the day of your reservation. 

If you are attending a group event or birthday party please ensure all participants have filled out the waiver prior to your start time. This will expedite your check-in process.
