Other Details for Your School Field Trip
School fields trips are approximately four hours in length. Plan to arrive 15 minutes before your climb time to check in your group.
All student waivers should be signed IN ADVANCE by parents to ensure that all students are able to climb that day. Our online Group Client Terminal make it easy to obtain parent signatures and payments as needed.
