Kids First Time

Kids love to climb! Here are just a few steps to get started climbing at Planet Granite!

  1. Every visitor to Planet Granite must complete the liability waiver AND present a government-issued photo ID card within 30 days of completing the waiver. For minors under 18 years of age, the liability waiver must be signed by a parent or legal guardian*. If the parent or guardian will not be present, please bring a photocopy of the adult’s government-issued photo ID for signature verification. *Please note: legal guardians must present proof of guardianship to sign a child’s waiver.

  2. There are two types of climbing, route climbing or bouldering.
      1. Route climbing, which is the more widely known style of climbing, requires a belayer, or person managing the ropes for a climber. Parents can either learn to belay by taking one of our Parent Child Belay Lessons or hire a private belayer (call for reservations).
      2. Bouldering is a type of climbing that is shorter to the ground and does not use ropes so is a fun and simple way to introduce your child to climbing.

  3. Wear comfortable clothes and tie on shoes. We have gear available to rent for both kids and adults!
