Suas Climbing Centre Rules

  • Risks

      • General: Climbing and bouldering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement. Although Suas is an artificial environment, many of the risks involved are no less serious than when climbing outside on a crag or boulder. Climbing beyond your capabilities on any indoor wall is likely to result in a fall. Any fall may result in an injury despite the safety systems in place to avoid it. You must make your own assessment of the risks whenever you climb.
      • Terms & Conditions: Please take time to read the Terms & Conditions It’s important and is legally binding and sets out the terms and conditions which govern our relationship with you.
      • Holds and volumes: Holds and volumes can spin or break at any time resulting in you falling off a wall in an uncontrolled manner. Loose or damaged holds must be reported to reception straight away.
      • Boulder Matting: The soft flooring under the bouldering walls is designed to provide a more comfortable landing for climbers falling or jumping from the bouldering wall. The matting does not make bouldering any safer then any other form of indoor climbing activity at greater height involving ropes. Broken and sprained limbs are common on this type of climbing wall despite the soft landing. Uncontrolled falls are likely to result in injuries to you or others.
