Waiver Requirements

  • Every person climbing at 9 degrees needs to sign a waiver.

  • No waiver, no climbing.

  • A digital waiver or a printed signed waiver is required. A scanned, photographed or emailed waiver can not be accepted.

Guidelines For Under 18's

  • All persons under 18 years of age must have their waivers signed by a parent/guardian before using the facilities at 9 degrees.

  • Children under the age of 12 must be supervised by an adult at a ratio of 2:1 at all times unless under the supervision of an approved trainer or coach. Exemptions may be made by 9 degrees staff on a case-by-case basis for experienced and/or competent youth climbers.

  • Children of ages of 5 to 18 will be charged the 'student' price of $18 for admission.

  • The facilities are not designed for children under the age of 5. If, however, they arrive as part of a group of paying children/customers they may try a few climbs for free when accompanied by an adult. They will be required to have a waiver completed on their behalf. Note that our climbs are not really intended for this age group and they must be closely supervised by an accompanying adult at all times.

  • All training equipment is strictly prohibited to persons under 15 years unless under the direct supervision of a parent, guardian or trainer.

  • Although 9 degrees endeavours to be a child friendly facility, please keep in mind we cater predominantly for those of 15 years and over. While there's undoubtedly many climbs an adventurous 5 year old can conquer with the required supervision, larger groups or those hoping to leave children unattended may be better off exploring other options for kids entertainment.
