Every person climbing at 9 degrees needs to sign a waiver.
No waiver, no climbing.
The original 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 under 5 accompanied by a parent may try a few climbs for free but will, however, still be required to have a waiver completed on their behalf. But note that our climbs are not intended for this age group and they must be closely supervised by an accompanying adult at all times.
Children 5 and over will be charged the 'student' price of $18 for admission.
The training area (near the disabled bathrooms) and ALL equipment in or belonging to it, 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.
If you have any unanswered questions or wonder if bouldering is the right option for your child, give us a call during opening hours on 02 8970 8567 (Alexandria) or 02 8872 1052 (Parramatta).
There is no charge for children under 5 visiting as our climbs are not suitable for this age group. Due to OHS requirements a waiver will still need to be filled out when entering the gym and they must be closely supervised by an accompanying adult at all times.
