What to Wear  |  What Not to Wear


  • Wear close-toed shoes! Flip flops or sandals are not permitted while climbing. 

  • Bring a pair of tight-fitting athletic or yard gloves. Or, use our gloves. See more about gloves below. 

  • Do not wear loose clothing or scarves that can get caught in rope and cable. 

  • Tie back hair longer than shoulder length.

  • If you have your phone while climbing, make sure it is secured on your body so it doesn’t fall. We suggest a low-profile clear plastic carrier that is attached to your body. 

  • While climbing, fanny packs are permitted; backpacks are not permitted. 

  • Please note there is a 245 lb individual weight limit. 



We provide leather fingertip-less gloves that can be borrowed. These gloves are sanitized and re-used.  Some guests prefer to bring their own gloves.  


Gloves are essential to protect your hands on the course so they don’t get cut or chapped. You will be gripping heavy rope and cable on the obstacles. 


We suggest tight-fitting gloves that allow your fingers the dexterity to clip/unclip your carabiners and to tightly grip rope and cable. Typical options may include riding gloves or yard gloves with some grip padding.


We have a limited selection of gloves available for purchase. 

What to bring into the Park 


  • Leave valuables in your vehicle. 

  • Bring a water bottle to fill up at our dispensers. 

  • Bug spray and sunscreen may come in handy. 

  • You may bring your own food and beverage. Please carry out your trash. 



There are two options: 

  • On the frontage road adjacent to Highway 61 (no RVs, buses or trailers on this road). 

  • On Outer Drive just past the first motel driveway.
