Effective October 6, 2020 Granite Arch will be open to members, punch card holders, and limited day use (i.e. no groups) following the guidelines and restrictions ordered by the State of California and the County of Sacramento due to the COVID-19 crisis.
Climbing is an inherently dangerous sport. Everyone participating in any activity or event at Granite Arch must have a current “Release of Liability, Waiver and Assumption of Risk” form (also referred to simply as a “Waiver”) on file at Granite Arch. PLEASE NOTE THAT EFFECTIVE 12/5/2018 ALL PARTICIPANTS AND VISITORS MUST COMPLETE AN UPDATED WAIVER ACCESSIBLE BELOW OR ONSITE AT GRANITE ARCH.
IF YOU ARE UNDER THE AGE OF 18, your Waiver must be signed by YOUR parent or your court appointed, legal guardian. There are no exceptions to this requirement. Waivers signed by a minor’s grandparent or other relative, neighbor or friend will not be accepted unless they are the minor’s court appointed legal guardian. If you are signing a Waiver on behalf of a minor as their court appointed legal guardian, you must present the court documentation when you come to Granite Arch.
You have three options available to complete your Waiver or your child’s Waiver. The best and preferred option is to fill it out at one of our waiver stations in Granite Arch. When you complete the check-in process your Waiver will be entered into our system for future visits.
Your second option is to complete the Waiver online by clicking on the link below. Please note that when filling out a Waiver on-line it requires email verification. When you arrive at Granite Arch let our counter staff know you completed your waiver online and they will enter it into our system. If you are submitting an online Waiver on behalf of a minor as their court appointed legal guardian, you must present the court documentation when you come to Granite Arch.
You can also download a pdf copy of our Waiver by clicking on the appropriate link below. You can then print it and fill it out and bring it with you to Granite Arch (or send it along with your child if they are part of a group). Please be aware, however, that paper waivers are only good for the day you bring them in.
Whether you choose to fill out your Waiver at Granite Arch, on line, or on paper, please take the time to review the Granite Arch Gym Rules prior to completing the Waiver form. The rules are posted in the gym or you can click on the link below to view a pdf copy.
