The Rules

  1. Sign an acknowledgment of risk form and an acknowledgement of rules form and turn it into either a St. Charles CA from 7-10pm any night of the week, or Brad Maddock in the Student Activities room. Download the form here.
  2. It is highly recommended to climb with a spotter and to move bouldering pads appropriately to protect a fall when climbing.
  3. Climbers are responsible to be aware of their landing zone, any people below them and ensure the area is clear at all times while climbing.
  4. No more than three people climbing at any one time.
  5. No barefoot climbing. Climbing shoes are required and can be borrowed from the St. Charles CA staff from 7-10pm and day of the week. You will be asked to leave your Carroll Student ID and will get it back when the shoes return.
  6. Always be respectful and aware of other climbers on the wall. This includes not grabbing other climbers while they are on the wall, walking underneath them, or throwing objects at them.
  7. Please clean the room after you use it. Put trash in the garbage bag.
  8. Turn off the lights after use.
  9. Ensure the door is locked if you are the last person using the climbing room.
  10. Please contact if there are any loose holds or problems in the room, or if you would like to set routes and move holds around on the wall.
