How does the Play Climb work?
The Play Climb is a safe and controlled environment anchored by a self-belay system that is supervised by trained Highlands Sports staff. Participants wear full body harnesses with carabiners while climbing and using the self-belay system.
Are there safety protocols in place?
Yes, first, all Highlands Sports Play Climb attendants are properly trained and certified to supervise the climbing area. Second, participants are required to complete a pre-climb training overview that covers an introduction to the self-belay system, safety regulations, and instruction on how to put on the harness. Before climbing begins, our trained staff ensures each participant is safely and properly strapped into their harness.
Are helmets required?
Helmets are only required on the following obstacles: Skyscraper Walk, Jump in the Air, and Geometrix. The remaining walls do not require a helmet, but participants may wear the entire time upon request.
