Group Events

General:

If your group is looking for a thrilling outing, On The Rocks is the perfect place to visit! We can accommodate any type of group–businesses, schools, church groups, family, friends, clubs, birthday parties, etc. On The Rocks has climbing available for all ages and abilities.


All first-time guests will receive a short orientation on the different types of climbing we offer and will be shown safety tips prior to climbing. Rental gear is included for all climbers joining us as a group!

All guests must have a Waiver filled out prior to participating in the event. Parents/Guardians can fill out waivers here.

For scheduling purposes, we require a 2-week notice for any party booking.

All parties are scheduled as 2-hour time slots within our typical business hours. Parties can add additional hours to their scheduled time slot at an additional rate of $40/hour. Party start/end times cannot be within the first or last half hour of any given day unless an exception is made for special circumstances.

We require a down payment of $50 at time of booking. Remaining balance must be paid upon arrival. Payment for the remaining balance must be provided in one lump sum.

If a scheduled party is cancelled at least 10 days before the scheduled party is to take place, the $50 deposit will be refunded.
