big kid boulders.
the main gym is designed for climbers 12 years & over — we have a dedicated FamilyHaus for younger kids & families to climb together.
kids under 12 years can enjoy the slackline & hang out areas, but there’s no access to climbing areas in the main gym for their own safety & the safety of others.
pups are always welcome at BlocHaus — please make sure they’re supervised at all times, are on lead, off the mats & behaving appropriately.
we appreciate not everyone wants to get up close & personal & ask that you & your furry friend respect the space of others — dog owners may be asked to remove their dogs from the haus if they cannot abide by our puppy policy.
lost & found.
if you’ve left something behind, please contact us as soon as you can.
haus keeping hold onto lost items as long as they can, but the lost & found is cleared out on a monthly basis.
FamilyHaus is for climbers big & small, everyone must share the space accordingly — in particular, adult climbers in this area must be mindful of younger climbers.
key rules for kids.
- no running on the crash mats
- stay off the mats when you’re not climbing
