Remember, bouldering can be dangerous, don't be dumb. 
All Festival attendees must sign a waiver.
See the FAQs for refund policy.

** Attendance at the Festival entitles you to participate in the competition on Saturday. However, we are asking for a small donation to CliffCare. Because we love the work CliffCare does to ensure we can keep bouldering in the Gramps, entry to competition for Festival ticket holders is via a gold coin donation. We raise money, they represent us, we get to boulder. Everybody wins.

Every dollar that CliffCare receives goes towards maintaining access for boulderers and climbers.
