We are very supportive of the next generation of climbers. That being said, La Roca is a gym tailored to adults. That means our routes are set with an average adults’ body in mind. Children may therefore have difficulty with reaching holds and a 5 metre fall is much greater for kids, making the likelihood and severity of injury much higher. That is why we have a minimum age of 16 to use our facilities. All climbers under the age of 18 must also have the legal waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian.
