Frequently Asked Questions

Portable Wall FAQ

How many kids/people can climb at the same time?

2 climbers on 2 separate ropes can climb simultaneously.  We travel with many harnesses so there is no waiting once a climber finishes, the next climber is ready to go.

How many kids per hour can climb?

Our wall can handle 40-50 climbers per hour, depending on age.

Is there a weight limit?

There is no real lower limit. If a child is strong enough to pull themselves up the wall they can climb. We can help the younger climbers ascend to a certain degree. However, the child needs to do most of the work. We don’t recommend that people climb that are heavier than 225 lbs.

What is the rain policy?

If you cancel due to weather, you must cancel between 24 and 48 hours prior to delivery for a full refund. If you cancel at time of delivery, 50% of the rental is due. Once we start setting up the rock wall, 100% is due with no exceptions.

What if it rains or there is lightning?

Climbing can still be done during light rains.  However if there is any lightening or thunder, we will shut the wall down until a minimum 15 minutes has passed with no lightning or thunder.  There are no refunds due to weather conditions.

How much space is required to setup the rock wall?

The climbing wall while attached to the trailer itself is 28 feet long and 8 feet wide. The area needed to provide safe use for the climbers is another 4 feet on each side and 15 feet in front of the wall. There can be no overhead obstructions up to 30 feet’. In total the minimum space required is 55 feet long by 20 feet wide and 30 feet tall. Please allow additional area towards the front of the rock wall for crowds to gather and lines form.

How long does it take to set up?

The hydraulic lift system can get you climbing in less than 20 minutes.
