General Rules – Updated 06/06/2023:

Youths holding drill drivers
  1. Anyone in the building needs to have a waiver on file
  2. Anyone in the building under the age of 18 needs to have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian on file
  3. Posted policies and signs should be followed at all times, understand that rules may change based on the needs of the business and we will do our best to keep you updated
  4. Conduct yourself as an ideal Paddie: safe, non-threatening, and encouraging in and OUT of the gym environment
  5. Ultimately YOU are responsible for your own safety and enjoyment. Rock climbing and weight training are inherently risky. We do our best to mitigate risks posed by equipment, but risks will always exist. Equipment fails, but more often humans fail. By continuing to use the facility, you acknowledge this fact
  6. Leave it nicer than you found it – help clean up trash or arrange the magazines

Membership privileges:

  1. Access is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, that includes access on holidays and when the gym is unstaffed, occasionally we may have technical issues that prevent access, but we will do our best to make sure you have access
  2. Non-Members are welcome to visit during our staffed hours ONLY – bringing in a non-member outside of these hours subjects you to a fine, membership suspension, or outright ban
  3. Care for the facility whether staffed or unstaffed – save energy by turning off unnecessary fans, music, and lights at night; notify management of broken or unsafe things on an incident form
