Helmet Waiver

This form is for instructed sessions consisting of lead climbing. Helmets are always worn when learning to lead climb and until the parent or guardian gives explicit consent to climb without one.

Helmets are essential while the climber is learning to lead as there is a much greater chance of inverting during a fall due to getting a leg trapped behind the rope. As the climber gains experience and learns good practice this risk is reduced but not completely removed. Wearing helmets is not standard among experienced climbers in indoor centres. For more information about when and why helmets are used please talk to your instructor or email fic@foundryclimbing.com.
"I, the parent or guardian, give consent for the under 18 in my care to lead climb without a helmet."
