House Rules Climbing is risky business - be smart about it!


Bouldering is a high-risk activity. Even though standard indoor climbing industry security measures have been put in place, certain risks cannot be eliminated without compromising the particular characteristics of bouldering. These characteristics can result in accidental injury, illness, or in extreme cases, permanent injury or death.

Shakti House Rules

  • All participants must check-in at the front desk upon entering.
  • All participants must leave their shoes/boots on the shoe rack at the entrance. No street shoes in house, please.
