Climbing Wall Inspections

Better safe than sorry.

Inspections are key to minimizing risk and protecting a major physical asset.

Regular inspections:

  • Identify issues with the surface and framework of the wall as well as flooring and equipment.
  • Provide insight into risk management, operations, and programming.
  • Offer an opportunity to discuss possible wall, facility, operation, and programming improvements.
  • Keep your facility in compliance with some insurance requirements and regional regulations.
The Climbing Wall Association (CWA) has established best-practice guidelines for inspections.
  • The inspection should be conducted by an outside party.
  • Outdoor walls should be inspected every 2 years minimum.
  • Indoor walls should be inspected every 4 years minimum.
