Want to organize a group event at Island Rock Gym? We offer discounted rates for groups of 10 people or more with options for private belayers to manage your ropes. Have a smaller group? Give us a call at (206) 451-4020 to see what we can do.

Group Rates 

  • Adult (14 and older): $15.50
  • Youth (13 and under): $13.00 
  • Belayer/Supervisor: $35/hr/belayer

Ratio Requirements 

  • Groups may not exceed a ratio of 1 belayer to 8 climbers (while we require a ratio of 1:8, we advise a ratio of 1:5). 
  • Groups may not exceed a ratio of 1 adult to 5 youth (13 and under). 
  • These ratios can be met by supplying your own supervisors and/or qualified belayer(s) or by reserving IRG Staff supervisors or belayers. 
  • All climbers 13 and under must be supervised by an adult.
  • Adult supervision is required for any climber(s) in the Bouldering Room.
  • Groups are required to use belayers to avoid monopolizing the Bouldering Room.
