Climber Etiquette

To ensure the safety of all climbers, please be courteous while climbing. If you need to pass another climber, make your intention known before attempting to pass. The use of headphones is not encouraged as to allow you to hear other climbers and volunteers around you.

Firefighter Gear Requirements

Climbers registered in the Firefighter Division are required to climb in full gear including helmet, boots, and tank. Being on air during the Climb is optional.

Water Stations

Water stations are located throughout the venue. There will be a rest stop and water station along the route.

Safety Procedures

Trained medical personnel will be located throughout Hartford 21 in case you need assistance. Volunteers will also be available at the water stations.


Climbers must be at least 10 years old to participate. Any climber under the age of 18 must climb with an adult (age 18 years or older) and must not be left alone under any circumstances. For adults who climb at a faster pace, please note that your child may not be left unattended while you climb, so make arrangements accordingly. Due to building regulations and to ensure your safety and that of your child, child-toting is not allowed.

Awards & After Party

We are so excited for the return of our post-Climb celebration at our new location Vaughan’s Irish Public House starting at 9:00 am.

We appreciate the hard work and dedication of every climber and team who has competed and raised money to fight lung disease. Participants and teams who have placed in their division and have gone above and beyond with their fundraising efforts will be recognized. All racing categories will be awarded on event day. Top fundraisers will be celebrated after the fundraising deadline.
