Packet pickup will open from 8am and close at 10am. Please make sure you arrive between those times. If you are “Climbing Your Way” please contact an ALA staff member for alternative pickup instructions. There will be gear check onsite. Please leave all loose items at gear check or with a non-climbing companion while you climb. No loose items, including water bottles, will be permitted inside the stairwell as they are considered a very dangerous hazard if they were to fall from your possession. Climbing will begin at 9am with the course closing at 10:30am.

Climber Etiquette

To ensure the safety of all climbers, please be courteous while climbing. If you need to pass, please make sure to pass along the wall side of the stairwell.

Water Stations

Water stations are located throughout the venue and at pre-determined floors within the stairwell.

Safety Procedures

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


Climbers must be at least 12 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.


We appreciate the hard work and dedication of every climber and team who has raised money to fight lung disease. Participants and teams who have gone above and beyond will be recognized. Awards will be announced event weekend and details will be provided to winners for pick up. More details to be announced closer to the event.
