Minimum Age Requirement

Anyone can participate in an Over The Edge event. People in their 80s and 90s rappel! The only restriction is that anyone under the age of 18 requires a parent or guardian signature on the legal waiver.

Weight Requirement

Over The Edge’s equipment safety standards require that people must be between 100 and 300 lbs in order to safely rappel.

Do I need to have experience to participate?

Not at all! I’ve included a document provided by Over The Edge on what to expect on event day! This document will tell you everything you need to know about the process from registration to the roof and back down again!

Event Day

What should I wear to the event?

Dress comfortably! Do not wear overly loose or baggy clothing, or clothing with long drawstrings. Wear soft-soled, close-toed shoes or sneakers.

Can I wear a costume?

Costumes are allowed but are subject to the same limitations as baggy clothing. Every attempt will be made to safely fit costumes around harnesses and helmets. As with shorts, it is ultimately the decision of the Site Safety Supervisor. Stringy, loose, or excessive costumes must be avoided. Head pieces that will not accommodate a helmet, obscure the vision, or are notably large or heavy will rarely be allowed.
