Things to Know When Climbing with Kids at Sender One

We are so excited to welcome kids into Sender One and the world of climbing! But first, we would love to go over some guidelines and FAQ’s to ensure that every climber in the gym is having a fun and safe experience.


Bouldering is a very specific type of climbing in which there are no ropes involved. This means that climbers take a lot of unexpected falls. If other guests in the gym are not paying attention to their surroundings, it could result in serious injury. We recommend that kids are ages 6 or over to try bouldering. 

It is extremely important that parents and guardians follow these safety guidelines while their child(ren) climb: 

  • All kids under the age of 14 need a parent or guardian in the facility at all times
  • Parents/Guardians must stay within 6 feet of their child at all times
  • We have a strict 2:1 ratio policy: There needs to be one adult present for every two kids in the facility
  • Everyone needs to have a waiver completed prior to climbing on the walls (even if you are not climbing)

Please make sure that your child(ren) abide by the following rules and etiquette: 

  • Be courteous to others around you
  • Look out for climbers when walking by a wall or starting a climb
  • Absolutely NO running, roughhousing, tumbling, or yelling 
  • Absolutely NO climbing under/over or too close to other people (if you can touch the person climbing next to you, you are too close!)

These rules are necessary to help keep everyone as safe as possible and they apply to everyone in the facility. If more than two warnings have to be issued to a parent/guardian, the family’s climbing time may be cut short and they will politely be asked to come back another day.


Can kids climb at Sender One Westwood?

Yes! Kids under 14 are welcome to climb by booking one of our Coach Climb sessions or with parental supervision during our kids hours. Westwood is a bouldering only location--no rope climbing or Sender City--, so if you and your family are new to climbing we recommend checking out our LAX location for more beginner kid friendly climbing options.

How old do kids have to be to climb?

Kids can climb at any age! That being said, we find that most kids enjoy climbing at Westwood once they are 14 or older. For kids younger than 14 who are new to climbing, we recommend checking out our LAX location which has an interactive climbing area call Sender City. For kids 6 and up who are interested in trying climbing at Westwood, we recommend our Coach Climb sessions which are a great introduction to climbing in a bouldering only gym. Please make sure to book in advance!

When are kids hours?

Kids hours are daily before 5pm, and we require a minimum ratio of 1 adult to every 2 kids.

What is bouldering?

Bouldering is a type of climbing that does not require ropes. Our climbs at Westwood range from 12-18ft tall and have a padded floor beneath them. 

Does Sender One Westwood have a Sender City?

This location does not offer a Sender City or rope climbing. However, you can book a Sender City session at our nearby location, Sender One LAX.

Do you offer kids birthday parties?

Yes! We do offer private birthday parties for kids 6 and above on Saturday mornings from 9a to 10a for up to 10 kids for $369.  We do not have any spaces currently for kids birthday parties outside this period.  For parties outside this time slot, please book your event at our LAX location.
