Tower Climb Rules

Welcome to the Elliott Tower Climb

By participating in the Elliott Tower Climb, you are agreeing to:

  • Follow the directions of Tower volunteers at all times.
  • Stay in accessible areas at all times. Do not attempt to go beyond ropes or markers or attempt to climb ladders.
  • Not touch electrical equipment, switches or instruments.
  • Not bring large bags or purses into the Tower. If you have them, please leave them with the volunteer at the bottom of the Tower. Volunteers do not accept responsibility for lost or stolen items.
  • Be aware that there are approximately eight flights of narrow, one-way stairs, tight spaces and heights - please do not attempt the climb if any of these are a concern for you.
  • Be respectful of the safety of others – no rough-housing or pushing while in the Tower.
  • Dress appropriately – open-toe and high-heel shoes are prohibited. 

Tower guides and volunteers may refuse entry or escort out anyone breaking the rules or if there are any safety concerns such as inclement weather, individuals under the influence, etc.
