Please wear walking or running shoes and comfortable, flexible clothing suitable for exercise. Please note that we will not have a changing space for climbers – please come ready to climb!
We don't let the weather stop us from climbing! We climb inside so the event will take place rain, snow or shine.
Yes, water and snacks will be available along the climb route in the rest areas. More refreshments will be available during the finish line party. You may want to eat something light before arriving as well. If you have dietary restrictions or needs, please plan accordingly. Drinks and snacks are not allowed in the stairwell.
All climbers will finish their climb on the 34th floor, inside The Helmsley Building, and then head to the after-party!

Climber safety is our utmost concern. Climbers can take as many breaks as necessary in the rest area. Medical personnel will be located in the rest areas, as well as stationed throughout the building. An elevator will be available to anyone who is not able to continue climbing stairs. Climbers are not required to finish their route, just to do the best they can. If you choose to discontinue your climb for any reason, we do ask that you leave the stairwell and go to a rest area, for your safety and the safety of other climbers.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate guests who are not registered for the event.
