CLIMBING IS INHERENTLY DANGEROUS! It is impossible to eliminate all risks associated with climbing. Our goal is to minimize your risk, but ultimately you must assume full responsibility for your participation by signing our liability waiver.

Cancellation Policy

Please read the following carefully, contact the office with any questions before booking. 

*Note: Our Courses and Guided Trips are RARELY cancelled due to inclement weather. Due to the large rock overhangs, roofs, and rock amphitheaters common in Red River Gorge, we can often climb even during a rain storm. Your guide will contact as soon as possible if your trip needs to be cancelled due to inclement weather.

  • Customers will not receive a refund for cancellations within 48 hours.

  • Customers will receive a 50% refund for a booking that cancels prior to 48 hours in advance and within a 7 day period.

  • Customers will receive a full refund for cancellations prior to 7 days, or cancelled by Bluegrass Climbing School due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.*

  • Trips can also be rescheduled one week in advance to another available day free of charge.

  • All gift certificates and credits expire one year from the date issued.

Trip Insurance

We highly suggest you look into ‘trip insurance’ from one of the several independent providers available on the internet as this can protect you from losing your money if you have to cancel your booking at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances.
