Climbing 

The Breaks Interstate Park offers sandstone climbing similar to that of the New River Gorge and the Obed with spectacular views.

Climbers must obtain a permit and complete a waiver  to climb at Breaks, which must be renewed every calendar year.


Waiver

All climbers must renew their waiver each CALENDAR YEAR.  Waivers from 2019 are no longer valid.  Waivers can be filled out at the park in the Lodge or Adventure Center or online here.
