Climbers are expected to maintain good social distancing and in general remain 6 feet apart at all times. Exceptions are made for those climbing with others from their household.
CLEANING PROCEDURES have been updated to reflect the COVID-19 pandemic.
HAND SANITIZERS will be placed throughout the gym. Folks are asked to hand sanitize upon entry to the gym, before starting a climb and after finishing one.
LIQUID CHALK is currently allowed and is highly encouraged. The gym will have liquid chalk for purchase in retail.
MASKS REQUIRED for anyone in the building, per government mandate and company policy.
We understand there will be members of the community who feel these precautions are too restrictive. We also understand that there will be others who feel these precautions don't go far enough. As climbers we must always err on the side of safety, while understanding that risk can never be eliminated from the sport we love. We are doing our best to keep our community safe and healthy.
With that, we are always open to your voices and feedback. Thank you again for your continued support! We are so excited to get you back climbing!
