Thank you to everyone for being patient with us as we navigate our path to reopening! You will find below the changes and guidelines that we would like to make you aware of before coming to the facility.
To start, please visit the "Covid-19" page for some new overall Gravity Vault policies.
Here in Middletown, please remember that if you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, we request that you do not enter our facility until 72 hours have passed since you last experienced symptoms. A list of COVID-19 symptoms can be found here:
If you have not climbed at a Gravity Vault before, please remember to fill out a waiver just prior to your arrival. We will not have physical copies onsite.
RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED as we start the reopening process. Reservations are available to Members, Punch Pass holders, and Day Pass purchasers only. All staff-led programs are currently postponed. Climbing Team members can make reservations and practices will be starting in a modified format shortly.
UPDATE Staff Belays to be offered again starting Monday, July 20th. Spaces are limited and reservations are required. Please call to make a reservation prior to your arrival. Summer Rocks Camp is a week-long indoor rock climbing day camp, starting Monday, July 20th. Check our calendar for more information.
SIGNS will be posted at our entrances and our front desks to display current policies (which could change over time).
SOCIAL DISTANCING on the climbing floor means keeping 1 rope station in between climbing partners and 1 person in each bouldering section. 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 SANITZERS 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!
