As a local business we are asking for your continued support and cooperation with these guidelines to help ensure we can continue to keep our doors open. Besides these temporary policies all of us will be continuing to do our part through increased cleaning and sanitation efforts of high touched areas.

      • We recommend keeping to one climbing partner per day and try to climb with fellow household members.
      • We encourage everyone to continue to practice good hygiene throughout their climbing session, wash and/or sanitize hands before, during, and after climbing and do not touch your face, mouth and eyes.
      • Please do not lay on the floor.
    • Anyone that does not respect and follow these temporary policies, or any standard facility rules, will be asked to leave.

We understand these are not ideal policies for everyone and you may disagree with them. As a local community gym these are the policies we currently feel comfortable, for our climbers and staff, in order to remain open. We ask for your patience, understanding and respect during this time. Please understand things may change rapidly including additional closures or limitations. Climbing during covid-19, as with all aspects of climbing, has risks and only you know the risks you are comfortable taking at any given time. Stay educated and informed and we hope to see you all on the wall in the near future.
