As a local community business we are asking for your continued support and cooperation with these guidelines to help ensure we can continue to keep our doors open.

Please read carefully as there are new edits & updates

      • Online reservations close 5 minutes before session time.

    • Non-climbing parents are allowed to accompany minors (14 & under), and will no longer count towards the total occupation count and do not need to reserve their slot but will need a waiver, orientation, and to check-in.


  • Screening

    • All who enter must be symptom / fever free and will be asked to complete a set of screening questions prior to climbing.

    • Everyone in the facility must check-in and check-out so we can maintain accurate contact tracing ability.


  • Face Masks are REQUIRED at all times for anyone inside the building, including while you are climbing, if you cannot wear one or refuse to climb in a mask you will not be allowed in the facility.

    • No one will be allowed to enter the facility without a face mask, including Alchemy Climbing Staff, delivery drivers, parents, climbers etc.

    • We have a limited amount of free cloth masks available

    • Face masks must cover nose & mouth - please see the CDC Guidelines for more information.

  • Everyone must wash hands upon entering the facility, before check-in.

  • We will not be renting chalk bags at this time.

  • Yoga and fitness classes are currently cancelled.

  • Continue to practice social distancing measures while in the facility:

    • Please do not climb on top ropes or boulder routes within a 6 foot radius of other climbers and respect their climbing and falling space.

    • Please respect other 6 foot measures made around the facility such as cubbies, front desk & training 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 even absolutely disagree with them. As a small 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.
