    SAFETY PROTOCOLS AND PROCEDURES

    Please read this page thoroughly to understand our policies, safety protocols, and procedures. We’re committed to offering everyone a return to rock climbing while ensuring the safety of our customers and staff.

    It’s our hope that adhering to these policies will allow us to open to the public with the least possible amount of risk, but none of it can happen without your cooperation! We ask for everyone’s patience as we get through this together, and look forward to seeing you soon.

    • The gym will undergo a thorough cleaning every evening after close
    • Please use hand sanitizing stations found around the gym as well as our new hand washing sink located next to the main entry to keep your hands clean while at the gym
