Is there a limit on how many people can be in the gym?
Yes. 50 people is the maximum occupancy for the gym at any given time. This may change at some point, but for now this is what we will be requiring. There also will be limited capacity in specified areas of the gym. IE: the bouldering area, fitness area, systems wall area, etc.

- Main Gym

Areas that will be CLOSED:
- Yoga Room
- Room of Doom (Kids Room Downstairs)

Do I have to make reservations?
Reservations are not required but are encouraged. You may look at our occupancy counter on our home page and decide to come in spontaneously if we are not at max occupancy, however reservations take precedence over drop ins.
If I do make a reservation for my child, do I need to make one for myself if I am not climbing?
Yes, everyone in the gym must be accounted for even if you are not climbing. A non-member parent/guardian can make a reservation as long as they are supervising/belaying a child who is a member.
Can I bring my child into the gym?
You may bring your child into the gym if they are a member and are climbing with your direct supervision. For the health and safety of our members and your children, we are asking you to please not bring your child to the gym if they are not climbing.
Will you be running youth programs?
We will be running team in the mornings when the gym is closed to the public. This schedule will change once school commences. Please contact Coach Chuck Curry for details. firstname.lastname@example.org
Will rentals be available?
Rentals will not be available when we first open. This may change, but for now they will not be. Please bring in your own gear. If you do not have gear, we will have gear available for purchase in our Pro Shop.
Will chalk be allowed?
Liquid chalk will be allowed and available for rent or purchase. For now we will not be permitting loose chalk. While our understanding of COVID-19 transmission is constantly evolving, it is believed that airborne transmission is the primary way the virus is spread. By eliminating loose chalk, we are aiming to limit airborne dust.
Will cardio and weights be available?
Yes. We will be spacing out the equipment to keep in compliance with physical distancing requirements. We will be providing disinfectant wipes and ask that you please wipe down all equipment you use after use. We will also be frequently cleaning equipment throughout the day.
Will yoga and fitness classes be available?
No. Yoga and group fitness classes will not be available for some time. We will continue to offer yoga online on a limited basis. Please click here for more info.
Will I be required to wear a mask while climbing?
Yes. We know this isn’t an easy ask of you all, but we’ve made this decision to prioritize the health of our team members and community. Studies show that airborne droplets are the primary driver for spreading COVID-19, so to minimize the risk of the spread of COVID-19, the CDC recommends wearing a mask.
