We’ve been hard at working preparing to reopen. We have been doing a deep clean of facility and resetting plenty of rope and boulder climbs. We’ve also been ventilating the gym regularly by the use of the large overhead garage doors. We will also be spray sanitizing the walls daily.

We look forward to seeing you soon!



Like other organizations, we are taking steps to try to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We have increased the cleaning frequency of the touchable surfaces, fitness equipment, bathrooms, front desk, and other common areas in our facility.

A frequent topic of interest is the cleaning / sanitizing of the climbing holds. Each time the holds are taken down, they are cleaned / sanitized before being put back on the wall. However, it is not feasible to clean every hold daily or in between each customer's use. So, it is important to wash your hands prior to climbing and immediately after you are finished. Anytime one is climbing they should be careful to not touch their face, eyes, nose, or mouth, as holds are used by a climber's hands and shoes.

The following are some of the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for staying healthy and preventing the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) :

• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
• Use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 70% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
• Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
• Cover your cough or sneezes with a tissue or elbow.
• Avoid contact with those who are sick.
• Avoid handshaking, high-fives, and hugs – use other non-contact methods of greeting.
• Stay at home if you are feeling sick or have a sick family member in your home.

Throughout this time we will remain flexible with any reservation or membership requests. If you have any questions, changes you wish to make, or concerns that you wish to address with us please call us for the most timely response.
