We are doing everything we can to help keep all of our climbers safe during the pandemic.

We have put together a List of Frequently Asked Questions that will hopefully help.

Do I have to book?

Please enter through the large shutter at the front of the building.  Customers must also wash their hands and sanitise upon entry using the facilities provided.

YES!  However you must remember to complete your pre-registration form before you come to the centre.


How are we enforcing social distancing?

Government guidelines allow one person per 9sqm of floor space and we could conformably fit 60 people in the centre.  However we have reduced capacity to 30 to ensure all of our customers get ample space to enjoy their climb.  We will not be able to accept groups of over 6 in the centre in line with the new guidance.

We have set up designated hand sanitising stations throughout the centre, we encourage customers to use these as often as possible.

Yes, we have implemented a new waiver as recommended by the ABC that will last 3 years so will need all climbers to complete this for their first visit back.

Climbing Shoes are still available to rent out and these are thoroughly disinfected after each use filling our governing bodies guidance.
