  • You no longer have to book! You can come to climb whenever you like. Please check our real-time climber counter to see when we are busy.
  • You don’t have to wear a mask whilst in the centre any more. We do recommend that you do, particularly when in close contact with others. We will be recommending that our staff continue to wear masks when in close proximity to other staff and customers. Please ask us if you would like us to wear a mask.
  • There is no longer a one way system. You can move around the centre in any direction you please! (Just please be respectful of others’ space.)
  • You an order food from the cafe counter again. We will still be keeping our ordering app if you’d still prefer to use this.

How To Come Climbing

Personal health

This may go without saying but please take a moment to really consider your own health before visiting. If you or anyone you have been in contact with have any of the COVID-19 symptoms identified here on the government website then ensure you have fully followed the appropriate guidelines for self-isolation.

We will be checking everyone’s temperature with an infrared thermometer. Please don’t be offended if a member of the team asks you about your current or recent health. This is all part of our due diligence to keep us all safe.

Come down for a climb!

You no longer have to book to climb, just come down for a climb whenever you like (like the good old days!) There may sometimes be a queue at our peak times (Mon – Thurs 6-8pm) but if that’s the case, it won’t take long to get in. You might just want to check our real-time climber counter at the top of this page before you come down.

*Remember: If you walk or cycle down you get a free cuppa on us!*

Changing & Showers

We have small changing rooms, so please try to arrive in the clothes you’d like to climb in. If you would like to change then please use either the changing room or showers whilst taking care to maintain social distancing.

The showers will be open as usual and cleaned regularly. If you can wait to shower at home then great, but we’re more than happy for you to freshen up with us too.

Please note: You will still be able to hire shoes with us on your visit.

Face Coverings

You no longer have to wear a face mask whilst in the centre. We do recommend that you do, particularly when in close contact with others. We will be encouraging our staff to wear masks when in close proximity with other staff members and customers. PLEASE ask us to wear a mask if you would like us to!

Hand washing and sanitisation

Please ensure you sanitise your hands when entering the centre, either using the provided alcohol gel or washing in the toilet basins. Then repeat this before and after visiting the cafe seating area or any breaks you have from climbing.

There are also hand sanitisation stations around the centre and we encourage you to use them every single time you pass them. Your hands must be regularly sanitised throughout your session.

In addition, please do your best at all times to not touch your face.

Liquid chalk Liquid Chalk with a 70% or higher alcohol content is for sale in the shop. We strongly recommend you use this regularly throughout your climbing. More information on this is available in the shop.

Taking breaks

Bouldering is a strength-based activity and we know this means we need to take breaks. We have an awesome café full of tasty hot and cold drinks and food, including freshly made rustic pizzas and ice cold milkshakes! Simply take a seat, order from our online menu and one of our friendly staff will bring your refreshments over to you! Alternatively you could order from the cafe counter! Remember to wash your hands before and after you take a break with one of our handy cleaning stations placed around the centre!
