Is rental equipement available to rent?
At the moment, harnesses and climbing shoes are available to rent. Chalkbags are not. Climbing shoes are sprayed with 99% alcohol to disinfect them after every use and aired out to dry for 24hrs. Climbing harnesses are cycled to dry and put back into circulation after a 48hr quarentine period. Due to the communial nature of rental chalk bags and inability to clean and disinfect, chalk bag rentals are not availabe.
Will liquid chalk be mandatory?
Although not clinically proven at this time, liquid chalk contains a high alcohol content that can help to reduce the spread of the virus. In addition, it reduces the amount of airborne particles in the air improving the air quality of the facility. We will be monitoring our traffic levels to determine if this is neccessary. We ask that all visitors be considerate with the use of chalk and avoid accessive use and spread. Chalk bags are not availble for rent at the moment and we ask climbers not to share chalk.
If I book for bouldering, can I use other areas during my visit?
In order to perform effective contact tracing, we are asking visitors to stay in the areas they have booked for. After each session, the areas are cleaned and disinfected by our staff and open wandering can lead to greater cross contamination. We will assess this as traffic incrases and adjust if neccessary.
Can I book back to back sessions in two seperate areas?
Unfortunately this is not available to start. We would like to give as many members as possible a fair opportunity to return to climbing.
