Ensuring all sessions are COVID safe is our main priority.

We have risk assessed and designed each session to minimise contact while maintaining our high levels of safety, engagement and enjoyment.

Please see below for the key messages and procedures we have in place to ensure our sessions are COVID safe:

  • Staff will wear face coverings at all times
  • Customers will be required to wear a face covering at all times unless actively climbing
  • Each customer will be issued with their own personal kit for the duration of the session.  In the event that any equipment needs to be shared it will be sanitised between uses.
  • All equipment is cleaned/quarantined after each use
  • Wherever possible 2 metres distance will be maintained between group members (unless in same household or under 12) and between group and instructor.  Any times where 2 meteres cannot be maintained, face coverings will be worn and time spent in close contact will be minimal 
  • Instructors will sanitise hands reguarly including before and after issuing or handling kit 
  • Customers will be required to sanitise hands on entry, exit, prior to and after fitting kit and before and after each climb
