Below you will find updates regarding the new measures we have put in place to keep our staff and customers safe whilst at the centre.
02/04/21 – We are pleased to announce that we will be re-opening from 12pm Monday 12th April. Please be reminded that all previous procedures listed below will remain in place.
30/12/20 – The centre unfortunately will be closed for the 3rd lockdown. If you have paid upfront for an annual membership, we will freeze your memberships until the centre opens again. If you pay a monthly direct debit, you can choose to cancel this or or become a Lockdown Loyalty Member by keeping up your payments to support the wall. Monthly memberships should receive an email from us with regards your options, should you not hear from us by then, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
16/10/20 – We are feeling very lucky that gyms can now remain open in Lancashire, however this does mean there are some additional control measure in place to help us stay open as well as adhere to government guidelines to help reduce the spread of the virus. We are asking all customers to:
Wear a face Covering – at all times within the centre, this includes moving around on the mats and in between climbs. You DO NOT need to wear it whilst actually climbing. The only other exceptions are if seated eating or drinking and for those who are exempt (under 11 s and reasonable medical condition that prevents you from wearing one).
Not to climb with anyone outside your household – at the centre unless they are in your bubble.
Pay attention to our capacity – We have signage around the centre which indicates the maximum number of people in each area. We are often reaching our full capacity during the week at our peak times around 7pm to 8pm which may mean you have to wait as we operate a 1 in 1 out system. This wait is usually no more that 10 to 15 minutes. We now have a pager system available to allow you to wait in your car should the weather be bad!
Symptoms – We please ask anyone who has symptoms or has been to a country on the quarantine list to not to visit the wall until they have finished self isolating.
Booking – Although it is not currently essential to book in for public climbing, we do ask you to ensure you stay no longer than 2.5 hours.
Please take some time to read through our new protocols before your first visit so that you are aware of the changes to our conditions of use. These can be found below.
