05 Feb 2021 – As you may know, the new health orders issued by Dr. Bonnie Henry on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic have been extended. We have revised our Covid safety plan and submitted it to BC Health for approval to re-open and have received confirmation that we are able to reopen with restrictions.
Within the revisions of our Covid safety plan we are implementing a mandatory mask policy while outside the climbing space and although recommended in the climbing space, masks will not be required while climbing. Social distancing everywhere in the building is required. Party rooms will not be available for the duration of the order.
We’re being as proactive as possible and constantly assessing the risks. We would like to share with you the additional measures and precautions we’re taking to best ensure the well-being of all our climbers and employees.
BEFORE YOU BOOK
If anyone has recently traveled overseas, been unwell or been in contact with someone with a suspected or known case of COVID-19, we ask that they come for a climb at another time, for the safety of our crew and climbers.
Waivers should be completed online prior to arrival as to avoid unnecessary contact on-site.
The vertical drop slide is closed until further restrictions are lifted. The leap of faith will only be available on weekends.
Cheap Tuesdays, Clip’n Dine Thursday and Adult Climb Fridays will not be in effect until further restrictions are lifted.
Group bookings of 11+ climbers will not be permitted with some exceptions (school excursions).
ONLINE BOOKING RECOMMENDED
We have reduced each session’s capacity from 30 to 10, so it is important that you book in advance to avoid disappointment. If you choose not to book, unfortunately we we cannot guarantee you a place in the session. Gift Vouchers are still available online and will be instantly emailed to you.
For ticket purchases onsite, cashless payments are the preferred method of payment.
Spectators: While we usually don’t have a cap on spectators, we ask they do not attend, especially grandparents or other high-risk individuals.
