Thank you all so much for your patience and support during this difficult time.
Health and government officials in the states of Rhode Island & Massachusetts are entrusting fitness communities to reopen in a limited capacity to help businesses like ours provide our services.
The safety of our community is our top priority. We are all in this together and while we will eventually get back to climbing as we did before the pandemic, we must all do our part now to help each other manage the risk from this virus.
The following protocols were developed to adhere to the guidelines developed by Rhode Island & Massachusetts health and government officials and will allow all of us to climb together. For the safety of our staff and community, we ask that you read and comply fully with these protocols as they are required to use our facilities during this initial opening phase.
ALL locations OPEN to ALL CLIMBERS
No reservation necessary
Climbers must agree to follow all of our protocols to ensure the safety of our community from the pandemic. Each location will have a set capacity limit set by health & government officials. Gym volume can always be checked by either visiting the homepage or selecting the gym below to access a capacity widget. For this purpose, we ask all climbers and guests to check out at the front desk before leaving the gym.
As changes occur, we will keep these protocols up to date and there is no guarantee that we will remain open. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented time and look forward to climbing with you all again.
Mask policy update
As per Boston mask mandates, MASKS ARE REQUIRED BY EVERYONE AT ALL TIMES at our Boston-Dedham and South Boston locations
Masks are REQUIRED FOR EVERYONE in our Rhode Island facilities during After School & Weekend Youth Programs to provide a safe environment for vulnerable climbers and youth UNDER 12 years of age. When there are no Youth Programs, ALL FULLY VACCINATED INDIVIDUALS are welcome to remove their masks, but we still recommend masks continue to be worn per CDC guidelines.
Besides competitive youth team practices EVERY FRIDAY from 5:30PM – 7:45PM, mask use will continue to be optional for ALL FULLY VACCINATED INDIVIDUALS AT ALL OTHER TIMES at our Providence, RI facility.
We are excited that this is a step towards getting back to normal operations and life for most of our staff and climbers but we also recognize that many of our climbers, including our summer youth program members are not able to receive vaccines at this time.
We are committed to providing a comfortable environment for our entire community, including youth climbers and our most vulnerable community members.
Thank you all for helping us manage the risk of our staff and community during this difficult time. As state governments provide further guidance and data, we will continue making updates to our policies through this transitional period. While we are confident we will eventually get back to climbing the way it was before all of this, we still have a long way to go. The only way we’ll get there is to do it together.
