We're so excited to have a reopening date for you! Following today's government announcement, we can confirm that we'll be reopening the centre from the 12th of April. It's been a long, dark winter and we just can't wait to see people climbing again.
The booking system will go live on Weds 7th April at 6am, and sessions will be available to book a week in advance from that point. All sessions will continue to need to be pre-booked, as previously. By far the best way to organise your bookings is through the RGPro Connect mobile app, which lets you book sessions, save your details, and cancel sessions where necessary. See link for more details.
Roadmap Step 2 restrictions
The new "Step 2" restrictions are very similar to those we previously had in Tier 2, which means that you should not arrange to meet people from outside your own household at the centre (or any other indoor space). Our café will also only be open for takeaway service. When in the centre, you should make sure to keep at least 2m apart from others not from your own household. We will continue to significantly restrict the capacity of the centre to allow everyone to do this.
Instructed sessions for U18s have been granted some exemptions from these rules, so the limited amount of youth instruction we have been able to restart since last July can continue as before. The bulk of our instructed groups (e.g. Boulder Academy sessions) are still on hold for the time being, unfortunately.
Help us keep the centre safe and open by following our main covid rules:
⛔ Roadmap Step 2: don't arrange to climb with people not from your own household
👨👩👧👦 Maintain 2m social distance from people not in your household at all times
💦 Wash or sanitise your hands on the way in, during your climb, and on the way out
