News - May 2011


We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you, our wonderful customers, for your continued patience and support over what have been an exceptionally difficult time.


From September 2nd we have revised COVID restrictions. 


Face Coverings:

We encourage and support customers to wear masks around the centre but it is not compulsory anymore to wear them.

The reception team will not obliged to wear a mask anymore but the screen will still be in place around the reception area.

Coaches will still have to wear masks on coached sessions as well as groups with participants aged 9 and above


Centre capacities:

With the removal of the very specific capacities from government guidance we will be cautiously increasing our centre capacities by 10%

The Climbing Works – 105 to 116 (sign out still required)

The Mini Works – 45 to 50 (slot bookings)

Unit E – 45 to 50


Social distancing:

The government guidance from 19th July means that there are no legal limits on indoor group size, but we still strongly encourage you to socially distance (2m where possible!) from people you don’t have frequent contact with anyway.

It is important that you continue to respect the space of anyone you have not mutually agreed that you are happy to be closer to or do not know.



We will continue to manage these risks and monitor them closely. In the event of significant new evidence and government announcements we will revise these new policies and not hesitate to put restrictions back in place.

5 May 2011 Emergency services and NHS bouldering Comp

Last November The Climbing Works held a friendly bouldering competition organised by Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS) for the paramedics that operate in the Yorkshire area, the event was open to participants of all abilities from complete beginners to regular climbers.

This year YAS are looking to hold a similar event during the summer and would like all local emergency and NHS services to be involved. We know many members of The Climbing Works are among those who work in these services so if you are interested in participating please leave your details below.

The format of the comp hasn’t been decided as of yet but will probably be a teamed and individual competition.
