News - April 2015


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.

28 Apr 2015 Community Acton Nepal: Earthquake Appeal

The recent earthquake in Nepal has seen some incredible destruction in a beautiful country with a proud history of climbing. The BMC have produced an excellent article on the many charities operating in the area and how you can support their different appeals.

If you are wishing to donate some money to the appeal The Climbing Works has placed donation buckets at the front reception desks of both our centres with all donations going to Community Action Nepal - a charity that has been active in the mountain communities of Nepal for 2 decades. Founded by Doug Scott OBE, CAN have helped the people of the mountain communities through enabling simple, but vital projects – such as setting up and maintaining village schools and medical posts and the instillation of clean drinking water. Post Earthquake they will be helping these areas for months and likely years as they rebuild and restart. 

If you wish to help, the donation buckets are there for any change you may have.
