Post re-opening updates 05/08/20

5 Aug 2020

We've been back open for almost 2 weeks and we have a few new updates.  You can see an up to date list of changes regarding COVID here.


Super Off-Peak Entry suspension from 10/08/2020

This was intended to help reduce our load at peak times by encouraging customers who were free in the daytime to come in at our quietest times, so with the world working a bit differently to pre-lockdown with more people working from home and on furlough it wasn't quite working as it used to!  We'll look at reintroducing something similar when we are in a position to do so.


New Unit E Opening Hours

Midweek 17:00 to 22:00
Weekends 10:00 to 20:00

We'll be able to offer more details on the why in the next few days.


New registrations

We're happy to welcome new registrations for experienced adult climbers and novices (adult or under 18) who will be supervised by an experienced climber.  We'd temporarily dissuaded this while we got used to the new systems in place.

We're still working on systems to safely offer Adult/14-17 Inductions, Mini Works Supervisory Inductions & Junior Assessments for new experienced 14 to 17 year olds, so these will be back as soon as possible.


New Mini Works booking options

We've added new Mini Works booking options online (here) for the following:

  • Under 5s supervised by an adult
    • Max 1:1 supervision ratio for U5s
  • Adult / 14-17 Year Old Unsupervised Climbers
    • For if you want to sign in to climb at Mini Works yourselves, or with an adult supervising U18s


Coached Sessions

We're starting to re-introduce coached sessions to regular attendees of our 9+ kids clubs and advanced sessions at first so we can ensure we're meeting social distancing and hygiene guidance.  We'll be reintroducing more sessions as we are able to do so in a safe and controlled manner.  If you already attended sessions prior to lock-down then we'll be in touch directly, otherwise please watch out for future announcements.
