Located a short walk from Temple Meads, getting to Flashpoint Bristol is easy. Designed with climbers of all abilities in mind; from new climbers to those looking for incredible training facilities.

During the day we will be actively cleaning more than we used to in certain areas like the changing rooms and lockers.
The gym will be open but we will encourage you to sanitise your hands before you go in. And there will be some cleaning equipment in there (spray, etc) so you can clean the mats or bars if you wish. The fingerboards we’d rather you did not spray but we definitely want you to sanitise your fingers before using them.

But we can give you the best opportunity to keep your hands clean, by providing hand sanitiser and soap, and ensure the capacity is low enough that you can keep some distance from your friends and fellow climbers. ...
