We know many of our customers and their loved ones are at increased risk from Covid-19, so may be hesitant to return to climbing.

We are keen to make our centres as accessible as possible and so we are introducing dedicated time-slots which will run at a low-ratio, prior to our main opening hours. For now, these will be 10:00-12:30 on Thursdays, alternating between Redpoint and Flashpoint throughout August.The first session will be at Redpoint on Thursday 6th August. The slots will be bookable 1 week in advance.

If you or someone in your household has a health condition which would make our main opening hours difficult for you to attend at the moment, you can apply to be added to our shielding list here: Apply Now

Once your application has been accepted we will provide you with a private booking link for these time-slots. You will be able to book a friend or family member into climb with you, although we may review this policy if the slots become busy. You must not share the booking link with anyone else.

As many participants in these sessions will be at increased risk from Covid-19, we expect you to be especially mindful of our safety guidance. Access to these sessions will be conditional on this understanding.

As always, if you have any feedback on our safety measures or suggestions for how we can support you to return to climbing, please let us know.


We will open up in phases as follows.

25th & 26th July: Supporters Only (those that have supported us through lockdown will be emailed directly to arrange booking)

27th July Onwards: All adult climbers (must be pre-booked: members can book 7 days in advance, all others get 48hrs)

3rd August: Supervised children allowed (again with pre-booking)

There will be a lot of changes to make sure we can keep you all safe. Check the Re-Opening page to see ALL the adjustments.

Most important is to make sure you BOOK ONLINE before arrival!!!

We will open up our online booking system one week before opening. 

We can’t wait to see you again!
