We understand that our customers who are shielding cannot come at a time to climb when we are full to current capacity, making our popular evening and weekend sessions are not possible.

When we opened up after lockdown, we did so with limited opening times as this means we can keep staff in safe working bubbles.

To accommodate shielding customers we ran a shielding session in the mornings on Thursdays in August. This was shielding-specific and we hope it helped to transition people back into climbing in a comfortable way. But unfortunately we cannot continue this shielding specific session into the winter.

However, on Thursday and Fridays (starting 10th Sept) we are going to open up at 10:30am in Flashpoint Bristol. This session will not be shielding specific but will naturally be a fairly quiet time that we hope will be acceptable to all but the most vulnerable of climbers.

There will be a “toddler bounce” session happening in the other half of the building, but that should be in full flow before you arrive leaving the entrance clear for climbers.

We hope these early sessions work out for our customers who are having to be especially careful at this time.
