Reopening Plan

What Reopening Looks Like:

We are beyond psyched to see you scaling our walls again!


We are now open to the public! New policies and procedures will be implemented to protect our guests, staff, and the community. We thank you for taking the time to fully understand and make good practice of these policies upon our reopening.

Please continue reading to see what to expect.

Member Hours: 6:00am-8:00am
Open to public: 8:00am-9:00pm
Open to public: 8:00am - 8:00pm

Membership Status

First and foremost, we want to make sure you understand where your membership status stands upon reopening. All memberships that were frozen before and during the closure will REMAIN frozen until you tell us otherwise.

Starting July 1st, our regular freeze fee of $7/month will be reinstated.

If you would like to remain frozen, you do not need to take any further action. If you would like to unfreeze, please do that before entering the building on your first day back. *Link Below*

Health and Safety Procedures

Our number one priority is to make sure we are doing all we can to mitigate any possible health risks while at the facility. This is a gym and one that has many shared surfaces (climbing holds and all). There are steps that can be taken to reduce possible contamination and/or exposure to Covid-19. Most of these steps are required by the law, but we are also choosing to take the conservative approach on many policies until more is known about the spread of this virus.

Please know these new policies well before deciding to come our facility. It is important that we all look out for each other and do our best to keep each other healthy and climbing!

1How do you feel?

Any person who is feeling sick or experiencing symptoms related to Covid-19, or who has recently been exposed to someone who may have been infected, will not be allowed to come to the gym.

  • Symptoms include but are not limited to: fever, cough, shortness of breath, recent loss of taste or smell, or any other respiratory illness symptoms.
2Social Distancing

All participants will be expected to by abide social distancing guidelines with all other climbers, guests, and staff members.

The climbing area will be marked off in approx 12' sections to provide this guidance.

3Face Coverings

All persons must wear a face covering upon entry to the gym and face coverings must be worn at all times, unless it inhibits a climbers ability to exercise. Meaning, you may pull down you face mask while climbing only. If your feet are on the ground, your mask must be on.

  • No masks are required for children 3 and under.
  • Please bring your own masks. We will be selling Ascent Bandanas as face coverings!
4Handing Washing Guidelines

Wash your hands regularly.

  • All climbers must wash their hands before entering the building at our new outdoor washing station.
  • Washing or sanitizing intermittently during your climbing session and immediately after is also strongly encouraged.
5Rental Gear

We will again be offering rental gear beginning June 22. We will be rotating our gear on an every other day schedule to allow for proper cleaning. This will mean we have a smaller quantity of available rental gear. Please understand there is a possibility of running out on a busy day.

6Checking In and Out Required

All visitors must check in and check out. This will allow us to aid the health department with contact tracing if that is necessary.

Reservation Procedures

We no longer require a reservation, but we do still recommend them for our peak hours (Weekdays 5pm-8pm). If you make a reservation you are guaranteed a spot. If you are a walk-in, you will likely get right in.

You can check our occupancy counter before you arrive. Our max capacity is 100 people and we have yet to hit capacity. However, if our occupancy is already at 50, we suggest calling the front desk to check on climbing slot availability for the upcoming hours.

For ease in booking you may want to download the RGPro Connection app on your smartphone. The app will also allow you to present your barcode on your phone for checking in.

1Update/Purchase Ahead of Time

Be sure to update your membership status or buy your punch card to help facilitate your arrival at the gym.

2Time Slots

Reservations are for 2 hour sessions of climbing time and check-ins are in 30 minute intervals to help reduce the number of people arriving at the gym at any given time.

3Late/No Shows/Walk-ins

People who do not show within 20 minutes of their reservation will be considered a no-show.

  • You may still drop in late and see if there is a slot available.
  • If you cannot make it for your scheduled sessions, please call the gym 970-999-5596 and cancel your reservation to make sure that spot is available for someone else.

We will be taking walk-ins if there is available openings. You may be asked to wait until space opens.
