Health and Safety Info & Policies
Our priority is to make sure we are doing everything we should to mitigate health risks to patrons in our facility. We are abiding by all of the Larimer County health guidelines, including requiring the wearing of masks or face coverings at all times when in the building. Please partner with us in helping to keep our community safe. It is important that we all look out for each other and do our best to keep each other healthy and climbing!
Please familiarize yourself with the policies to the right before deciding to come to our facility.
Ventilation at Ascent StudioBecause it has been shown that the coronavirus is most easily spread through airborne contamination, many people are interested in the ventilation and air handling in the gym.
Our RTUs (roof top units) for furnace/AC always bring in a portion of the air as fresh air. This is a normal modern building requirement. During the day, the fans in those units are running all the time (even if not heating or cooling). So the air in the building is continually being circulated through the systems, which pulls the air through two sets of filters. The pre-filters are changed/cleaned two times per week, which reduces the frequency at which we have to replace the MERV-8 filters in the RTUs (bimonthly).
We also have two types of circulation fans inside the building.
Any person who is feeling sick or experiencing symptoms related to Covid-19 (vaccinated or not), 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.
According to the Larimer County Covid regulations, all patrons from different households must remain 6ft a part while exercising if you are not a fully vaccinated person.
Update (5/16/21): Larimer County - The amended Executive Order states that fully vaccinated people can go without masks in public indoor spaces unless the setting requires otherwise.
Here at Ascent Studio we are allowing those that have been fully vaccinated to choose if you'd like to continue to wear a mask or not. If you have not been fully vaccinated, 2 weeks post final shot, please continue to wear a mask.
All visitors (climbers and spectators) must check in and check out. This will allow us to aid the health department with contact tracing if that is necessary.
We are no longer making lead ropes available. If you wish to lead climb, please bring your own lead rope (40M minimum length).
We sell 40M cuts of lead rope in our retail shop.
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 spring closure will REMAIN frozen until you tell us otherwise.
As of July 1st, our regular freeze fee of $7/month has been 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*
