Mask Policy Update – September 2, 2021

As of Friday, September 2nd masks are REQUIRED for all individuals 2 years and older inside the BRC (and all public indoor spaces in Boulder County).

This is per Boulder County Department of Health Public Order

We will continue to offer hand sanitizing stations, keep our disinfecting protocols and make sure our ventilation system is pumping in fresh air hourly.

Since the onset of the pandemic, we have done our best to adapt programming, policies and protocols to keep our members, guests and employees safe. We will continue to follow science-based recommendations from the CDC, state and local public health agencies. We see this most recent change in masks as another step towards getting back to focusing on what we love; rock climbing with friends and family. We hope this change allows you additional freedom and the ability to enjoy the BRC to its fullest.

Comments, questions, concerns please email us at frontdesk@boulderrockclub.com. We would love to hear from you.

Updated Mask Policy starting May 22nd

Following recent updates to national, state and county guidelines, the Boulder Rock Club has updated our Mask Policy, effective Saturday, May 22nd.

To align with our community and surrounding businesses (King Soopers, Whole Foods, The Y, Colorado Athletic Club, Trader Joes, Home Depot and countless others) we will make masks optional for fully vaccinated individuals. Masks will be strongly encouraged for everyone else. Staff, members and guests are welcome to continue wearing masks if they feel more comfortable doing so. And we will support those individuals in their decisions.

We will continue to offer hand sanitizing stations, keep our disinfecting protocols and make sure our ventilation system is pumping in fresh air hourly.

The BRC will be re-opening soon!

UPDATE 6/4/2020

It’s Happening!

That’s right, folks.  It’s happening!  We will be re-opening soon.  Very soon.

Expect some changes and new procedures, which is the way of the world now.  We will be offering reservation-only, member only climbing and weight room appointments.  Masks will be required at all times.  More details to come soon!

When we announce our re-opening date, we will re-institute everyone’s memberships.  Credit from our original closure will applied.

If you want to support us and our staff, the best way is to restart your membership and come climb.

You can also still DONATE YOUR MARCH CREDIT to help up even more.

We will send an email with all the details, post on Facebook and Instagram (follow us if you haven’t already), and, of course, at www.boulderrockclub.com.

We look forward to seeing your beautiful, masked faces climbing with us again soon.

UPDATE 4/27/2020

We just finished listening to Governor Jared Polis’s press conference about Safer at Home and were listening intently for specifics on climbing gyms and a possible re-opening date. As of now, we are ordered to stay closed; we will not re-open May 1st, and we do not have a new date or timeline based on the current information available.

The Governor urged the public to stay vigilant, stay at home whenever possible and suggested the state would cautiously re-open businesses in stages. Due to the very nature of a climbing gym and health clubs/workout facilities in general, close contact is inevitable. Social distancing is not entirely possible in our facility or any climbing gym. Our team is looking at all the requirements currently available for businesses to re-open and remain open. We are brainstorming with the Climbing Wall Association and will join fellow Front Range climbing gym owners/operators on a conference call this week to talk about re-opening procedures when that time comes. Please know when we are allowed to re-open, we will be very diligent about creating a safe environment for our members, guests and staff.

For more information about businesses re-opening, we suggest: Colorado Safer at Home

CLOSURE UPDATE 4/9/2020 and How Can You Help BRC?

Many of you have reached out wanting to know how you can help the BRC get through the closure and how you can help support our staff. ‘Donating your March Credit’  was a huge help. We now have other ways for you to contribute financially.  Since we voluntarily closed on March 15th,we have committed ourselves to continuing to pay all our staff for as long as possible.

Without knowing for certain, we are preparing ourselves for extended closure orders and the possibility of a soft re-opening. Who knows when we can have a packed gym, youth programs, climbing team or even a group belay class again. “Normal” may be a ways off.

If you have the financial means, maybe you can make a contribution to the BRC. We commit that we will use member contributions in the most responsible way we know how, to continue paying our employees. There are many options right now, but we feel trying to pay our staff 100% of their intended schedules is better for them than choosing unemployment plus the aid package for individuals.

We realize contributing financially is not an option for everyone and completely understand. We also know we might not be your contribution of choice during these difficult times. If choosing to financially contribute to us versus other entities, health care workers, first responders, low income sectors; please choose someone in greater need.

If you do choose to support us financially, there are several ways. Go ‘HERE To Contribute’ and you will see all the details. There are many options that can make an enormous, positive impact on our future success. Whether you pay monthly or purchase paid in full memberships, we have options for contributions.

How else can I support?

The absolute best way to support us is to keep us in your thoughts and join us when we re-open. We will be there for you.
If you have questions about your membership, you can email our general inbox frontdesk@boulderrockclub.com. You can make Membership Changes here. Remember, unless you need to make a change, we will automatically freeze your membership for the full closure time. Nothing else to do.

Thank you for considering. Be safe, stay healthy and keep fit!


As you know, we decided to close on Sunday, March 15th for the health of our employees, members, and the community as a whole. On Monday, March 16th the Governor ordered all gyms to close starting Tuesday, March 17th for at least 30 days. We will comply with that order by remaining closed until we are allowed to re-open AND we feel it is responsible for our members, employees and guests.

The BRC is spending this closure time planning for the re-opening and making sure we can continue to pay our employees that rely on us for financial stability. Many of us will fall on hard times and we feel it is our responsibility to ensure our employee’s economic health and well-being.

Be safe everyone, stay healthy, stay fit.

MEMBERSHIP INFO: About your Automatic Monthly Membership

We billed everyone on March 1st. We voluntarily closed on March 15th and initially told all members we would apply the prorated credit (17 days’ worth) on the April 1st billing. We will now, automatically, do that on our re-open date. Very detailed info about this at the bottom of the email. You will not be billed until we have an official re-open date.

We are now asking any member that has the financial means to ‘Donate your Credit’ to our employee financial fund. Your donation will go a very long way in making sure we can continue to support our employees. Many of our members have reached out to us proactively and have already donated! Thank you. Know that we have reached out to our vendors, landlord, managers, and owners to all pitch in. Many of our own employees have volunteered to forgo pay so that we can contribute to those that need it. This shows what an amazing group of people and community we have at the BRC.

If you can click this link to send an email to  ‘Donate your CreditIf you Donate, then we will simply charge your normal rates when we re-open.

If you are experiencing financial hardship and your 17 days’ worth of membership means everything to you right now, please reply to me directly(Kevin Bains). No one should go hungry or lose their shelter during this pandemic.

For everyone else, we will credit your account the 17 days when we re-open automatically. Nothing else to do.

BRC Billing Policies:
*We bill all members on the 1st of the month.
*Any member joining or renewing mid-month pays for the remaining days in the month (pro rate)
*If anyone joins on the 20th of the month or later, we collect the remainder of that month (pro rate) AND the next month.

Possible Billing Scenarios based on re-opening date:
-If we re-open with more than 17 days left in the month: we will apply your 17 day credit and bill you for the remaining days left in the month.
-If we re-open with less than 17 days left in the month: we will apply the 17 day credit, and then apply any remaining credit to the next billing date (next 1st of the month).
-If we re-open on the 20th or later(which is less than 17 days), will apply the 17 day credit to the remaining days left in the month (pro rate) and the 1st of the month billing

Paid in Full Memberships:
Your paid in full membership’s expiration date will automatically be adjusted to compensate for the full length of the closure. You will not lose any membership time. No need to do anything, we will adjust this automatically based on the re-open date.

We have a wonderful climbing community and hope we can welcome you all back soon. Stay safe, stay healthy, keep fit.

Kevin Bains

BRC UPDATE 3/14/2020 9:00pm

While we have communicated that we would stay open until it no longer seemed like the responsible thing to do or we were no longer allowed, the staff and managers have agreed: we feel it is no longer responsible to remain open. As difficult as this is for us, we must all do our part to stop the spread of the virus.

The Boulder Rock Club will be closed starting Sunday, March 15th through the remainder of March. This situation is fluid, and we will be ready to change those dates if the situation requires.


-Monthly members will receive pro-rated credit for the remainder of March applied to the April 1st billing. We will send detailed information before that billing cycle so everyone knows what to expect. No need to do anything, we got it.

-Paid in full members will have their memberships extended for the full duration of the closure. We will make this change automatically.

-We know there will be many special membership cases and we will deal with those on an individual basis to ensure we are taking care of our members.

-No need to contact us if you are a Monthly Auto or Paid in full. We will take care of your membership automatically.

-If you have special circumstances surrounding your membership, please go HERE and fill out our form. This is the best way for us to handle your membership. We will then contact you individually.

Thank you for being a wonderful climbing community. Stay strong, stay healthy, find ways to stay fit and let us know how it’s going for you. Know that we will be working hard during this closure. We will do an extensive cleaning and disinfecting of the facility so that we are ready to re-open when the time comes.

We will be available by email; please do not hesitate to contact us frontdesk@boulderrockclub.com.

Thanks for climbing with us. We look forward to tying in with you soon.

Kevin Bains

General Manager

BRC Update: 3/13/2020, 4:00pm

We are planning on staying open as long as it is allowed and the responsible thing to do. If we are required to close, or no longer feel it is responsible being open, we will close.

Notices will be on the alert banner on our home page, this page, Facebook and a member-wide email if we close. Decisions will be made based on current information and that information is changing minute by minute, hour by hour.
