Climbing During COVID-19

BRC is open for Climbing

We are open, utilizing state and county health guidelines. This will be the ultimate climbing partnership as we work together to make sure we are doing the best we can to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our wonderful members outnumber the staff many times over; we can’t do it without your help and cooperation. With a few guidelines, we believe everyone can have a great climbing experience and be safe. We ask that you take personal responsibility for your health and safety, follow our rules, and keep being the awesome members you are.

Please read through all information on this page prior to your visit to prepare yourself of all policies and health/safety info.

Mask Policy Update

As of Friday, February 18th, masks are OPTIONAL for all individuals 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 We would love to hear from you.
