BRC Climbing Procedures During COVID

BRC is Open to 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 reservation policies and health/safety info.

Reservations ONLY required during Peak Hours (after 4:30pm Monday-Friday). Reservations are now for the entire gym.

We are utilizing a Capacity Counter system to monitor the total amount of climbers in the facility during these hours. If we are at capacity, you will be asked to come back at a later time.

Reservations are not required, any time, for the weight room. A max of 8 people will be in place for this area. Please help self-manage this number.

Day Passes, Punch Passes, Memberships are all welcome. If it is before Reservation Times, walk-ins are welcome.

Reserve A Climbing Time Slot

Reservations are now for the ENTIRE gym.

After 4:30pm (peak hours, M-F), we are requiring reservations. Sessions are 90-minutes and have 15 scheduled minute gaps between reservations. Please arrive on time and leave on time. Be prepared for a longer than normal check in process.  

CANCELLATIONS: Need to cancel a reservation?  No big deal!  Just make the new reservation you want and call us or email us at with what time you want to remove.

  • During Peak Hours, reservations can be made for up to 3 people per climbing party, no additional humans can accompany you. Everyone must be a member, punch card holder or purchase a Day Pass and must have a reservation. No exceptions.
  • If you make a reservation and do not cancel within 24 hours, call or email to cancel.
  • If after your session is complete and there are open spots for the next session, you can sign up for that and have a mega sesh.  You can not do this in advance, check with the Front Desk during your session.

Health and Safety

The following health and safety precautions must be adhered to:

  • Persons with any of the following symptoms are not allowed to enter the facility: fever, cough, chills, headache, sore throat, and new loss of taste or smell.
  • Persons who have had contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case in the last 14 days are not allowed to enter the facility.
  • Only reservation holders may enter the facility. (no: spectators, kids not climbing, guests, etc). We are limited in the number of non-employees that can be in the building.
  • MASKS ARE REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES. We ask that everyone wear a face mask that covers both their nose and mouth upon entering the facility and keep it on until they exit the facility.
    • Face masks can be purchased for $5.00.
  • All participants should follow proper hand hygiene by washing their hands upon and throughout their visit. We will have hand sanitizer stations available throughout the facility.
  • We ask that you stay at least six feet away from others as much as possible, including on the climbing wall. We have “zones” outlined on the floor to help with social distancing. “Keep an empty zone between you and other climbing parties”. Mind the Gap!
  • We have a Mask Free Zone (or love grotto) area outside for mask free breaks. You must maintain social distancing in the grotto.
  • You must be responsible for your own personal health. Just like the rest of the world, we can not keep viruses, bacteria, or even beta-sprayers out of the gym. Climb at your own risk.

Other General Information

  • If you have a reservation, show up to your scheduled time on time, not early. Your time slot is your entire time allowed in the facility.
  • Leave promptly and on time so the next group can come in. Please don’t make us chase you out!
  • Please, climbers only in the facility. Limit spectators, kids not climbing, guests, etc. We are limited in the number of non-employees that can be in the building.
  • We ask that you bring your own climbing equipment (harness, shoes, chalk bag/chalk, and if possible, lead rope) to reduce the usage of shared rental gear.
  • Lockers will not be available, only bring in what you need, dressed and ready to climb.


We will do everything we can to make sure you have a great experience upon your return. Our ventilation system will be pumping in fresh air, we will increase our cleaning, and we will be smiling under our masks. We hope you are too!

See you in the gym, 

BRC Staff
