Good morning Tucson! After two weeks of operating with a few new COVID-specific protocols (temperature checks + verbal symptom screening upon entry), we are happy to report that reopening 2.0 has gone wonderfully smooth! While many weeknight climbing sessions have reached capacity, there is plenty of room in each facility and the feedback we’ve received has been exceedingly positive. Thank you again to our community for bearing with us, accepting and abiding by these new policies, and reconnecting with grace and smizes! 🙂
We have received numerous inquiries regarding when we will be accepting new customers. To continue with our enhanced safety and disinfecting protocols during this time, we will remain members-only, by appointment only facilities. We’re happy to share the good news that starting September 21st we will offer new memberships to customers needing a safety orientation (or refresher) by appointment only!! These appointments are intended to accommodate not only brand new customers, but those climbers with previous experience who have never climbed with us before. Please know that this does not mean we are offering any kind of day use, nor are we open to the public.
We will be offering two new member appointments each day for up to two members: one at 10:00am and one at 1:00pm. These appointments will require an online registration in addition to a deposit. The appointment covers our mandatory safety orientation for both new members (including any rental gear needed during the lesson). Our focus during these appointments will be shared space awareness, new COVID-19 protocols (masks, washing hands, social distance), as well as our ever-thorough lesson on all climbing systems. We appreciate your patience as we look to carefully expand access to our facilities while maintaining our current pandemic policies and protocols. If you have questions, concerns, or would like to set up a new member appointment outside of the aforementioned times, please email us directly at mail(@)rocksandropes.com or thebloc(@)rocksandropes.com
