The latest information we have.

Reopening Updates

We're stoked to be getting back to normal!

We're following State and County guidance for preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our community, focussed on the following key principles:

  • Vaccination

  • Masks

  • Contact Tracing

  • Social Distancing

  • Plenty of Ventilation

  • Personal Hygiene

On August 23rd, the FDA Approved the Pfizer Vaccine against COVID-19 for ages 16+, and on Wednesday September 15th, CCHS announced that gyms would need to start requiring proof of vaccination for everyone ages 12+.

We have received a ton of feedback from members asking us to go Vaccinated-only, and with the vaccine approval we're ready for that.


Effective Friday, September 17th, we will be requiring Proof of Vaccination against COVID-19 for all participants who are eligible for vaccination (i.e. everyone ages 12+). We will continue to welcome youth ages 6-11 who are not eligible for vaccination, and we will continue to require masks indoors in accordance with CDC Guidance.


If you have not yet verified your vaccination status with us, you may do so by presenting your vaccination card, or a picture of your vaccination card at the Front Desk on your next check-in. We will record vaccination status, so you don’t need to re-verify at a later date. If you have already verified your vaccination status with us earlier in the summer (i.e the vast majority of our members, woo!), there is no need to do so again.


If you have a medical exemption or disability which precludes you from becoming vaccinated, but you would still like to climb with us, please reach out to


We would also like to take the opportunity to mention that all of our staff are vaccinated, and have been for quite some time. Cheers!

On July 27th, the CDC announced new guidance recommending that even vaccinated folks

wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission, “to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others.” According to the CDC, community transmission is currently happening at a high level in Contra Costa County. While we do not yet have a renewed mask mandate in our county, we feel that the best thing to do in order to protect the health + safety of our staff + community is to return to masking for all.


As of Thursday, July 29th, we will be requiring masks for all inside the gym once again, regardless of vaccination status. All customers are required to wear a mask covering both nose and mouth in our facility. Bandanas and Neck Gaiters do not count. Masks with vents do not count.


Please come to the gym prepared. We recommend purchasing a mask which you don’t have to adjust constantly, both for your own comfort and the safety of those around you. We particularly like the Essential Face Mask from our friends at @outdoorresearch, which not only fits a variety of faces well (they even make a kids model), but is moisture-wicking and comes with replaceable filters. Seriously, it makes a big difference.


We will continue to provide disposable face masks at the front desk, and our staff will resume wearing masks in the facility. Masks will remain optional for outdoor offerings.


Thank you all for your support during this particularly trying time. By taking this small step together, we may help prevent a wider outbreak from occurring in our community.
