No street shoes allowed in climbing areas.
Only bring in items necessary for your visit.
airPHX brand air sanitizers provide constant air and surface disinfection in both our Bainbridge and Bremerton gym locations. airPHX devices produce a proprietary blend of oxidizing molecules that are generated when ambient air goes through a plasma cell. These are molecules that occur naturally in most environments, but airPHX produces them in a unique mixture and in levels that are both extremely effective in killing viruses (including COVID-19) and bacteria, and are well below safe levels as established by health regulations. airPHX units are medical-grade devices often used in hospitals to reduce viruses and bacteria on surfaces and in the air.
Q: Can I drop in for climbing anytime you're open?
A: As of July 1st, no occupancy restrictions are currently in force at either of our facilities and drop-ins are welcome at Bainbridge during all open hours at our Bainbridge Island and Bremerton facilities.
Q: How are you cleaning the holds and walls?
A: Much like visiting the grocery store where many people might touch an item before you, the climbing walls and holds will have many people touch them between cleanings. To assist with cleaning, we have installed AirPHX air sanitizers in both gym locations which kills viruses (including coronavirus) and bacteria in the air AND on surfaces in as little as 60 minutes. And because current CDC and WHO guidelines tell us COVID-19's main path of transmission is airborne, not surface contact, we are requiring masks to be work at all times by unvaccinated individuals (including all individuals under 12 years old) to a) reduce the likelihood of person to person transmission, b) reduce the amount of particles people are breathing onto the holds, c) reduce the likelihood of touching your nose and mouth while in the facility. Masks are optional for vaccinated staff and customers.
Q: Are there any age requirements for who can climb in the gym right now?
A: Presently, climbers of all ages can climb in both facilities. All youth age 13 and younger must be accompanied by a supervisor who is 14 or over.
Adult to youth under 14 ratio must not exceed 2 youth to 1 adult.
Q: Can I bring a friend/relative to watch me climb?
A: As of July 1st, there are no longer any occupancy restrictions in either of our facilities, spectators are allowed in the building at this time.
