If this is your first time or haven’t climbed with us since our reopening.
City Bloc is not just a climbing wall, we are also a community and we take the health, safety, and wellbeing of our customers and staff very seriously. We know that many of you are psyched to get back to indoor climbing and we want to assure you that you will be able to do so with full social distancing in a clean and safe environment. We can’t wait to see you back at the Bloc.
City Bloc will operate via a pre-booking system in order to adhere to Government guidance on capacity management, social distancing and hygiene. We have put in place a number of new measures to comply with government guidelines. These measures will be reviewed regularly in line with government guidance.
There are a few steps we need you to take before you first climb back at the Bloc. Please follow the steps laid out below (don’t worry, you’ll only have to do them once!)
Read our new guidelines
This document includes all the information you need. We ask that you read this fully to ensure we are all keeping each other safe. It includes Frequently Asked Questions, how to use the space safely and what is expected of you when using the space.
