FAQ's - OPEN CLIMBING SESSIONS

Last Updated 10/8/2020

Can I book multiple sessions in advance?

Yes, you can sessions are available to book 5 days in advance.

Can I book back to back sessions?

No, please book a maximum of one session per day.

Can I book for multiple people?

Yes, as long as they have registered and climbed at Highball pre-lockdown. If in doubt, email us. With recent Government restrictions you can only book for up to 6 participants.

Can I bring/supervise guests?

Yes. Competent climbers can supervise guests on a 1:2 basis. Your 'guest' must be age 8+.

I don't climb but I have registered to supervise my child, how do I book?

Book your child on an Open Session but not yourself. You will need to check-in/out and follow all the measures while on site. If Open Climbing Sessions start reaching capacity, we may have to limit Non-Climbing Supervisors to certain sessions.

I climbed with supervision before lockdown but my 'supervisor' is from another household, can I still come and climb?

Yes! We have launched a new Bouldering Briefing which you can book online. This briefing is suitable for age 16+ and will enable to climb without supervision. More info coming soon.

Can I bring friends/family to spectate while I climb?

At this current time no. The only people allowed within the centre at this time are those registered to climb.

Do I have to wear a mask?

Yes, face coverings are mandatory when in the centre unless you are having a quick drink or bite to eat, or
are using the Strength and Conditioning Area (where it is optional but recommended).
Note: Children age 8 & 9 do not need to wear a mask.

Can I hire shoes?

Yes, hire shoes will be available. For the time being, this will be included in the session price. 
They are available on a ‘self-service’ basis after you check-in.

Will the cafe and shop be open?

Yes. You will be able to access the cafe and shop before your climbing session via a dedicated 'takeaway' entrance'. You will also be able to use the same entrance to come to reception before your climbing session to update any expired registrations, replace lost barcode key fobs, or activate the RGPro Connect App.

Please bring a water bottle (full of water) as the water fountain is out of use.

Is the Strength and Conditioning Area Open?

Yes, it is. There is maximum capacity of 8 people so please keep workouts to a maximum of 20 mins and
spray/wipe down all equipment you use before and after.

Are you running any supervised/instructed sessions for adults or children?

Due to social distancing, we have suspended all sessions lead by our Coaching Team. This will be reviewed towards the end of August.

Note: Bouldering Inductions will return week commencing 31 August
