Busy Times/Extra Staff

Date posted: January 23, 2013

Common Courtesy: 

Yes, it’s that time of year again…it’s snowy and cold and the local crag is now the climbing gym. As the gym turns into a mosh pit during peak climbing times please remember the following courtesies to make your, and your peers, experience a great one:

  • Please be patient, positive and supportive when waiting for routes and boulder problems.
  • Share the walls…no ‘lapping’ routes during busy hours or trying to ‘beat’ people to a set of top anchors on the lead wall.
  • Look out for climbers above you in the bouldering cave and give ’em a spot if they need it or encouragement and beta if they want it.
  • Place belongings in cubbies in hallway and upstairs or under benches, NOT in retail area, on top of benches or in the top rope, lead wall or bouldering areas (that includes the base of the pole in main area for all you offenders).
  • Be an all around positive person and contributor to the gym. We are very fortunate to have a great vibe. Let’s keep it.

We have all broken these rules at times when it is slower or if we are in a bad mood but during these busy months there is no room for this lack of courtesy. Love thy neighbor! Lucky, we have amazing members and I know these courtesies are probably obvious to the majority. That’s why we love you all so much!! Thanks.

Quieter Times in the Gym:

If you are thinking “There are too many people in the gym right now! I could crowd surf from the lead wall to the second bathroom!!” here are some times in the gym that are generally nice and quiet to give you a more ‘calm’ climbing experience…

Quieter Times:

Monday:8:30 pm-11 pm

Tuesday: 11-4 pm and 8:30 pm-11 pm

Wednesday: 9 pm-11 pm

Thursday: 11-4 pm and 8:30 pm-11 pm

Friday: 10-4 pm and 7 pm-11 pm

Added Evening Staff to Serve You:

Not sure if you have noticed so far this winter but we have added extra staff on weekday evenings to better serve you. Our goal is to…

Giving you the care that you deserve:

Each and every one of you are important to us and we want to make sure that we can help you in any way you need. Be it getting beta, membership questions, training tips, help with retail, instructing a friend learn how to belay or the many other things you may need help with; we are here to help!

Keeping the facility in tip top shape:

During these busy months and serious flu season we want you to know we take having a clean facility seriously. Your health and comfort is very important to us! With our extra staff on hand we are working hard to keep bathrooms, surfaces, doorknobs, light switches and all the rest of our shared stuff clean and disinfected and the general facility tidy and in order. Please remember to wash hands before and after every climbing session to help us keep a healthy facility. Thanks!
Here’s to another great winter with the greatest members on earth!
