Updated: 7th July 2022
The management of COVID-19 in our centre has been hugely effective in managing the spread of infection. The measures and cautious approach our team have taken has led to an extremely low prevalence of the virus in our centre. Our team have not been affected by staff absence and it has been very minimal among centre users. Thank you to all visitors for complying with these measures and helping each other to minimise the spread.
Time Restrictions on climbing sessions
Online Booking & Walk - ins
Check in & Check Out - Mandatory
We have been working hard to make checking in and out as easy as possible for centre users. It is mandatory to check in and out of your session. This can be done one of three ways -
1) Report to the reception desk on the way in and when leaving
2) Scan in and out using a membership card and automatic scanner
3) Scan in and out using a mobile phone and automatic scanner
For options 2 & 3 please download the RGP app and ask a member of the team to sync your account, you may also use the app to make future bookings and check real time capacity.
Please download the RGPConnect app ready to connect on arrival.
