We have begun several phases to allow things to resemble normal in Hamilton and Niagara. We've developed some guidelines that are socially responsible, while also protecting the interests and security of our business . . . and your gym!
We're very grateful for your patience and can't wait to see you.
Belay tests (TR & Lead), Intro Lessons and Climb Only sessions are now available! Please email email@example.com for more information.
Youth Programming will be phased in according to best pandemic practices.
Climbing will be at set times and must be booked in advance:
In the booking portal, please follow the links to "Create an Optional Profile." This will allow you to cancel bookings without calling or emailing the gym.
If you are unable to attend a booking, please cancel ASAP (via the app, your online profile, OR contacting the gym) to avoid cancellation fees.
Memberships and Punch Cards can be purchased here:
Memberships will stay frozen by default initially. You may restart your membership upon your first visit back, or pay per session as per your comfort level.
On Sunday, August 16th all remaining frozen memberships will be automatically reinstated.
Members wishing to remain on hold must request a continued freeze using this form.
EFT members that wish to remain frozen may do so according to their membership contract which allows for monthly holds at $9/month + HST.
Prepaid members have the option to place their memberships on hold for $10/month + HST which can be paid using their membership days as credit.
