Covid Secure Activities

Climbing

  • All climbing sessions will be exclusive.  We will not be mixing groups together.   

  • Customers will fit their own harnesses and connect themselves to the climbing rope under close supervision.  

  • An instructor standing two metres away can easily see if these procedures are being done correctly.   

  • In a small group there is the option of the instructor belaying the clients.  With larger groups the instructor will ensure safety by controlling the tail of the rope while clients belay each other.  This is already standard procedure for most of our sessions.  

  • If any client needs assistance on the rock face the instructor will approach them from behind and connect to the back of their harness so that face to face contact is avoided.  

  • Clients should use hand sanatiser at regular intervals throughout the session.  Gloves are optional.  

  • All metal equipment wil be throroughly cleaned before and after the session.  Harnesses, webbing and ropes will be quarantined for at least 72 hours between uses or cleaned according to manufacturers recommendations.


Abseiling

  • All abseiling sessions will be exclusive.  We will not be mixing groups together.   

  • Customers will fit their own harnesses and connect themselves to the abseiling and safety rope under close supervision.
