POWELL RIVER'S TOP PLACE FOR

FUN, FITNESS & COMMUNITY

Hours: 
Wednesdays: 12-6 pm
Fridays: 3:30-9:30 pm
Saturdays: 12-6 pm
Sundays: 12-6 pm

In order to ensure the safety of our staff and members, things will be a little different for the time being as we enact COVID Safe Protocols to help keep our community healthy and safe.

Drop-in Hours Rules

  • Anyone entering the facility must wear a mask– masks are available for purchase at the front desk for $1.
  • Anyone entering the facility must either wash their hands or apply hand sanitizer (which will be provided).
  • Climbers must use alcohol-based liquid chalk only while bouldering. When roped climbing, they must use liquid chalk as a base layer and chalk up only while on route if necessary.
  • Be mindful of space for anyone outside of your “bubble”. We are limiting our capacity as follows:
    • Maximum 16 people in the bouldering area
    • Maximum 8 people in the top-rope area. Climb at least two routes apart.
    • Maximum 4 people in the training area.
  • Sessions are limited to 2 hours at a time.
  • Regularly touched surfaces will be disinfected regularly. Thorough COVID cleaning protocols will be followed during public drop-in hours.
  • Our water supply will be off-limits, please bring your own water bottle!
  • Rentals:
    • Liquid chalk and climbing shoes will be available for rental and will be disinfected after each use.
    • Harnesses are available for rent. Any climbers renting a harness must wash their hands before using the harness.

Fob Holder Rules

Keep these additional guidelines in mind during members-only hours to ensure our community can climb safely, as per our staff and board developed COVID Safe Plan:

  • Our water supply will be off-limits, please bring your own water bottle!
  •  Please bring a face mask – wearing a mask is mandatory in the facility while not climbing.
  •  Upon entering the facility, please scan the bouldering area and downstairs to see how many people are present. For those of you already climbing, if it is at capacity, please be considerate of others and consider shortening your session to share the space. For those of you arriving, anticipate you may need to wait for others to finish.
  • We will have staff cleaning and sanitizing door knobs, bathroom surfaces, the front desk counter top, benches and railings regularly. The POS machine and the iPad will be sanitized after each use. However, we ask that members also take initiative and also sanitize bathrooms and door knobs as staffing can be limited throughout the week.
  • Please be prepared to limit the length of your sessions to no more than 2 hours so others may climb as well. For those of you with Facebook, considering using the PRCC Fob Holders group to notify others when you plan to be climbing, especially if you are with a group/family.
  • We thank you in advance for being patient and supporting us through these times.

We offer drop-ins five days a week, and all access memberships for round-the-clock fun. Get yourself hooked up with one and use the gym from 5 am to 11 pm every day.

The gym is a place welcome to all ages, kids included! However, children and youth need some special consideration at the gym. Check out our FAQ so you and your child can enjoy the gym safely.

We also have teams running (and seasonal camps) for youth of all ages! Check out our page here or get in touch for more info and to register.

As a community co-op, we are committed to providing youth and community groups with access to the facility during the week to help foster a fun, inclusive and positive active environment for all citizens of Powell River.

We also host parties of all kinds and similar events! Please check out our group guidelines.
