COVID-19 Update : December 24

You may have heard about Larimer County’s Level Up program for businesses; the program enables businesses that meet enhanced safety guidelines in qualifying counties to open at greater capacity. Approved businesses are able to operate and move up a level, and in our case, from Level Red to the less restrictive Level Orange capacities.

After an extensive application process and physical inspection of the safety measures of our business, we are pleased to say that we have been approved to participate in this program and our customer capacity is able to increase from 50 to 125!

The overall capacity of the gym has been increased to 100, 20% of our normal capacity of 500

At this time, we have internally decided to only be increasing our capacity to 100. This enables us to closely monitor facility usage and ease into this new capacity increase rather than all at once. If there is a demand for the increase to 125 and customer flow/spacing throughout the facility and zones is satisfactory to our management, then we will announce the further increase to 125.

This means that we will be increasing the number of climbers throughout the gym from 10 per zone to 20 per zone. If there are 20 climbers in a zone, please do not enter the area.

Reservations are still required, but are no longer be limited to members and punch pass holders!

Guests are welcome to book as well now BUT if members and punch pass holders are consistently unable to book because of this change, we’ll revert back to disallowing guests to reserve in advance. Thanks for your understanding.

Thank you, Whetstone community!

We certainly could not have done this alone; it’s only through the effort this community has shown to adhere to county guidelines and climb safely that we were able to achieve this huge step!!
