COVID 19 MEASURES AT SUBSTATION (updated 14th October 2020)

From 14th October we will be adding the following regulations to the existing regulations that have been in place since re-opening:-

  • Face coverings to be worn at all times unless you are on the climbing wall, performing an exercise in the training area, on your yoga mat or eating or drinking at a seat in the café.

  • All clubs are suspended, this includes Sub-Club and Social Night

  • People from Very High Covid Alert Level areas must not use Substation

  • Childrens parties are unable to go ahead

  • Capacity is reduced to 70 climbers and 10 yoga participants


  • Social distancing should be maintained throughout the centre

  • If check-in is busy please queue outside

  • Arrive ready to climb as the changing rooms will be closed

  • Hand sanitising stations to be used when entering and exiting the centre, when leaving one area of the centre and regularly applied during your visit

  • Each area of the centre will have a capacity, this will be monitored by staff and should this limit be reached, access will be restricted to the centre until there is sufficient space

  • Rental shoes must be worn with socks and will be completely disinfected after each customer

We won’t be operating a booking system for climbing – each part of the centre will have a maximum capacity and our staff will monitor this closely. However, given our floor area and current guidelines we don’t think capacity will be exceeded under normal conditions.

  • Face coverings to be worn at all times except when on your yoga mat
