Open Climbing Wall Protocols

We have created a set of safety protocols that are in accordance with the University of Guelph and conform to other climbing gym policies & procedures located in the surrounding area.  

  • All users will enter through the Larry Pearson entrance
  • Everyone must check-in at Client Services upon arrival
  • Prior to climbing top rope with a belayer, individuals must pass the belay test.  Climbing Wall Monitors can assist with belaying on top rope during Newcomer hours   

Climbing Wall Guidelines

Athletics is committed to providing a safe, inviting experience for the University of Guelph community. Please assist us by adhering to the following guidelines:

  • Try not to touch your face when climbing or without sanitizing/cleaning first and practice proper respiratory etiquette
  • Sanitize hands when entering & exiting the indoor climbing wall location
  • Sanitize between climbs, if possible.  We encourage sanitizing between climbs as we cannot sanitize the rope and rock holds
  • Please physical distance as much as possible (2m distance).  No congregating or sitting down in groups
  • To help keep the air as clean as possible, please use the liquid chalk this is available (loose chalk is not permitted) 
  • When climbing top rope, you must have at least one climbing route between yourself and any other climbers on the wall
  • Bouldering must be respectful of the distance between each other and not get close to each other
  • Please come dressed to climb as there are no change rooms at the climbing wall.  If necessary, please use the Athletics Centre Changerooms 

Equipment Rental

  • Climbing shoes & harnesses are available for free and will be cleaned and quarantined after each usage
