CLIMBING GYMS NEED OUR SUPPORT NOW MORE THAN EVER

To us, community is and always will be the most important part of climbing, and we truly believe that this community can change people’s lives. We hope that by sharing ways we can support our local climbing gym during this time, we can help to keep this community thriving and get everyone cranking on the wall again as soon as possible.

SO WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?

We’re putting together a list of ideas that could help support our local climbing gyms. We’ll keep adding to this list indefinitely so keep checking back for some more tips.

  • Buy a gift voucher from your local gym. Not only can it make a great gift (or you can introduce a friend to the sport when gyms are open again) but it can also help your gym cover their costs.
  • As well as checking in with your family, friends and neighbours, check in with your fellow climbers as well! Keeping an open and honest conversation going will help us all to realise we’re not going through this alone – we’re in it together.
  • Send a message to your local gym and ask if you can book in a birthday party or other celebration. Even if it’s a year from now, it’ll be something to look forward to for that whole year!
  • Leave a review for your favourite local gym on Google or Facebook, or give them a shoutout on Instagram. Help other climbers learn to love your local as much as you do.
  • If you can’t do any of the above or you’re not sure how to best help your local gym, just reach out to them and ask! We’re sure they would appreciate the support and maybe you could even brainstorm some more ideas together for how to help them out during this time.
