• Climbing with Care: COVID-19 Update

    March 16, 2020   |   By: High Point Climbing

    The safety of our members, guests, and staff remains a top priority. Please refer to the following message from Partner/President John Wiygul for update on increased precautions at High Point Birmingham:

    Dear High Point community,

    In a continued effort to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19, we will be taking more precautions across all of our facilities. As recommended by national health organizations, in addition to our updated hand washing initiative and increased cleaning routine, we will be implementing effective practices of social distancing in order to reduce any additional health risk.

    In an effort to fortify these precautions we will discontinue all group oriented events and programs effective Sunday, March 15th through March 31st. This includes all classes, youth programming, yoga, climbing leagues, and community events. If you currently have a group event or birthday party booked with us during this time, a High Point representative will be in contact with you shortly to discuss your booking options.

    With the practice of social distancing in mind, we will be considering other methods of reducing close proximity interaction. In the meantime, if you do join us in our facilities, it is recommended that you maintain a healthy personal space between you and your fellow climbers.

    As always, the safety and well-being of our members and guests will remain as our top priority. These simple changes are an easy way for us to help protect as many people as possible over the coming weeks. We will continue to assess the situation at hand and consider every option we have in order to maintain the highest level of service and safety possible for our community.
