Another COVID-19 statement from the 3WM team

Sep 11, 2020 5:29:06 PM / by Oliver Millington

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be reopening for members only on the 14th of September.

While you have been away we’ve made some pretty exciting changes to the wall – you can expect to come back to everything you loved about the climbing at 3WM and a lot more besides. We want to share a little of what we have been up to during the challenging times that Covid-19 has presented.

We can’t wait to have you back and climbing at our safe space with the community we’ve been missing, but we want to do this as safely as possible .

Covid 19 and our Rules

We are prepared and ready to open so don’t be afraid to come in!

Here are our key Do’s (and one Don’t ! ) to help you stay safe:-

DO Read our COVID-19  Statement HERE - this is the really important bit to keep our climbing community as safe as possible and to keep us operating.

DO come and climb at 3WM  if you and those close to you have been free of COVID-19 symptoms for at least the last 14 days

DO come on time and ready to climb - This make things easier for everyone

DO use your own climbing kit and try not to share outside of your household

DO bring your own water bottles and keep bags to a minimum

DO check in AND check out of your climbing session - this helps us manage capacity

DO fill out a registration form before you visit, even if you have climbed with us before:

Register as a climber

DO be kind to our staff, be patient with the changes and please be part of the community effort to look after each other.

DO Give people their space throughout the centre - information will be displayed to help you follow the current guidance

DO Sanitise your hands regularly - stations have been installed for you to use

Do Avoid touching your face

DO Practice good coughing/sneezing etiquette

DO Wear face coverings whilst not climbing 

DO be aware that together we can all minimise the risk, but we cannot eradicate it - so, as minimal as the risk might be, you have to take responsibility for your decision to come into the centre

DON’T be afraid to come back! We can’t wait to see you and to fill our safe space with the community we have been missing! 


We are managing our capacity carefully to help keep things safe and in line with government guidelines.

We’ve introduced 3hr time slots - either ropes, bouldering, or both!

Book Your Climbing Session Now

It would be very helpful for us if you can stick to the decision you've made - since each climbing area will have its own capacity limit.

We’ll try our best to be flexible - but you will need to check with the team at reception! We won’t ask you to leave early without good reason!

If you're hoping to visit last minute, you can check our current capacity here

The New Training Room

We are super excited to open our new training room - frankly it’s pretty awesome and we will be shouting loud about it over the coming days - but hey better to come and have a look for yourself and book onto our available one hour slots for this fantastic new training facility. At the moment the training room will only be available for over 18's - this will be subject to change when our insurance policies are brought up to date with the new facility.


We have a number of flexible options, for the first two weeks of re-opening we are open to Members only.

Any Questions ?

We love to hear from you and we will put together a FAQs which we will be updating as we open, you can of course get in touch with us or chat with us on Facebook.
