OTR Soft Opening Outline
The following is a ‘guide’ informing our climbers how the ‘new’ system works.
Please note :- this plan is subject to change as new information becomes available.
1. Booking is not required. But if you have a group of 6 or more or you’re visiting from out of town, please contact us:- This can be done via phone (250-287-7625) or through e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org)
3. Show up for your climbing session:- If you’re a first time visitor prepare to spend 10 minutes reviewing the new system. Expect to follow physical distancing measures, do hand hygiene and refrain from socializing outside of your climbing partners.
4. Gear up and climb in your session:- while maintaining the posted physical distancing guidelines whenever possible; and ensuring safe climbing, belaying, and spotting practices.
* Once your session ends, you will have a few minutes to collect your items, practice hand hygiene, and leave through the designated exit.
