Climbing wall will reopen when North Carolina moves to Phase III.
Climbing Wall will be staffed by a trained Outdoor Pursuits student or professional staff member whenever open to check-out climbing shoes and ensure users are complying with safety protocols.
A plexiglass barrier will be installed on the customer service counter between employees and patrons.
Climbing shoes will be disinfected with Lysol spray before being reissued.
All users must wash their hands or use hand sanitizer immediately before stepping on the climbing wall mat.
A hand sanitizer dispenser will be available at the climbing wall.
Climbers will also be required to utilize provided alcohol-based chalk. The alcohol content is not sufficient to kill viruses. However, it does reduce chalk particles released into the air that viruses attach to.
A maximum of 4 individuals may be on the climbing wall at a time. Two additional people may be on the foam pad area.
Hand holds will be removed and disinfected on a rotating monthly basis. Further, all hand holds will be treated with Pro-Techs anti-microbial coating before the start of fall and spring semesters.
