COVID Measures


In order to protect our clients and employees we strive to comply with Center For Disease Control (CDC) recommendations for businesses related to preventing the spread of COVID-19. To the extent practical, we will practice social distancing, hand sanitizing and other safety measures. Mask wearing may be requested by either the guide or the clients. In addition, we have a COVID-19 related waiver of liability that clients must sign prior to any trips with Sylvan Rocks.

Certain activities related to rock climbing and rock climbing instruction make it impractical to fully practice CDC guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19, particularly related to social distancing. These include activities such as a guide setting up a belay or assisting clients with tying knots, or multiple climbers being clipped into a single anchor on the summit of a climb. If there is a conflict between compliance with CDC guidelines for COVID-19 and the practice of common rock climbing risk management procedures, Sylvan Rocks will NOT compromise rock climbing risk management procedures. If you have additional questions, please email or call.
