Centre Hygiene

  • Clothing: Please keep shoes and tops on for the duration of your climbing session.
  • Changing area: Changing facilities are now fully functional including showers.
  • Ventilation: The ventilation system at Craggy Island replaces the air every 6 minutes. This means much less chalk dust and also a constant supply of fresh air being drawn into the centre throughout the day.
  • Cleaning: We have increased centre cleaning with high-traffic areas and customer facilities sanitised with antiviral products.
  • Equipment: We sanitise all of our safety equipment in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations. Equipment is available for hire at Reception.

  • Dog policy: We do not allow dogs in the centre for hygiene reasons.
