On July 1st, 2018 we're implementing some new policies at Climb Nashville:
Climb Murfreesboro Membership
Climb Murfreesboro won't open until August, but we want to go ahead and let you know that you're current Climb Nashville membership will get you in to all other Climb locations going forward.
East Auto Belays
As of July 1st, the Auto Belays at Climb Nashville East will be removed and taken over to Climb Nashville West. The former top rope area will be converted into a slab bouldering area which we are excited to add!
Youth Bouldering at East and West
Starting July 1st, 2018 outside of any Climb facilitated program, climbers must be 13 or older to boulder without direct parental supervision at all of our locations.
Any climber who is under 13 but climbs with the Youth Team and has received approval from their coaches to boulder may do so with direct parental supervision. The climber will need a white wristband from the front desk and the "kids bouldering approval" tab must be marked by a youth team coach on the climbers' profile.
Any climber who is under 13 but has scheduled at least one bouldering lesson with an instructor, and has received approval from that instructor to boulder, may do so with direct parental supervision. The climber will need a white wristband from the front desk and the "kids bouldering approval" tab must be marked by an instructor on the climbers' profile.
Please schedule a bouldering lesson with an instructor in advanced by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. No approval will be provided on the day of the request. Additionally, approvals are not guaranteed and are made at the sole discretion of the instructor.
Within a Climb facilitated program (Summer Camp, Youth Team, Private Lesson, School Trip, etc) the above rules are not to be assumed in force. Climb facilitated programs provide trained staff and as such, programs may include exceptions to the above rules made fully at Climb’s discretion.
GriGri’s On Lead
As of August, 2018 we are updating our Lead Climbing Policy. We are considering that anyone lead climbing must belay with a GriGri 2 or newer GriGri device.
You may have missed the initial Q+A meeting we held to discuss the plan. By popular request we are holding another. We want to hear your feedback and have an open dialogue on how we’ve landed here. Come join in the discussion at one of two Q+A's in July!
July 14th at 6PM | July 28th at 6pm | WEST
Until the end of 2018, a small number of GriGri devices will be available at the front desk for members and guests to ‘rent’ out in exchange for a set of keys to be held while they climb.
GriGri Lead Belay Lesson
If you are already approved to Lead Belay at Climb Nashville but have never used or are uncomfortable using a GriGri device to Lead Belay join our instructors for a Free GriGri Lead Belay Lesson. We'll host lessons every Thursday in July from 7pm - 9pm.
This is not a lead belay clinic - you will not learn how to lead belay and must be pre-approved to lead at Climb Nashville before joining a Free GriGri Lead Belay Lesson.
A New Waiver
On August 1st, 2018 we will release a new waiver that all members and guests (old and new) will be required to fill out to enter the gym. While memberships and approvals (belay, lead, etc) will be honored from location to location, a waiver will be filled out for Murfreesboro and for Nashville gyms separately.
