Message to our members and supporters
This all seems surreal and temporarily closing the gym has been a heavy decision. We are a small business built on blood, sweat, and tears and we are very grateful for the support and fun times we have had since opening up in 2016.
Keeping the virus under control is a community effort and we feel that we must do our part to keep the community healthy and happy. Please do what you can to keep yourselves and your loved ones safe during this chaotic time.
Effective immediately the Rock Boxx will temporarily be closed for business. We will continually reassess the situation with the virus and reopen when it is safe to do so. We will update everyone with any necessary info regarding the gym’s status as it becomes available.
The Rock Boxx has become an amazing business because of our awesome staff, and we are very grateful for them. We are working hard to support our staff and provide them with hours by making improvements inside the gym during the closure period. We will also be cleaning and sanitizing all climbing holds and surfaces. All employees are being mandatorily required to wear face masks, and are choosing to continuing working some hours during our closure to support themselves and their families.
During the closure we will be adding a significant amount of new climbing surface onto our top out boulder! This will add a considerable amount of new terrain for full length boulder problems. We will also be resurfacing the large prow structure. We plan to see the closure through and open back up better than ever! Check back here periodically to see what we have in the works for you when we reopen. Updates will be posted here in the near future. In the meantime practice good CDC recommended techniques for minimizing the spread of the virus and stay healthy all!
