FAQ

Can you be 100% sure I am safe from Covid-19 when climbing in Camp5?

There is NO way to completely eliminate the risk of Covid. Even if we disinfect the entire facility, there is no guaranty that the climber who went before you did not have asymptomatic Covid-19. The same can be said for shopping for groceries, or walking in the street. This is why it is important to maintain your own personal hygiene habits, wash hands regularly, avoid contact with others and touching your face, and maintain a social distancing.

Do you clean the wall & holds?

Climbing hold cleaning is carried out as part of our regular routesetting. We will also be daily spraying of antiviral solution. Along with these and other general hygiene practices we have also switched our powder chalk to liquid chalk with a concentration of 70% alcohol. This way when 'chalking-up' between climbs, you will effectively be hand sanitizing. The liquid chalk will replace our rental chalk at RM3/30ml bottle, this should be plenty for a climbing session.

Why is powder chalk prohibited?

What is understood about Covid-19 is it's ability to survive in airborne form. When using powder chalk it is common that fine dust particles get into the air and this can aid the spread of Covid-19. By switching to liquid chalk the dust particles will be greatly reduced. As an additional benefit, the liquid chalk solution provided at Camp5 is 70% alcohol, effectively working like sanitizer to clean your hands between climbs.

I have a prepaid Membership, do I still have to queue?

Yes. Although we will give priority to prepaid members (especially those with single gym terms). However to avoid any queue situation we strongly encourage climbers to check the live capacity limit before making your way to the gym. And if you are a member, consider making a reservation in advance. We will do our best to make sure no one is denied access but it requires everyones cooperation and understanding.

Can I still bring a Guest?

Yes. However we do ask that you hold off on bringing any guests for the first month following the MCO, just to give time for everyone to adjust and get used to the new policies. Also, new climbers and guests will not be first priority. If there is a queue they will only gain entry if there are no paid-up members waiting. For this reason we would encourage you to share climbing with your friends on quieter weekdays.

Will there still be gear to rent?

Yes, but stock may be limited as we will be carrying our cleaning and quarantining of gear between use. Maybe now would be the right time to consider buying and owning you own climbing kit. This would also help support the gym.

Are the Changing Rooms, Showers and Lockers Open?

Yes, however there will be capacity limits posted in all changing rooms. Once capacity is reached you will need to queue. To avoid inconvenience, we encourage you to change into your climbing attire before you arrive and bring only what you need.

How long will these policies remain in place?

We don't know. We ask your patience and understanding. As annoying as these restrictions may be, I trust we can all agree that it is better to suffer the inconvenience than to not have a climbing gym to climb in.
