Well... it's been a hot minute since you got an update from us about our expansion and you've seen a new rendering. This week, we are putting the pedal to the metal on our construction, so there may be some minor disruptions in the gym. This week, as construction is starting to ramp up, we will be posting more content on social media! Make sure to follow us for Stories on our updates and additional photos you may not get via email! Our walls from Walltopia are closing in on the Canadian border from their transatlantic voyage, with our Bulgarian friends coming shortly after.
BOOlder Night & Closing
The Grotto is expecting to close for renovations the first week of November (official date TBD). In true Grotto fashion, we are going out with a bang! Friday, October 29 we will be closed for the day in order to do an entire boulder reset for our BOOlder Night. This is a classic boulder night that the Grotto would frequently host! We'll have glow in the dark climbing, a DJ, costumes, and giveaways! You can sign up on our website or sign up here. Of course, BOOlder Night will continue in our new gym - it isn't going away anytime soon!
Featured Gym Feature
One thing that we're most excited about is our isolation section (currently unnamed...). This is a designated section for things that are likely to disrupt our normal climbing nights such as:
Competitions & more!
Memberships & Such
Members have been asking about what's happening when we close, so we figured we would give a quick rundown for everyone - it's pretty similar to our lockdown routine:
Prepaid: Your membership will be paused and reactivated on the first day we are open! There will be no fee for freezing during this time. Memberships will remain active at our new facility.
EFT: Your membership will be frozen and reactivated similar to Prepaid members. No freezing fee will occur. Once we
reopen, members will individually be charged accordingly so no one is mischarged.
Punch Passes: Your passes don't expire! You don't need to stress - they carry forward into the new gym.
Members will receive an email from the Guelph Grotto about a membership deal at Core Climbing as well as more information about the Grotto's temporary closing.
