How the hive survives covid-19

We get by, with a little help from our friends!

We are proud to be a locally owned and operated small business. With over 145 employees, the impact of our recent closure has been devastating. Despite the potential of future government support, we have had to take the necessary and unfortunate step of temporarily laying off nearly our entire staff team. While a skeleton crew remains in place to prepare for our reopening, it is unclear how long we may need to sustain this, and we are doing everything we can to make sure The Hive is there for its community of climbers and employees once this is all over.

Here’s how you can help (we hope this helps you, too)

To keep the roof over our holds while we’re closed, we’re running an online pre-sale of various Hive products at 25% off.  We know this comes at an inopportune time, and there is no obligation to help. We want you to look after yourself and each other first and foremost. If you are able to support us, we are eternally grateful. With your help we are confident that we will come back strong, and when we do, we’ll be thrilled to climb with you!

Mandatory Orientation for New Visitors

Every first-time visitor to The Hive is required to attend an orientation & fall assessment prior to climbing. The focus of this session is on proper falling technique, general risk management, etiquette, and rules of the gym. 

Please note well:
The falling techniques and other information covered in our orientation are specific to The Hive’s indoor environment and may not be applicable or effective when bouldering outdoors. All first time visitors to the Hive must read and complete a facility waiver – this orientation is not a suitable replacement for learning to boulder and fall safely outdoors.

Details for supervision requirements for youth

Under 19: Parent or Guardian signature required. All climbers under the age of 19 years must have the signature of a parent or legal guardian stating that they understand the risks of bouldering, and assume responsibility for their youth.

In order to reduce the risk of injury, we have specific parent-to-child supervisory ratios, depending on the age of the children. Parent:child ratios are as follows:

Up to 6: 1:1

Parent/Guardian provides constant supervision and may not climb. Child must be within arm’s reach of supervising adult at all times. Children in this age range are still developing spatial awareness and the ability to understand potential for harm.

Age 7-9: 1:2

Parent/Guardian is required to remain within arms’ reach of both children at all times, meaning the children must climb together. Parent/Guardian may not climb. Children under 10 may still be developing the cognitive ability to be mindful of people around them, which means parents must stay within arms reach to ensure children do not wander into a fall zone.

Age 10-12: 1:4

This age range requires a parent on the mats. The parent is not required to remain in arm’s reach while the children are climbing, but the supervisor may not climb.

Age 13-15: 1:4

Parents must be present and available in the facility, but are not required to be on the mats while the youth are climbing unless the children prove to be at increased risk of harm to themselves or others.
If it’s your children’s first time at the gym, the parent or guardian of children 13-15 should be present with the children for the start of the session until the kids become familiar with the climbing gym environment and its risks.

Ages 16+

Youth may climb without adult supervision assuming they are able to behave appropriately as a positive part of the community.

The Hive reserves the right to require additional supervision of youth who prove incapable of responsible behaviour on their own. Such decisions will be made in good faith.
