Petra Cliffs Updates

This page will be continually updated.

On March 15, we announced that Petra Cliffs would temporarily close due to the outbreak of COVID-19. This was an incredibly difficult choice for us, but one that we felt was necessary to protect our staff and community. Our decision has been well received by our community, and we thank you for that. We will post updates here, but please feel free to reach out to us if you have questions that are not answered here. 

Ways you can continue to support Petra Cliffs


We recognize that our decision to close temporarily impacts your ability to climb. We understand that you may be considering a change to your membership; we would like to emphasize that we still bring you value during this closure. Please read the letter below for the available options so that our community and staff can be here for you when we re-open.

Program Bookings and Group Events

For the time being, we are not taking new program bookings. If you have a previously booked program, expect us to reach out to you soon. We will credit and reschedule your program when we know we will be open for events. 

Climbing Teams: For the time being, team practices are cancelled and two weeks will be added to the end of the session. Coaches will be in touch with workouts, videos and activities for team members.
