COVID-19 Measures

All climbers, participants, spectators and guardians must agree to follow all COVID-19 guidelines set forth by Petra Cliffs in accordance with State of Vermont Executive Orders. Visit our website ( for a detailed description of these policies and current requirements.

We have no strict age cut-off for either group; we have found it's best to work with each member of the team to identify his or her skill level, goals, and maturity level. Taking those factors into consideration, our coaches are able to help each climber find the best fit for them!

If climbers advance to the Divisional or National competitions, Petra Cliffs will work with the individual climbers to develop additional climbing & training sessions beyond the scope of normal practices. 

Please call the gym at 802.657.3872 with any questions.
