Rockreation will be reopening again on September 14th, 2020!

Orange County has recently moved to the Substantial risk level allowing for certain non essential businesses to reopen with certain limitations. Gyms are among the businesses on the approved list. We are excited about the news, and about being able to open our doors again to our wonderful community. Please see below for more information and to reserve your spot to climb!

We will be posting updates as we receive them, please check our social media sites @rockreation or @rockreationLA

Rockreation Updates

Rockreation Reopening Phase 1 (resuming 9/14):

Update 9/8/20

Dear Rockreation Members,


These are trying times and we hope that you are doing well. The Governor of California has unveiled new guidelines for reopening procedures. LA and Orange County are still on the watchlist as of today. Once a county is taken off the watchlist, it will be a countdown of 21 days to be moved to a lower tier. You can look at the details here:




September dues- we will be drafting a $7 freeze fee in September, same as last month.  We appreciate your support thus far and hope for your continued support this month.


  • Option 1: Pay your regular dues or a custom dues amount.

If you opt for Option 1, follow this link!

  • Option 2: Pay a $7 freeze fee to help support Rockreation through the 2nd round of closures.

If you opt for Option 2, NO ACTION IS NEEDED.

  • Option 3: Pay zero and freeze your account until we are able to open again.

If you opt for Option 3, please contact your respective gym contact:

We will continue to ride the wave and look forward to seeing you all back at the climbing center. In the meantime, make sure to visit our Instagram page for weekly Yoga and Fitness classes!

Update 7/13/20
We are extremely saddened by the most recent news. We were just starting to believe that we could enjoy climbing and our community of climbers again.  The Governor of California called for the immediate closure of fitness gyms that have been on the county watchlist for more than 3 consecutive days.

Rockreation will be closing again on July 13th, 2020 until further notice.

We will be posting updates as we receive them, please check our social media sites @rockreation or @rockreationLA

Update 6/22/20

Rockreation is opened to the public by reservation only. See the links above to sign up for membership and to make a reservation with us! Excited to see you (safely) soon!

Update 6/15/20

Thank you to everyone for your patience during our closure. We are excited to announce that Rockreation will be reopening its doors Monday, 6/22/2020 to members only. Living with Covid-19 has been challenging, but we are hoping to make new indoor climbing life as simple as possible.  If you feel that you are not ready to come to the gym, we hope to see you in our virtual Yoga and Fitness Classes.

We plan to open up in 3 phases. State and local guidelines will determine when we will see more parts of the gym open up and capacity increases. Our management team will be reviewing information daily but making decisions every two weeks. We are balancing providing the best possible service, with your health in mind. 

Prorated membership fees will be charged on Monday, 6/22/2020, for the rest of June. If you do not wish to be unfrozen, please email us as soon as possible, or fill out a membership change form here.

“Just because some businesses are opening doesn’t mean your risk for COVID-19 is gone. We all need to continue to keep physical distancing, wash our hands and wear face coverings in public,” said Dr. Sonia Angell, State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health. “As we continue to release guidance on how different sections can reopen with modifications, it is important to remember guidance doesn’t mean ‘go.’ Your local health officer will make the final decision about which sectors will open, guided by data specific to your community.”
