COVID-19 Update & How you can help!

We hope you are all staying well. We wanted to reach out and update you on the latest news regarding our reopening. As many of you may have heard, Governor Cooper has decided not to move forward with Phase Three, again. Unfortunately, this means our gyms will remain closed for at least another 5 weeks.

We understand this is disappointing as you are eager to get back on the wall. Not to mention, we’ve put a lot of work into developing COVID-19 protocols that will mitigate risk to both employees and members in the hope of a speedy reopening.

However, we remain incredibly humbled by the support we’ve received (and continue to receive) these past few months. Your contributions have made a huge impact on our small business, specifically allowing us to keep a number of our staff employed.

As we prepare to enter our 6th month of closure, we need your help once again. How can you make a difference? Below we’ve listed all the ways you can show your support, both morally and financially.


Calling all our members! If you are financially able, we ask that you consider opting-in for billing. All billing opt-ins go to help pay staff wages. If you opt-in you get our yoga classes & fitness classes for FREE. Fill out the opt-in form here.


Shout it out to the world, we are running day camps! In light of COVID-19 and based on current CDC, local government, and American Camp Association (ACA) Best Practices recommendations, Inner Peaks has changed all previously scheduled Summer Camps to Mini Day Camps. This allows us to host camps while the gyms are closed to all other climbers. Tell all your friends and family to sign up. Register here!


We have some awesome gear and apparel in stock at both our Matthews and South End locations — including guide books, harnesses, climbing shoes, carabiners, chalk and more. Grab everything you need to be out at the crag!
