The Cliffs Member FAQ
Do I have to sign a new participant agreement?
- Yes, please complete a new participant agreement via The Cliffs Website before your next visit. Do not fill out a participant agreement on Movement’s website.
Will I be allowed access to all Movement locations and when does this start?
Members now have access to Movement locations across the nation! All memberships now grant access to all locations; memberships are based on facility specific pricing – dues are set based on sign up location and where you frequent the most*
*Off-Peak members excluded – these remain single facility access with the late entry + remote visit fees still in effect at all Movement locations
Need to submit a membership change request?
Please continue to submit membership requests via The Cliffs website until further notice. Navigate to your home gym’s page, use the membership menu, and select “edit membership”
What’s happening with my membership perks?
Your member perks will include guest passes, retail and class discounts, unlimited group yoga and fitness classes—and access to every Movement gym across the country!
We’ll be aligning membership perks in mid-March, but until then you can still use your guest passes at any gym across the country!
Will business hours be changing?
Business hours will remain the same!
Will I need to redo my top rope or lead check?
No. Movement will be honoring the belay status of anyone with a permanent belay card issued by The Cliffs.
I have unused value on a gift card – are those still valid?
Yes! You can continue to use your gift card at any of the former The Cliffs locations! You’ll also be able to use them at any Movement location across the nation once our systems are linked, which is expected in mid-March.
Should I expect any changes in the setting style or frequency at any gym?
At the outset, we will not be changing anything related to routesetting product or offering. We want to keep what makes The Cliffs routesetting program awesome!
What happens to events?
You should expect events to run as planned, including the annual bouldering series!
Guest Passes: Can I use my guest passes at other Movement locations?
Cliffs members have 4 guest passes they can use through mid-March when we anticipate integrating our systems.
Do I need to switch scan tags?
We do have the new Movement scantags at the front desk. Switching to them is optional for existing Cliffs members!
Movement Member FAQ
Will I be allowed access to all The Cliffs locations and when does this start?
Yes! Starting Monday, December 11th Movement members will have access to all gyms — in New York City and Philadelphia metro areas and across the nation! Movement members will need to fill out a new participant agreement at The Cliffs locations.
Will I need to redo my top rope or lead check to climb at the The Cliffs gyms?
No need to update your top rope or lead climb tags—they’ll work at all roped gyms. Lead belay tags will need to be updated because The Cliffs gyms require the use of an Assisted Braking Device (ABD) to lead belay. Callowhill, Gowanus, LIC and Valhalla also have auto belays and you’ll need to complete an orientation and get an updated harness tag to use them.
Guest Passes: Can I use my guest passes there?
Movement members have 4 guest passes they can use through mid-March when we anticipate integrating our systems. NY + PA locations are unable to honor daily 2 new climber guest passes
Punches: Can I use my 7-punch pass there?
Unfortunately, until our systems are integrated, punches are unable to be redeemed at NY + PA locations. We expect this to be possible in late March.
