We are a rock climbing gym located in Culver City offering climbing and fitness. Cliffs of Id first opened its doors in 2015 as a bouldering gym and fitness facility.
In 2016, we expanded to include top rope and lead climbing, bringing next-level fitness to Culver City. We now offer 26,000 sq ft of climbing terrain and a variety of yoga and fitness classes. We are part of the Touchstone Climbing Gym family, which means you have a reciprocal membership to all Touchstone gyms in California.

Lifting Covid Restrictions
LA city recently announced lifting the vaccine mandate for indoor businesses.
This means Cliffs of Id will now return to normal operations with no covid restrictions.
During the pandemic, we have always followed State and County guidelines and mandates.
We understand the recent changes may feel sudden for some and belated for others. We encourage everyone to keep doing what makes them comfortable in the gym. Please remain respectful and understanding of others.
We are looking forward to a return to normalcy and putting Covid updates behind us.
New Year’s Zero Initiation is here!
Jump start those 2022 fitness goals by joining the Touchstone community and climbing into a new habit this year. The $100 initiation fee will be waived for new members through the rest of January.
You can grab this deal online, so don’t forget to sign up on the website before grabbing your shoes and chalk bag on your way into the gym!
Due to the surge in Omicron cases and new CDC safety guidelines, we are reducing our gym staffing for the next few weeks. In an attempt to prevent further gym closures, we will be limiting access to members and 10-pass holders only. There will be no day passes, ICC classes, or any member guest passes as we ride out this COVID wave. Your patience and understanding during this unexpected change is greatly appreciated.
Gym Update Vaccine Requirement:
With Los Angeles now requiring proof of vaccination for all gym users, Touchstone will be implementing this policy at all Los Angeles locations starting Thursday, October 21st.
You can either show your physical card, your digital card or a photo of your card at the front desk. If you do not wish to show your card each time you enter, we can, at your request, place a note on your account that we have seen proof of vaccination. This is optional and we will only note we have seen your card if you give us permission to do so. Children under 12, who are ineligible to be vaccinated, will be exempt from the requirement.
Masks are still required at ALL times while in the gyms.
Thank you again for choosing to support us and for being a part of our community. We hope that you all have been enjoying your time back at the gyms. Let’s continue to take care of one another.

California is set to fully reopen on Tuesday, June 15th! That means a lot of exciting changes here at Cliffs of Id and here is what you can expect.
Starting on Tuesday, there will be no need to make reservations at any of the Touchstone gyms! You are free to come in and use the gyms anytime during normal business hours. Day pass visitors, if you bought a day pass for this next week, it’s still valid. Just show up on the day you originally reserved.
Fitness Classes + Climbing Clinics:
The gyms will be adding in-person fitness classes and climbing clinics back to the calendar! This will be a slow process so we appreciate your patience as we get back to it. We will be adding classes to the online calendars when they are available.
Masks + Vaccinations:
After much internal discussion, Touchstone has decided to continue to follow State and local guidelines around masking. Starting Tuesday, if you are fully vaccinated you may use the gym without a mask. If you are unvaccinated, you are required to wear a mask when in the gyms. We will not be tracking vaccination statuses. We ask that members and guests be responsible and respectful of their fellow community members.
People are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
For now, Touchstone staff will continue to wear masks regardless of vaccination status.
We can’t wait to see your beautiful faces!
