Bigfoot Climbing Gym
Morganton, NC

Specs: 10,000-square-foot bouldering gym shares its building with a health-conscious grocery store. The gym also features a “party room.” Youth climbing team programming, monthly climbing competitions, and Indoor to Outdoor Climbing transition clinics are also part of the gym’s offerings. According to the gym’s owners, Morganton was chosen as the location for the facility because of the city’s proximity to substantial outdoor crags and because the next nearest climbing gym was one hour away. The owners also note that Morganton is particularly supportive of small business growth and is “a great place to raise a family.” (Note: The gym recently posted an opening for a routesetter/co-manager on the CBJ jobs board).
