CBJ is proud to announce that its gym map has been updated and redesigned. The map features a detailed listing of every climbing gym in the United States and Canada.
The gym map can be searched according to climbing type, opening year, and whether a facility is operational or still in its planning and development stages. There are upgrades planned and your feedback is welcome. In the coming months additional updates and filters are planned to be released, including size of facility, features like IFSC speed wall and training boards, programs like yoga and day care, and more.
“The CBJ Gym Map is a valuable resource for staying up-to-date on the rapidly changing landscape of indoor climbing in North America. Thanks CBJ!” – Jackie Hueftle, Kilter

Tools For Climbing Industry Professionals
The gym map has been a hallmark of CBJ since the website’s early days, and has proven useful for countless gym development projects over the years. The map data also underpins CBJ’s annual Gyms and Trends report.
Along with the gym map, a Jobs & Professionals section has been added to CBJ’s homepage, making it easier for users to access and search job openings in the climbing industry. If you are looking for good talent, posting your job on CBJ can help you find it.
And, as part of the new map’s unveiling, this month’s Behind the Desk column features an interview with Jon Lachelt, owner of Ascent Studio in Fort Collins, Colorado, and the mastermind behind the original gym map’s data functionality.
