The Gravity Vault
Montclair, New Jersey
Specs: 12,000-square-foot facility is tentatively scheduled to open in the spring of 2021. The gym will be the first Gravity Vault location to be specifically bouldering-focused. The facility will also include an expansive fitness and training area, a yoga space, and a pro shop.
In Their Words: “Montclair New Jersey is an amazing community and we are excited to finally have found the perfect space and partner to open our facility with. We view our facilities as community centers, rooting in the neighborhoods we build in and bringing people together from young and old, novice to expert climbers alike. We thrive where people can come together and climb and help one another reach new heights and then go out and enjoy all that the area has to offer. We love the culture found along Bloomfield Avenue, and can’t wait to open our front doors directly across the new pedestrian walkway to the 2,000+ seat Wellmont Theater. Developers Ironstate and Brookfield understand how to create a destination and bring in complementary amenities and services that will attract visitors and give them a reason to stay. We are also excited to have this be the first bouldering-only facility in our brand. Many more bouldering gyms will follow.”
