The guiding principle behind every decision we make at the Bouldering Project is this — what can we do to make being at our gyms the best experience possible, for every individual who walks through the door. These individuals are serious climbers, recreational climbers, and first-time climbers. They are parents, kiddos, and budding teenagers. They are athletes training for marathons and enthusiasts using climbing to reach health and fitness goals, and yogis practicing their flow. These individuals are also our staff — an amazing, hard working, devoted, driven, inspired, and inspiring group of people.
