Austin Bouldering Project, Westgate
Specs: Recently opened 25,000-square-foot bouldering-focused gym also includes fitness equipment and yoga instruction, social spaces, and a variety of programming. The gym also includes two Grasshopper boards—one with a Grasshopper hold set, and the other with a Kilter hold set. “New gym. New strength. A new place to discover real climbing,” an Instagram post from the gym stated ahead of the grand opening.
The Westgate facility is located approximately 10 miles away from Austin Bouldering Project’s Springdale gym, located in the eastern part of the city. Other Bouldering Project gyms exist in Seattle (Fremont, Poplar and Upper Walls) and Minneapolis. A seventh Bouldering Project is planned to open in Salt Lake City this winter.

In Their Words: “We create spaces for people to gather, ignite projects, and engage in health, friendship, and purpose. We are a project; we want to grow thoughtfully and provide new spaces for the expanding group of people who experience real movement and real human connection within our walls. At the Bouldering Project, you decide what climbing means to you, how you want to move, and why. Our commitment remains the same—to create inspiring and inclusive climbing, movement, and community spaces.”
