Austin, Texas

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.
