Climb Nittany
Boalsburg, PA

Specs: 10,000-square-foot facility will feature both bouldering and roped climbing (lead and top-rope), along with a speed climbing wall. Additional amenities will include a gear shop, a fitness space with cardio and weightlifting equipment, a vending area, and a “community area” with tables, chairs, and accessible Wi-Fi. Youth and adult programming will also be offered. Climb Nittany will be part of the 5.Life network of gyms; that parent company also includes Vertical Adventures, the Chambers Bouldering Gym, and the Vertical Adventures training center—all in Ohio. Climb Nittany will thus mark the first out-of-state venture for 5.Life. The genesis of the gym was a collaboration between 5.Life representatives and Josh Helke, owner of ORGANIC Climbing and Nittany Mountain Works.

In Their Words: “We have enjoyed working with the 5.Life team for many years as retailers of ORGANIC Climbing products and we could not think of a stronger, or more positive partnership to achieve our shared vision. We are dedicated to our motto, ‘building community through movement,’ and strongly believe Climb Nittany will help further solidify central Pennsylvania as a destination for outdoor recreation.”
