Atlanta-based Stone Summit is on track to open their third climbing facility and it’s going to be a bouldering gym. The new space will be located in the Midtown area of Atlanta and is part of a large development project that includes a trendy burger restaurant, co-working space, and coffee shop.
According to ACJ.com, Co-owners Daniel Luke and Daron Pair had been looking for a new space anywhere from East Atlanta to West Midtown for the past fours years but struggled with finding a good location that had parking and ceiling heights suitable for a bouldering gym.
The building has 505 parking spaces and an old Bank of America data center that will be turned into the climbing area. Stone Summit will take up to 10,000 square feet of the space with an estimated 5,000 square feet of bouldering terrain.
Unlike Stone Summit’s other locations, the new bouldering gym will not offer fitness classes, such as yoga and pilates, but will have a workout room with cardio equipment and free weights.
Atlanta currently has three commercial climbing facilities including one Stone Summit. Their new bouldering gym which is located in the heart of Atlanta will be the city’s first bouldering-only facility.
