Specs: 40,000-square-foot facility will be Touchstone’s “third Southern California roped gym,” according to a press release—and will also feature bouldering and general fitness amenities. The company will be raising the roof of a preexisting building to accommodate the gym’s construction plan (which includes 40-foot-tall climbing walls). The gym’s name, Class 5, is a nod to the Yosemite Decimal System.

In Their Words: “We have a great community in LA and we’re looking forward to providing them with a large gym with lots of ropes and bouldering to serve their growing needs.
