It was recently announced that the Triangle Rock Club in Richmond, Virginia, has finished adding a new space to its original facility. The new, adjoining building includes 14,000 square feet of climbing space—with roped walls (by Walltopia) at a height of 47 feet and padded flooring by Futurist. A speed climbing wall is also part of the addition. Also, a door in the new building allows for access to an outdoor porch with seating and patio lights.
Triangle Rock Club’s Richmond location first opened in 2018, repurposing a 24,000-square-foot facility that had previously been home to the Richmond Athletic Club. In addition to bouldering and roped climbing, the original space also features cardio equipment, a yoga space, steam rooms, a hot tub, a gear shop, showers, and locker rooms.
A press release about the new addition noted that the joining of the buildings forms “the largest indoor climbing center in Richmond,” and a previous article on CBJ priced the cost of the expansion at $2 million.
“We are thrilled to offer Richmond a truly world-class climbing experience at Triangle Rock Club,” said Joel Graybeal, Triangle Rock Club’s Managing Partner. “With the addition of these rope climbing walls, we are more than doubling our climbing terrain. We are humbled to be stewards of an awe-inspiring climbing, fitness, and yoga community in Richmond.”
Triangle Rock Club currently operates five gyms throughout North Carolina and Virginia.
