Minnesota-based Vertical Endeavors has announced they will start construction of a new bouldering gym in the Prospect Park neighborhood of St. Paul, Minnesota. The facility will be built by Nicros and consist of modern amenities such as a fitness and training area, multi-purpose fitness studio for groups and classes as well as regular yoga classes.
The building clocks in at 30,000 square feet and will house 16,000 square feet of climbing surface.
This new gym will be VE’s 5th Minnesota location and its first bouldering-only facility. The company also operates what is currently the US’s largest commercial climbing facility in Glendale Heights, outside of Chicago, Illinois.
