Learn more about our gym and the sport of climbing!
Climbing is an incredible sport that made its inaugural debut at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan in the summer of 2021. We make the sport accessible to all ages and all ability levels with our five (5) incredible indoor climbing locations across Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.
Our Malden location was constructed in 2022 and opened its doors on Thursday, December 1 of that year. This location features a form of climbing called bouldering, where our route setters create body movement puzzles known as “problems” that are set closer to the ground, but offer a stronger focus on community and training.
We have a continuous padded flooring system and down-climb holds designed to reduce the impact on our climbers with every fall, but the sport of climbing is inherently dangerous so we provide a complete safety orientation with every climber’s first visit. This ensures everyone is confident in our facility’s features and protocols so that they can focus on having fun on our climbs.
Bouldering is a great access point to the sport, complimenting the top rope climbs featured at our other locations. It’s a great indoor activity you can enjoy with friends and family that will keep you healthy all year long while having fun and being part of a growing and inclusive community.
