Looking for a place to climb the walls? You’ll definitely find it at BRC – Boulder Rock Club.
This is Boulder’s original climbing gym. In fact, it was one of the first climbing gyms in the country when it opened its doors in 1991. Since then, people of all ages and abilities have embraced rock climbing, from kids all the way to professional climbers.
So what can you expect when you walk through the doors of Boulder Rock Club? First, it’s not just a climbing gym. You’ll find a complete curriculum of fitness classes ranging from yoga to Pilates and personal training. Whether you’re new to climbing or seasoned on both ends of the rope, BRC has everything you need for every type of climbing you’re looking to master.
The gym boasts over 200 routes that are set multiple times a week. It’s rumored that there’s no route in the gym that’s over two months old! There are areas designated strictly for lead climbing and top roping is available on numerous routes throughout the gym. You can even go bouldering indoors — and it sure beats getting caught in the weather on sketchy Colorado weather days when you’re trying to decide whether to make a drive.
The gym is also a fantastic place for parents to introduce their kids to rock climbing. They offer programs like Tiny Tots (ages 3 1/2 to 5-years-old) and a wide variety of youth rock climbing programs for kids of all ages and abilities. They also offer Summer Camp programs and special events like birthday parties — all you have to do is ask!
Indoor rock climbing in Boulder boasts plenty of venues, but locals are pretty partial to the long-standing reputation of BRC. Between the newly expanded fitness programs and a recent facility renovation, they’re no longer the old kid on the rock climbing block. They’ve always been a world-class facility with world-class climbers and route setters — now, they’ve just undergone a face lift to make their guests even more comfortable tying in to one end or the other of a rope.
Stop by, grab a day pass — and belay on! BRC is a one-stop destination for fitness in Boulder.
