The Circuit Bouldering Gym

Bouldering differs from other forms of rock climbing in a variety of ways, such as its heightened social element. When top roping, for example, climbers are more isolated, relying on a partner below to maintain rope tension. But because bouldering is done on lower courses that don't require a rope or harness, climbers are free to scale walls at will, often resulting in people sharing walls and striking up conversations in between surmounting terrain such as verticals, slabs, and roof climbs—overhangs that put climbers' bodies parallel to the floor.

That's how The Circuit Bouldering Gym got started. Some bouldering enthusiasts crossed paths at a local gym and found they all wanted to expand Portland's bouldering options. Today, they welcome guests to surmount courses—including a hanging boulder—ranging from 8- to 17-feet high and surrounded by crash-pad flooring. Boasting three of the largest bouldering-only gyms in the world, they also designed many of their simulated climbing stations as top-out boulders, letting guests experience what it's like to stand atop a boulder in the Rockies or on the moon. Additionally, they instruct guests with programs such as 90-minute intro courses, advanced clinics with professional climber athletes, and programs tailored for kids including birthday parties,summer and winter-break camps.
Between climbs, a lounge area lets visitors relax and swap tales of defying gravity's relentless bullying. The third and newest location in Tigard offers more than 19,000 square feet of brand new boulders. To further build the bouldering community, the gym's team organizes an annual fundraiser benefiting local charities. All locations also have a full weights area, allowing for workouts and CrossFit training between climbs. .

Reviews

There was a lot to choose from in terms of lines and different types of terrain to climb. I really liked that there was a slack line.

I go because I've learned rock climbing is the most badass way to exercise and have a good time.
