Professional daredevils and fitness fanatics scurry and stretch freely throughout Bridges Rock Gym's spacious indoor rockscape primed for slacklining, bouldering, roped climbing, and yoga. Open to every skill level, Bridges Rock Gym's fully padded 18-foot-high top-out boulders, deep overhanging cave, and bouldering puzzles feature grip layouts overseen by X-Games medalist Chris Bloch. The gym also houses equipment for the burgeoning sport of slacklining, which combines the challenge of tightrope walking with the comfortable thrills of low-altitudinal action.

When guests need a break from climbing and rope walking, they can always melt in the sauna or socialize with fellow earth-tamers at the cozy, on-site organic café. And, in the interest of those who develop a taste for tightrope dancing or tricky boulders, Bridges Rock Gym will waive the $85 initiation fee for Groupon customers seeking future membership.

Reviews

Yelpers give Bridges Rock Gym a 4.5-star average:

  • This place is awesome! I am not a rock climber, but I found it to be way more fun to work out there verses [sic] a regular gym. – Daisy A.
  • This place is just incredible...The more you explore, the more fun things you find. – Will T.

Bridges Rock Gym

A chalky hand swings over the top of the wall, grasping onto the red hold embedded in its surface. After a tense moment, a second hand swings up, pulling the rest of the climber's body up with it. Having successfully scaled the boulder, the climber scurries back down the wall she has just conquered, swapping places with her spotter below.

This cycle repeats throughout the day at Bridges Rock Gym, spurred on by a crew of climbing enthusiasts and instructors who initiate people into the low-altitude sport of bouldering. That form of climbing emphasizes solving climbing problems and chasing archaeologists through ancient caves. The gym unleashes visitors' inner mountain goats with their well-maintained climbing facilities, including an overhanging indoor-climbing cave that thoroughly punishes muscles into growth and top-rope climbing walls that help beginners get the hang of scaling the crag.

While specializing in the art of ascents, Bridges also bolsters patron fitness. Yoga and fitness classes, as well as a fleet of cardio equipment, facilitate heart-strengthening workouts. Waves of free WiFi allow mountaineers uninterrupted access to videos of their pet rocks, best enjoyed with a fresh house-made juice or sandwich in the gym's lounge.

It's a nice gym and there are some nice routes, but they really need to clean and replace a lot of their rocks.
