Equipped with rental shoes, harnesses, and chalk bags, visitors can practice top-rope or lead climbing, as well as bouldering on 22,000 square feet of climbing walls from open until close. All visitors must fill out waivers on their first visit and pass a belay test to use the top ropes. To belay for a climbing partner, visitors must first pass the gym’s certification course; the gym also provides belay partners for an additional fee. In addition to climbing, facility passes also grant access to yoga, other classes, and an indoor slack line.
Guests and members of all ages and skill levels experience and explore 22,000 square feet of climbing, fitness, yoga, weight training, events, art work, co-working, and creative inspiration. A dedicated route-setting staff organizes color-coded problems on craggy, angled top-rope walls as well as bouldering walls that reach up to 15 feet. To help visitors master these walls, seasoned instructors train them in three basic types of climbing: bouldering, top-rope climbing, or lead climbing. To ease stressed muscles and promote calm reflection, staffers also lead all-ages yoga lessons and monthly yoga workshops.
Brooklyn Boulders also injects creativity into its special events and spaces, which encourage co-working, socializing, and community. Staffers invite local graffiti artists to display their murals inside, work to preserve regional climbing areas by partnering with Access Fund, and coordinate programs through its BKB Foundation—a nonprofit that provides greater access to rock climbing for kids and adults.
