    I was actually just thinking about this the other day . . . 1400 commercial climbing gyms in the US and not one in Chicago? When is someone gonna capitalize on that? Well . . . here we are. About time.

    There are actually a ton of great climbing options already available in the city. Chicago Fitness Report has a full list: http://www.chicagofitnessreport.com/climbing-walls. That being said, I agree that FA will probably be the best.
