There are a lot of new gyms opening around the country these days, but the announcement this week that my home gym, Adventure Rock, is opening a 2nd location later this year was really exciting to finally see:
Adventure Rock Climbing Gym, the premier climbing facility in Wisconsin, announces plans for the construction of its second location in the city of Milwaukee. The facility will be located on the Eastside at 2240 North Commerce Street; construction is expected to break ground mid-summer of 2014 for an official opening in December of 2014.
The climbing wall manufacturer chosen for the job is Boulder, Colorado based Eldorado Climbing Walls. The climbing wall design for the facility includes over 18,000 square feet of climbing terrain, with wall heights up to 42 feet tall, of that terrain, 2,000 square feet will be dedicated to bouldering. The facility will also include a dedicated fitness area, pro-shop and some of the most helpful staff in the industry.
I can’t wait to check it out!
