Rowerowa sztafeta, jakiej jeszcze nie było. Dookoła świata!

The slower the kiss, the faster the heartbea

For anyone who is a diehard boulderer, the thought of tying in and being able to pull hard on moves after anything more than several feet of climbing can be extremely daunting.  No matter how easy the moves feel in […]

To start, we’d like to address a common misconception that may lead to frustration: we are not just a climbing gym – we aspire to be much more than that. Climbing is core to what we do and we love it for the same reasons most do: the mental and physical challenge and its innate ability to bring diverse people together. But our vision goes far beyond a typical climbing gym. Our vision is to build and activate a space where humans can truly connect, a platform for creative and physical expression – and what the end result looks like will be largely influenced by our community.

With that being said, we’re excited to highlight our newest upgrade: renovations in our front top-roping area – if you haven’t seen the beautiful new walls and our updated Brooklyn Bridge wall, come check it out for a climb:

brooklyn-bridge-climbing-wall-2 And yes, you can’t openly smear on our walls due to the light texture. It’s more than an aesthetic choice: smoother walls allow for our setting team to create problems with more intention. The limitation of where one may place their foot also forces a creative constraint and challenge for climbers (#hatersgonnasmearthough).

We’re also excited to formally announce the soft launch of a new addition to Brooklyn Boulders: a room dedicated to our team of personal trainers, Beast climbers and those seriously committed to training, named The Lair. Inside is not just a systems wall but a specially designed training room, where we also host our climbing technique classes and other skill-based sessions. This dedicated space was intentionally designed to be separate from the rest of our facility to provide an environment to train with uninterrupted focus.

Currently, we’re also soft-testing a special product that allows purchase of personal training sessions in bulk for a discount that includes complimentary open access to the space.

Lastly, we read many of the comments on the Internet and appreciate the passion from our community; we just much prefer real life conversations and our Community Experience team is awesome – email them with any issue you have or even just to say hi (if you did that, they’d be stoked – just ask for Vicky or Bobby).  

We know we won’t please everyone, and often times not those who are looking for a traditional climbing gym. Our vision is to create a place to encourage the entrepreneurial and creative spirit inside all of us. We want a place that inspires people to change themselves and to change the world as they see it.

We’re for those who wake up everyday and want to express themselves in a variety of ways – for those who are training for the zombie apocalypse, dreaming of free soloing El Cap, or aiming to become a Ninja Warrior. We’re for those who are passionate about intertwining art and physical movement. We’re for those who want to conquer their fears and train themselves mentally. We’re for the youth training for Nationals, dreaming of the Olympics. We’re for those who want a place to work that’s not a coffee shop, where you can be active, to do what the human body was meant to do – play. We’re for those who want to create the world they want to live in – we’ve incubated companies and have been the starting point for many groups and startups like Brothers of Climbing, Adaptive Climbing Group, Hueco Hacienda, Urban Plastix, Flash Foxy (if you want to start your own, hit us up) and more.

We are also a business and our pricing reflects what is needed to provide our members with benefits and dynamic, diverse experiences, to pay salaries and invest in the career development of our dedicated, passionate and hardworking team members, and to be able to grow as a community.

Community is at the heart of what we do. We wake up everyday inspired by those in it and are working hard to grow opportunities for everyone to create something. We’re a platform where you can pitch any idea – to host an event (public or private), curate an art show, start a book club, host a competition, paint a mural, assemble a panel, forge a partnership or collaboration…the only limit is your imagination. We also encourage you to take any complaints and constructively turn them into ideas for a new initiative or on how we could do better – we are all ears.

So now we’re asking our community: our Brooklyn ‘OG’ location is seven years old and will continue to evolve – what do you want to see next?

  1. Systems Wall
  2. Bigger Fitness Area
  3. Improved Co-Working Spaces
  4. More Training Classes
  5. More Competitions
  6. Or Something Else…

Fill the form out here to tell us.

With #bkblove,

The Brooklyn Boulders Team

For beauty off the beaten path, venture two hours southwest of Albuquerque, New Mexico to the Sierra Ladrones Wilderness Study Area. There are no trails through the area’s diverse landscapes of high mountain peaks, isolated canyons and badlands. Hiking to the top of Ladrones Mountain – pictured here during a storm – rewards visitors with stunning panoramic views of the area’s mesa grasslands and piñon-juniper woodland.

Considered one of the biggest (and best) granite walls in the High Sierra, the Incredible Hulk is on the bucket list of just about every alpine climber. And it’s no surprise, given that many of the routes on the Incredible Hulk were first developed by legendary climber, Peter Croft—who continues to establish new, hard lines on this iconic wall today.

With a multitude of hard routes that delve well into the 12+ range, this staggering 1500-foot wall guarantees a challenging all-day adventure, no matter who you are. Not to mention that getting to the base (which sits at 11,000 feet) requires a 5-mile approach, involving several thousand feet of elevation and plenty of talus.

In this week’s Friday Flick Pick, follow Alex Honnold and Emily Harrington as they set out to climb Solar Flare (5.12d, 9 pitches) on this majestic chunk of rock.

Alex wants to simul-climb the first four pitches, but I was thinking we’d just climb it like normal people—but he can’t like, chill …

Martina Cufar Potard, the World Champion 2001, has done her second 8c, Max Power in Bionnassay. "Hard for me (crux being a long move)!!! I didn't count the tries...but I knew the moves before I even tried it, when belaying Nico 5 years ago (pregnant) when he did the FA. He told me I am supposed to do the first female ascent...it took me one summer of serious tries:-)" The Slovenian did her first 8c in 2005, at the same time as she finished her very successful competition career, which started some 20 years ago. Martina was the first world class competition climber from Slovenia. It is also interesting that she just climbs and does some campus only once in a while. In total, she projected the 8c for some 20+ sessions but now she says will be back on onsight mode again.

Chris Sharma opened the DWS Es Pontas ten years ago. No grade suggestion was forwarded but he agreed that it might be a 9b and in fact nobody has come close to repeating it. Now Chris reports on Facebook that he has done something similar. (c) Adrian Garcia "Last week I was able to send a long term project that I'd been trying over the last 5 years on the northwest coast of Mallorca. In honor of my beautiful daughter I named the line #Alasha. So proud of this one. I really had to work hard, dig deep and pull out all the tricks in the book. As you can see it's quite a stunning piece of stone in a very epic location. It's a very different style to Es Pontas but I'd say it's somewhere in the similar difficulty range. In this picture I'm entering the crux boulder sequence (maybe around 8B) at about 18 meters high. Somewhat auspicious was the fact I sent it around the 10 year anniversary of my ascent of Es Pontas . As time passes , it's crazy to see so many things change and yet the passion is still quite the same. Life is good! A nice note to be entering the climbing season on! So much gratitude to my wife."

The following post is a Campfire: a short story of 110 words or less and one photo. Want to take on the challenge? Submit your Campfire here.


Early morning, the journey begins.
Your Backpack, your buddy, your breath, you.
The steps so easy, the Vision so clear.

Lunchtime, this pitch seems endless.
The gear on your harness, the partner on belay, your stomach growls, you.
Meter after meter, the summit still far.

Evening, was it too much?
Everything wet, in desperation, exhausted, you.
Minute after minute, what is the goal?

Late at night, everything hurts.
Shot from the peak, legs in the bag, far below zero, you.
Summit is half time, descending tomorrow, why such pain?

A glimpse of a falling star, for this one moment!
