Training to Climb at Brooklyn Boulders

  • Brooklyn Boulders 575 Degraw St Brooklyn, NY (map)

Check out the newly renovated Brooklyn Boulders Climbing Gym and get training with their BKB Fit program to become a better climber. 

Today you'll be able to explore Brooklyn Boulders, try out their training classes including Stretch & Flex and P3 Core, take a tour, and enjoy some friendly competition.

After you're pumped, join our "caravan" leaving the gym at 5:30 to head to the final party at Whole Foods. 

You must arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled session to check in and sign a waiver. Open climbing available after your session too! 

We encourage participants to wear athletic clothing that is easy to move around in. 

Workshop descriptions:

Gym orientation

2:00PM or 3:30 PM | 

Climbing is an unbelievably extensive, and often times intimidating, universe. At Brooklyn Boulders, we exist to inspire, and strive to welcome you in to our community. We want you to achieve progress, success, and the thrill of victory. Today, you'll get a tour of the gym as well as tips and tricks to the perfect plan for you whether your brand new or have been climbing for years. Afterwards, take your belay test (if you're ready) or jump on a bouldering route to give it a go! 

P3 CORE class (advanced only)

2:00PM or 3:45PM | 

Want a one time only free sample of BKB's P3 CORE class? Join our Head Instructor, Luke Livesy and work on improving your lock off strength and contact strength, and more! If you are a V5 climber and above or have been climbing regularly for at least 2 years, then this is the clinic for you!

Stretch & Flex Class 

3:45 - 4:15PM | 

Don't feel like adding any more work outs to your work week? Why not actively recover and stretch through it!
