“Walk into Brooklyn Boulders, the Gowanus warehouse-turned-climbing-gym, and you might ask yourself: What’s with all these grunting people dangling, their bodies contorted into impossibly precarious positions!”

Besides indoor rock climbing, Brooklyn Boulders offers a wide variety of classes, from basic climbing to slacklining (a type of tightrope walking that is popular with climbers).

“As far as practice sites go, Brooklyn Boulders—a converted truck garage off Third Avenue in Gowanus—is exactly what you’d want from an out-of-Manhattan fitness experience.”

“Brooklyn Boulders, as the cavernous, 22,000-square-foot playground is known, is the city’s largest and possibly most popular rock-climbing gym. But it is more than just a destination for adventure athletes.”

“The Adaptive Climbing Group is the brainchild of Kareemah Batts – she came around to the sport after a battle with cancer that cost her a part of a leg. She then found that she wanted to climb with other amputees and formed the group.”
