BKB Community Update

Brooklyn Boulders is now the Bouldering Project in Gowanus, Somerville, and Washington D.C.


As of today, the Bouldering Project brand has acquired Brooklyn Boulders Gowanus, Eckington, and Somerville—they are now officially Brooklyn, D.C., and Boston Bouldering Project!

While that means you may see some new signage in those locations, you’ll continue to experience the best-in-class climbing experience you’ve come to expect from us. You’ll also continue to see many of the friendly faces from the Brooklyn Boulders team. 

Much like BKB, the Bouldering Project strives to create spaces where all individuals can feel a sense of belonging in our sport and culture. They infuse inspiration, joy, and meaningful human connection into climbing. Founded in Seattle in 2011 and built by climbers, the Bouldering Project set out to build a place that would broaden the horizons of what indoor climbing could be. Since then, they have built Bouldering Projects in Seattle, Austin, Minneapolis, and soon-to-open Salt Lake City. We wholeheartedly believe in what Bouldering Project stands for and its ethos as a company. 

The Bouldering Project also recognizes that each gym is unique because of its locale and the community members that populate the space. Our climbing experiences will continue to be commensurate with the vibrancy of our fantastic climbing communities in Boston, Brooklyn, and Washington, D.C.  

Keep in mind that you will continue to find Brooklyn Boulders operating at our Queensbridge, West Loop, and Lincoln Park locations. We look forward to continuing to bring you the best-in-class climbing experience you’ve come to expect.

When is This Change Going Into Effect?

As of February 1, 2022

I split my time between BKB Queensbridge and Gowanus, now that I can’t have both I want to cancel. Will I be charged a fee? Where do I submit the request?

We understand the value has changed for you, and we will accommodate requests to cancel. In most cases there will be no additional fees. However if you recently purchased a $0 membership including your first month for free, and have not made any payments, we will require that you pay at least one full month at the revised pricing ($109/$99) stated above. After your first paid month you may cancel at no additional charge.

To transfer your membership, cancel at your current gym and then purchase a new membership at your preferred location. Please see the cancellation policies in the previous answer.

Will the Sliding Scale Membership program continue?

  • Yes, at both BKB and now Bouldering Project locations
