In 2009 we began in Brooklyn, a city filled with passion, creativity, and the drive to make things happen. We opened doors. You created a community.
Since then, the BKB community has inspired us to open new doors in New York, Boston, and Chicago. Each outward manifestation of our community has helped us grow inward to develop and provide innovative climbing technologies, industry-leading recovery amenities, virtual programming, WILD™ excursions, and the Brooklyn Boulders Foundation.
We bring Brooklyn everywhere we go. We hope to spread the #bkblove and a sense of community to other urban areas through climbing, fitness, art, and events. At Brooklyn Boulders (BKB) you’ll find unconventional experiences that not only push you physically, but engage your imagination and ignite your passion.
We started the BKB Foundation (BKBF) and City Rocks, which uses climbing to build mentoring relationships that empower students from under-resourced communities to develop self-confidence, resiliency, and the ability to succeed.
Our competitive youth climbing team, BKBeasts, launches.
We took to the outdoors and established BKB Wild. We were honored with the American Institute of Architects People’s Choice Award and collaborated to launch Augmented Reality Climbing. We expanded our Out to Climb pride celebration to all four facilities in June and raised thousands of dollars for LGBTQ non-profits including Stonewall Inn Gives Back Initiative (SIGBI), Boston Alliance of Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer Youth (BAGLY), and Howard Brown Health.
Diversity, Inclusion + Belonging
We are committed to honoring the diversity of our community by creating actively anti-racist, inclusive and equitable environments for our team and everyone who considers themselves a part of the BKB community. Our community deserves positive, long-lasting change. We are ready to do the work and invite you to hold us accountable.
