Denver – New front range climbing gym opens in Longmont.
The Front Range’s newest climbing gym is a massive facility with walls topping out at more than 60 feet above ground, making them the tallest in the state, according to the gym’s owners.
The Longmont Climbing Collective has 26,000 square feet of floor space with 25,000 square feet of climbing walls, of which 19,500 is devoted to top-rope walls and the remainder to bouldering features.
The state-of-the-art center has a fitness area with weights, a yoga room and a cardio room with treadmills, spin bikes and Stairmasters. It soon will have a recovery room with a sauna, hot and cold plunge pools, and access to physical therapists for massage and injury evaluation. Two sides of the building have walls that can slide up like garage doors on nice days.
They are building an outdoor climbing wall on the west side of the building, which has gorgeous views of the Indian Peaks on the Continental Divide and the Longs Peak-Mount Meeker massif.
The climbing walls are so high, owners invested $50,000 in a mechanical lift to assist route setters. Routes will be reset every five to six weeks. There are more than 10,000 potential holds.
