Brooklyn Bridge Park to Open North America’s Largest Outdoor Climbing Gym

Brooklyn Bridge Park Dumbo Climbing Cliffs

Ever notice the blue cliffs rising in Brooklyn Bridge Park? They’ll soon make up North America’s largest outdoor bouldering facility.

Opening in spring 2016, the 7,800-square-foot facility can fit up to 250 climbers at a time.

Affordable as well as expansive, a day pass will cost just $9. That’s $19 less than The Cliffs at Long Island City — who are also building this project — charges at their Queens gym.

Harnesses will not be required for climbers, as the walls are relatively short. Compacted rubber mulch will be used as a crashpad beneath The Cliffs.

The Dumbo gym will be open noon to 8 p.m. on weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends.
