Brooklyn, NY – DUMBO Boulders Powered by The Cliffs is excited to announce its official opening to the public starting April 16th, 2016 with grand opening festivities on Saturday, May 7th. The grand opening will be free to the public and include a full schedule of instructional clinics, kid-friendly programming, and great activations from the local outdoor community. The grand opening celebration will culminate in a friendly bouldering challenge, suitable for all ability levels.
DUMBO Boulders is a partnership between The Cliffs Climbing + Fitness and Brooklyn Bridge Park (BBP). Park designers Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, Inc. collaborated with climbing wall specialists Walltopia to design DUMBO Boulders. The newly-constructed outdoor climbing walls are located under the Manhattan Bridge at the Main Street section of the Park, and will be North America’s largest outdoor bouldering facility.
This collaboration between The Cliffs and BBP will add another dynamic element to an already vibrant neighborhood and provide unique access to a sport not typically available in urban communities. Day passes to the facility will be $9, and DUMBO Boulders will also offer a substantial amount of free programming for afterschool programs and school field trips.
“We cannot wait to add bouldering to the many activities available at the Park,” said Regina Myer, President of Brooklyn Bridge Park. “The location is magnificent and with The Cliffs’ commitment to community programming, we hope everyone can enjoy DUMBO Boulders.”
“We’re excited to open to the public this April. DUMBO Boulders will offer a truly unique and exceptional outdoor climbing experience,” said Mike Wolfert, owner of The Cliffs. “We are thrilled to be a part of bringing this amenity to the community.”
