Edmonton Gets Big Boulder Gym in 2018

Alberta will get two big and new climbing gyms in 2018, one that we knew about in Calgary and now one in Edmonton.

The new bouldering-only gym in Edmonton will be called Blocs and will be open for summer. This follows the news from earlier this year that the Calgary Climbing Centre is opening an Olympic-worthy gym on the western edge of Calgary.

Get psyched Edmonton! We can't wait to show you what's coming. Stay tuned. #climbingblocs #yegclimbing

The news comes from the founders of Blocs: Selena Wong, Kristine Mckay, Terry Paholek and Peter Toth.

As it states on their Facebook page: “We are very excited to announce the opening of Alberta’s largest indoor bouldering gym.

“We’ve been working hard to create a comprehensive, welcoming facility for all climbers to enjoy.” Blocs will be opening summer 2018 on the south side of Edmonton.

Earlier this year, Calgary got its biggest bouldering gym called Bolder. For more on the new Calgary climbing gym visit here.
