Pacific Pipe is a massive new climbing gym that will be built in the Bay Area of California with a whopping 55,500 sq. ft. of space.
The 50 foot walls will have all of the modern designs and features, plus there will be a big bouldering area. “We’ll be working with Walltopia again to ensure that West Oakland gets the most innovative (and most baller) climbing terrain possible,” the press release said. “Pacific Pipe will also house all the yoga and fitnesses classes the community could want.”
The building was built by Pacific Tank and Pipe Co. in the 1920s, the Pacific Pipe warehouse was once where many notable Bay Area infrastructural components were manufactured and stored, including sections of the Bay Bridge, the Jack London Square Amtrak Station and parts of the old San Francisco Museum of Modern Art building.
