Yes, the rumor has been confirmed. There will be an indoor bouldering facility located in Birmingham owned and operated by local climbers. By local climbers I don't mean some sort of co-op. I'm talking about two people, both of which will remain nameless at this point, but eventually you'll find out.
Today I had the opportunity to visit the location. GET PSYCHED! 7000 sq.ft. The rumor has it that there will be 3 free standing boulders and one top rope area. There will also be a yoga room and training room stuffed with campus boards, hit strips, and Ben Moon's training system. The floor will be padded all around the boulders. I saw a 360 degree rendition on Mac's Sketchpad of the finished product, very very cool!
Stop by the Moss Rock Bouldering Competition this weekend to get the lowdown from the actual owners!!
Anyway, I will continue to post pictures of the progress, but here is your first.
