In case you missed the announcement amidst all the weekend fun, we're happy to share our hopes to bring a world class indoor climbing gym to Pasadena, California in 2015.
LA Boulders officially opened to the public in January, 2013. "We always knew this wouldn't be our only Southern California location," said Touchstone General manager Markham Connolly. "Having several gyms in LA, just like we have in the Bay Area, allows people to use more than one gym with one membership. Members love that they can rope climb in Berkeley, take yoga in Oakland, and boulder in San Francisco. It's exciting to be thinking about brining that to LA."
"I'm psyched," said Remi Moehring, who moved to Los Angeles from San Francisco to manage LA Boulders. "Seeing people walk into the LA.B and be blow away by the walls and the community is just the beginning. Just wait till the LA climbing community has a Touchstone rope gym too!"
While the project is still in the preliminary stages, the gym will include rope climbing, bouldering, and more. "The reception we've received from the LA climbing community has been amazing," said Touchstone Climbing owner Mark Melvin. "We're very excited to take what's worked from our existing locations and create something truly spectacular in Pasadena."
Stay tuned for more information!
