It looks like BKBS will finally be opening its doors for the soft opening for First Ascents members and friends only. For those who would like to come check it out, hopefully we can make this a recurring event like with Metrorock.
The gym is the most conveniently climbing center located for those in the Boston - Cambridge - Somerville area, as it is located squarely between Union and Porter Square.
These are the climbing rates:
ADMISSION (Full day use, you can leave and come back!)
Day Pass - $22 (Students $18)
10 Pack - $225 (Students $169)
Shoes - $5
Harness - $5
Chalk Bag - $2
Full Gear Kit - $11
BKBS is the biggest climbing gym in the Northeast with most than 40,000 dedicated square feet of climbing, bouldering, yoga, and more. The bouldering walls reach up to 22 feet for comp, and usually 16 - 18 for regular use. The climbing wall features the enormous overhang known as the Tongue which I believe is more than 60 ft in length. It looks to be an awesome space and with the restrictions in July the walls should be wide open for climbing.
They are currently in a soft opening for members and friends of members. If you would like to climb and not a member, I am a member and will be by the front desk area and I will let you through after you pay for a day pass, etc. They also have had LivingSocial deals going on and off for access up until their grand opening July 31.
