Portland Rock Gym is locally owned and has been part of the Portland community for 27 years. Now, September 26th, they are celebrating a giant new expansion!
What does this expansion mean for you?
+ 12,000 sq feet of additional Space
+ 10,000 sq feet of additional Climbing
+ 80 Bike Parking spaces, 20 of which are covered
+1,100 sq foot Yoga Studio
+650 sq foot Fitness Room
+2,300 sq feet dedicated Instruction and Youth oriented climbing walls
+ Lounge and Cafe space
New features that will set PRG apart from other gyms in the area include the state’s only 17’ top-out boulder, a climber lounge serving food and drinks, a separate instructional/youth room, and 100 bike stalls. The expansion will also feature a green roof. Other gyms in the area have boulders equally as tall but none that you can pull over the top lip and stand on the top – a unique feature to PRG. The climber lounge will be operated by Portland, OR based cafe, Prasad.
“The expansion of the Portland Rock Gym comes at a time when the sport of climbing and the city of Portland are experiencing incredible growth. We are excited to have the opportunity to introduce new residents of Portland to our new & improved gym, climbing, and the community as a whole,” stated Anna Rymill, PRG Marketing and Sales Manager.
The gym began working toward this project in 2012 when PRG remodeled the inside of the building to make space for additional roped climbing terrain. Working with Entre-Prises from Bend, OR, PRG added additional walls, hosting 12 new anchors, which have the ability to accommodate 25 routes of both top-rope and lead climbing.
The big event also features the Top ‘Til You Drop Bouldering Comp.
Come celebrate the grand opening of this sweet new space at PRG on Saturday, September 26th. We’ll be there giving away free swag and hanging out, so come say hi!
