I don’t know what Santa brought you, but it looks like he is bringing the Northeast some new climbing gyms in 2014! Here’s what’s in the works:
Syracuse, NY – Evolution Rock & Fitness
Portland, ME – Evolution Rock & Fitness
65 Warren Ave, Portland, ME
The original Evolution Rock & Fitness location in Concord, NH just turned 1 and it looks like they are celebrating by adding to the family! Evo will be working with Maine Rock Gym in Portland (Climberism article here and FB page here) and is trying to bring a facility to Syracuse, NY, although there have been several setbacks in securing a location (article here and my blog post here).
Boston, MA – Rock Spot
30 Old Colony Ave, Boston, MA
This gym in south Boston will be the 4th Rock Spot location joining facilities in the Hyde Park area of Boston, Lincoln, RI and Peacedale, RI. Article here.
Burlington, VT – MetroRock
Susie Wilson Rd, Essex, VT
MetroRock will be adding a Burlington, VT area gym to their 2 Boston area facilities in Everett and Newburyport to bring their total to 3 gyms in the northeast. Climberism article here and CBJ article here.
