Bellingham has an amazing new bouldering gym and the grand opening was quite a scene. It’s called Vital Climbing Gym, and some innovative features make it a promising new hangout for local climbers:
- 24-hour key-in access for members
- 16-foot high walls, a cave and a top-out boulder
- An espresso bar
- A gas fireplace
- Quality music
- Excellent ventilation
- A garage door that opens onto a BBQ area
- Convenient downtown location
Bouldering is an accessible sport for non climbers. No ropes involved. All you need is a pair of climbing shoes, and you can rent them for $2 at Vital.
