This needs to be updated. As of 8/23/10....

~ The Spot has 4 walls by Monolithic--The topoutable Hueco Boulder and Font Boulder, the River Granite Wall, and the Yosemite Toprope Wall. In addition, The Spot has a steep training cave called The Dojo that was built by Vertical Solutions and textured by Monolithic, and a huge Walltopia wall with Asana competition padding.

~ There is no longer a yoga studio or cafe.

~ There is still plenty of space for birthday parties.

~ There is still a conference room.

~ There is a work out area above the Dojo and The Spot holds special Adult Training Group classes there in addition to normal training lessons and youth team trainings.

~ The Spot Climbing School indoor/outdoor climbing and guiding service is also located in The Spot.

~ The Spot holds a 4 competition series every year that includes the original and now famous blacklight comp Psychedelia. The series is called The Spot Bouldering Series, or SBS.
