The recent cold weather has given me the itch to finally join a local gym. I'm located in Broomfield (120/Federal). The only gym I've climbed at in town is Earth Treks and while it was very nice, it's also pretty far from me. Movement seems to be pretty popular, and a friend of mine suggested BRC. I assume that if you're a member at Movement you can climb at Denver and Boulder? I haven't looked into that. Ideally I'd like something close, but I'm willing to drive further if it's really worth it. I'm also a pretty moderate climber. I'm good leading up to 5.8/9 and TR 10s. I dig bouldering but I'd really like to concentrate on sport for the winter. I don't have a regular partner other than my GF and I don't think she's really interested in getting a gym membership at this point (although maybe later this winter), so having access to a lot of partners would be good. I came from a town with only 1 gym so with so much selection I don't really know where to start...

Rock'n'Jam'n is close to you. Movement Denver has been brutally crowded every time I've been there. Earth Treks is worth the drive.

How is Rock n Jam? It doesn't seem like it's on the same level as earth treks/movement but it's almost the same price.

Rock'n & Jam'n is great! check them out you won't be disappointed. Another one that is not a climbing specific gym but more of a training gym is Mountain Strong located at 52nd and Broadway. They have an awesome bouldering wall and offer KRAFT classes!!! mountainstrongdenver.com/

Pretty much sums it up.

Check out the DBC, although it may be a bit of a drive for you. Kind of a bro scene some days, but much quieter than Movement (and cheaper). Bouldering will make you a better sport climber anyway.

I live right around there myself and I end up making the drive to Earth Treks every time. I tried out all the local gyms and found that one to be the best.

If you go there after 730-8pm, it's a little less crowded too.

I actually work at rock'n jam'n, where we lack in the massive size that earth treks and movement have. we make up in quality of routes. The crowd here is usually pretty tame compared to the bigger gyms in town. Feel free to stop on in we are located off Arapahoe and jordan.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
