the original
bouldering gym.

Welcome to The Spot Bouldering Gym, Boulder's coolest climbing gym! Enjoy amazing freestanding boulders modeled after some of the most famous boulders in the world, including Fontainebleau, Hueco Tanks and Yosemite. Our Dojo is one of the longest, steepest training caves around and our sweeping Beach comp wall is awesome. We have cool air conditioning in the summer and great warmth in the winter.

We offer the best bouldering in a 10,000 ft² facility, plus a slackline, training equipment, youth teams, and a ton of fun events every year including the unique blacklight climbing competition Psychedelia. And after climbing you can enjoy a cold one from our selection of Avery beers. Our friendly staff will make sure that you have an incredible bouldering experience at The Spot.

Since we opened in 2002, The Spot Bouldering Gym has cultivated
a warm, encouraging community of climbers.

But don't take our word for it. Stop by for a session and see for yourself.



The Spot is located in central Boulder near bike paths and bus routes.

Get yourself to Walnut Street, then cut north at 32nd, 33rd or between.
