Climbing enthusiasts will soon have another rock to climb.

The popular rock climbing gym, Brooklyn Boulders, is set to open a massive facility in Queensbridge this summer. The facility will be the second major rock climbing venue to be located in Long Island City.

Brooklyn Boulder Queensbridge, which will be located at 23-10 41st Avenue, will be about 25,000 square feet and will feature climbing walls, a dedicated weight room, a yoga studio, saunas, multiple event spaces, co-working spaces, lounges, a cafe and an art gallery

The facility will open near Cliffs LIC, a 30,000 square foot venue that opened at 11-11 44th Dr. in 2013.

Brooklyn Boulders has three other rock climbing establishments—a Gowanus facility that opened in 2009 and one in Boston and Chicago.

“We’ve been looking at Long Island City since 2010 – we bet on this area a long time ago and are really excited to see it growing as fast as it is,” said co-founder Lance Pinn in a statement.

“We picked the name Queensbridge as a shout out to the neighborhood,” Pinn said.

The facility will offer climbing classes, fitness programs, personal training and yoga classes.

Pre-sale signups begin on May 10.
