Welcome Home

Don’t join a gym - join a community built on adventure.


Bridges was founded in 2009 by professional slackliner + lifelong climber Damian Cooksey. Damian’s goal in creating Bridges was to share his love of climbing with as many people as possible. He set out to build a community where everyone felt welcome at every stage of their climbing journey - you don’t have to be a pro climber just to fit in.


When you climb at Bridges, you're greeted by friendly staff who not only smile, but actually remember your name. Here, you’re not just another dollar. Our members talk to each other, share beta, brush holds, and cheer each other on. We build climbers. We build connections.


Fresh Boulders 3 Days Per Week

Bridges is run by climbers, for climbers. Our routesetting team has over 20 years of combined experience, and they have free reign to bring you fresh boulders three days per week.


The last thing you want at your bouldering gym is watered-down routesetting. Our routesetters offer challenging, engaging boulders at every level, so that our climbers can learn, and grow. The shared experience of cruxing out on a new set is what brings us all together.

We don’t nickel + dime you - all our classes are included with each membership option. Whether you’re a daily yoga student or just trying to get your butt off the coach, we’ve got you covered.


Kids Climb Free

Families that play together stay together.


That’s why at Bridges, your kids under 14 climb free with any adult membership. When they’re ready to take it to the next level, we’ve got youth programming for every stage of their climbing journey.
