I keep forgetting to mention that Kitsap Vertical World in Bremerton is indeed still open. Despite the owners several months ago telling the local paper that if they didn’t have a buyer they were closing the gym (not the best idea, either for the sale of the business or sales of memberships… for months, the staff had to answer call after call of “Hi! Are you still open? I read in the paper that the gym was closing.”), the gym has — due in part to the efforts and dedication of the staff — remained open and programming is scheduled through the summer. There are a bunch of friendly new faces among the membership, and despite the fact that summer is usually dead, the place has been hopping a lot of nights I’ve been there.
So, if you’re one of the many folks who haven’t tried indoor rock climbing, but who have always wanted to, and then heard that the local gym was closing or closed…
it’s not. Come ‘on in. We’re a friendly bunch, and we’d love to get you hooked.
