Seattle Bouldering Project

Seattle, WA

Located in Rainier Valley, the Seattle Bouldering Project was the conversion of a warehouse into a climbing facility. Bouldering is a style of rock climbing undertaken without a rope and is typically practiced on large natural or artificial boulders in gyms or outdoor urban areas. Construction took the form of steel angles spaced regularly along each climbing surface.  Creative engineering solutions were required to accommodate the unique shape of the climbing structures.  Steel tube box frames as well as cantilevered trusses were used to provide the backbone of the prow and roof structures respectively.
