SLC Quarry?

Postby dirt girl » Tue Jul 11, 2006 10:00 am

Did the Quarry ever open a climbing gym in Salt Lake? Is it supposed to anytime soon? Where? Just curious.

It is in the process of being built now.

It will be located in the same building as REI in Sandy, near South Towne Mall. They are, as we speak, "raising the roof" . . . . literally.

i don't know when it is scheduled for completion. i'm sure later this fall.
Up, way up.

I drive past that every day on my way to work. Looks like they're building to the side of REI, as well as on top. Looks like it should be pretty big. I really hope they put a free-standing boulder in there that you can top out... that would be awesome!

Look for a new gym in the Davis Co. area to open in the near future as well. A partner of mine has just invested in all the holds, hardware and supplies, registers, shoes, harnesses, building, permits etc. Plans are to make this more group destination for families, youth groups, climbing instruction classes etc. as well as to cater to the individual climber.

as your buddy begins to play out the gym, here is a hint:

--free standing boulder that can be topped out!--


they first gym to do that in utah will be the most popular gym in the area, promise (as alreadyalluded to in this thread)

seriously, i was just up in medford, oregon, last week and i climbed at a gym there that had a free standing boulder. let's just say that there is more to producing a great bouldering wall than just building a "free standing boulder". their gym and the boulder was nice, but not as good as i remember the front to be. TALL bulging problems with sufficient padding beneath get me psyched.

New gym

Postby Dave Budge » Sat Jul 15, 2006 7:26 am

The new Sandy gym is called Momentum, another Jeff Pedersen project (the owner/operator of the Quarry in Provo). Set to open in October, it will be huge with long lead routes, including cracks of all sizes, and lots of bouldering. There are rumors of on-site espresso for the junkies (not in Provo anymore).

Body Shop on Gunn Ave. I miss the Villa theater too. And the old IME location.

What I kinda miss about the Body Shop, was that parallel sided two by six vertical handcrack to do laps on.

How tall?

The new Front has an 18 foot tall crack machine from 8 inches to tip-scars.
