The "crack"
I had been hearing through the grapevine that Stuart was going to be putting in a new gym at some point. I ran into him mountain biking at bent creek a while back and he confirmed that he had the property and was planning to break ground soon. Sounded like there would be taller walls for lead climbing, which I think would be a great thing for Asheville. With all the climbers in the area having a place to be able to get out of the cold or rain and lead would be great for those of us who dont boulder much. I also think its great that Stuart is the one doing it because he is so established in the community. It was about 6 months ago that i talked with him but havent seen or heard about much going on. Does anyone know if this is still happening or when we might see some progress? I believe that the property will be down by Carrier Park off Amboy rd. Hope someone has some great news that its currently being built;)

They have broken ground and done what looks like most of the grading for the site. it is off of Amboy acrooss from Carrier. I am not sure of the time lin, but I have heard that the schedule was to open this fall. not sure how that is possible given the current state of progres.

I think I remember Stuart saying that they were hoping for September. But obviously if they are just doing grading at this point that probably won't be the case. Im just glad to know that they are working towards it. Im excited to have a larger facility in the area. I think it will be a great addition for the climbing community.

The gym is slated to be open around October as of now. Plans include lead climbing, bouldering, and exercise area, among other things.

I don't see how they are going to open in October considering how little has been done.

but I hope I am wrong
