They posted a little over a week a go but I haven't heard anything. I am not a gym climber but they were supposed to be locating somewhere near my house so I was pretty excited. I hope they pull through.

I am simply rumor mongering but I heard last year that it was going to be somewhere North of Coor's field. Can anyone confirm or deny? For some reason it has been a big secret. Rick Blair

Climbing indoors sucks. Why would you care if they close?
Climb outside.
It's been in the 60's all week?

What's the problem???

The problem, Joni, is that Paradise was run by great people and had a wonderful community feel. And...Newsflash: its not 60 everyday in the winter. Get a clue.

Me, of course
I don't live in Denver, but I always heard Rock N'Jam is a great place.

Oh, other than RNJ, I see... drive to Boulder?

Yeah yeah, I know climbing indoors sucks. Unfortunately I hold the weekend warrior status and I need a rock gym at night.

I agree that Paradise had a very welcoming atmosphere, and I made some good friends there. Hopefully they'll hold on to that old charm if they ever open up again.

Ahhhh, Paradise... For those of you interested in bringing back this venerable Denver institution, you can join the newly created "Bring Back Paradise Gym" Facebook thread:

Will each and every one of us make a difference? uh, probably not. But at least we provoked Gary Grange (one of the former owners)enough to get him to join the group.

I overheard someone at R&J last night saying that Paradise was open at a new location. He said he didn't know where, but they sent email out to previous members. I didn't see any update on my searches. Has anybody heard anything? Rick Witting
