Okay so now that the secret Brooklyn climbing gym has been outed and allegedly closed down, it's time to move on to the less mysterious open-to-the-public Brooklyn Boulders. The Big Box version of climbing, if you will. Thrillist points to the DeGraw Street space (which is an old Daily News garage), saying it's "an immense 30 ft ceiling'd, 18k sqft climbatorium rigged up with Brooklyn Bridge-like archways separating faux cliff faces and cinderblocks tagged by local graffers (Peek, Diva, Ewok, Kstar, etc)." The business is one of three that some frat boys are bringing to the borough, and will open in two weeks. A day on the faux rocks will cost you $20 with your own gear, or $30 with provided gear and basic instruction. In it for the long haul? There's a lifetime membership for $5,000. Belay on?
