Vertical Endeavors Set to Expand with Fifth Midwest Location
Vertical Endeavors – Bloomington
(Opening October 1, 2016)
Vertical Endeavors is proud to announce it has secured a lease on a building located at 9601 James Avenue South in Bloomington, MN. Vertical Endeavors will utilize Nicros Climbing Wall Systems’ new 5.15™ design for the construction of all climbing surfaces within the facility.
The location consists of approximately 20,000 square feet of floor surface and plans to contain 32,000–35,000 square feet of combined climbing surface. The design plan features walls of three heights for top rope and sport lead climbing. Reaching up to 63 feet in height, this site is predicted to be the tallest Vertical Endeavors location to date. VE Bloomington will include three bouldering areas, event rooms, a fitness area and a complete Pro Shop. Upon completion, Vertical Endeavors – Bloomington will be VE’s fifth Midwest location and stand as the second largest within the brand.
Vertical Endeavors looks forward to serving the Southwest Metro and offering an additional location for their existing community of members and customers. Follow Vertical Endeavors’ social media profiles for the latest drawings and photos of the new facility. Stay tuned for future updates.
Vertical Endeavors is also planning updates to its St. Paul and Minneapolis locations.
