Boston Rock Gym was excited to celebrate 25 years this August with it’s members and close friends. Originally in Somerville Massachusetts, The BRG moved to it’s currently location in 1994 after a fire in its first location.
With it’s new owner, Chris O’Connell keeping the gym moving forward for the past eight years, The BRG is constantly making changes and improvements to better suit it’s members. From adding new features and bouldering areas to renovations and new programs, the gym is making every effort to better serve its members.
To celebrate this milestone in The BRG’s history, we kicked off the weekend with a parking lot BBQ, dyno competition and raffle. The BBQ was well attended by members, friends and families all who share the same passion for climbing as The BRG team does.
In the spirit of climbing outside, Chris led a meet up at Red Rocks in Gloucester, MA for some outdoor climbing and an area clean up. A cool summer day was filled with climbing some of the staff’s favorite climbs in Gloucester with a nice break to enjoy a potluck lunch.
The future is never certain, but if one thing’s for sure The BRG is looking forward to the next 25 years of chapters in it’s book of climbing history! Stay tuned for more information about the evolution of The BRG and the exciting events we host each month!
