The Chicago Bouldering Collective

is a bouldering gym nestled in a

riverside industrial corridor near the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago, IL. Opened more than 10 years ago by a few intrepid climbers, the Chicago Bouldering Collective grew a cult following and now legendary status in the city's tight-knit rock climbing scene. Small but mighty, CBC calls this set of steep walls, carved arêtes, and gnarly cave features

ATTENTION: The Chicago Bouldering Collective is CLOSED while moving to a new location.

Our new location opening will be announced here. Follow us on Facebook for updates !
