The Bouldering Authority is a family of climbing gyms that includes First Avenue Rocks, Birmingham Boulders, and Tennessee Bouldering Authority in Chattanooga. Our focus is building a strong community around our sport, and our facilities have something for everyone -- from the first time climber to the seasoned veteran. If you're looking for a fun way to stay active, challenge yourself and meet new people, then look no further than the Bouldering Authority.
Birmingham Boulders is the newest member of the Bouldering Authority family. B2 is big! Our 14,000 square foot facility is the largest bouldering gym east of the Mississippi. Our new space has allowed us to expand all of our programs: more bouldering terrain, an expanded kids & family area, lounge space, and a lot more training.
Open to all patrons during regular business hours, the Forge Training Facility is host to the best climbing training available. Starting April 10th, upgrade your membership to include 24/7 access to the Forge and never miss a workout again.
Located in the heart of Birmingham on the Rotary Trail, First Avenue Rocks opened it's doors in 2009. With over 200 different climbs that change regularly, you can always find something to challenge your skills at this classic facility.
Featuring a full compliment of training equipment including free weights, hang boards, MOON Board, and campus rungs, First Ave has the tools you need to learn the sport, get strong, and have fun.
ATTENTION: ALL CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST HAVE A WAIVER COMPLETED BY A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN BEFORE THEY CAN CLIMB. PLEASE NOTE: LEGAL GUARDIANS MUST PRESENT PROOF OF GUARDIANSHIP BEFORE THEY CAN SIGN A CHILD'S WAIVER.
