“Dear PoPville,

Extreme city and environmental waste going on at Harry Thomas rec center. The Harry Thomas pool is overflowing and DPR is closed. The water is running at full strength. Do you know anyone who may be able to turn it off this holiday weekend?”

Thanks to Peter for passing on: “Brooklyn Boulders just sold their brand new Eckington bouldering gym to Bouldering Project. they also sold their Boston and Brooklyn gyms.”

The press release says:

“As of today, the Bouldering Project has acquired our three Brooklyn Boulders locations in Brooklyn, D.C., and Boston. And while that means you may see some new signage in your facility, you’ll continue to experience the best-in-class climbing experience you’ve come to expect from us. You’ll also continue to see many of the friendly faces from the Brooklyn Boulders team.

Much like BKB, the Bouldering Project strives to create spaces where all individuals can feel a sense of belonging in our sport and culture. Read More
