Bridges Rock Gym

5635 San Diego Street
El Cerrito, CA 94530


Bridges Rock Gym is a place for climbers, slackliners, and fitness enthusiasts to convene in a fun and social environment. Our goal is to offer the best indoor bouldering experience possible. What is bouldering? Bouldering consists of relatively short climbs made up of interesting and graceful yet powerful and technical movements. Bouldering routes are known as "problems" because they offer not only a physical challenge, but a mental challenge as well. Working to "solve" bouldering problems with a group of friends is incredibly exciting, creative, and fun. Bouldering is great for beginner and expert climbers alike. It is a simple and fun way to get a full-body workout and stay healthy. No special gear or technical expertise is needed - just shoes and chalk, and you're ready to climb!

The climbing terrain at Bridges ranges from gently sloped bouldering walls for beginners to 18-foot tall highball top-out boulders to train you properly for the real thing outdoors. For serious strength training, we house one of the deepest overhanging indoor climbing caves ever built. Twelve inches of seamless padding across the entire bouldering area provides the softest landing surface around. Our roped climbing wall is perfect for beginner climbers, kid's parties and other group events.

Bridges is the first and only gym in the world with a dedicated slacklining area. This emerging sport, similar to tight-rope walking, is an excellent way to cross-train for any activity requiring a good sense of body awareness, and it's a great full-body workout. In slacklining, the webbing stretches, which allows advanced slackliners to perform an array of tricks from simple turns to flips on the line. Slacklining strengthens the core, as well as the tiny stabilizer muscles in your knees and ankles. Improve your footwork, agility, and balance in snowboarding, skiing, surfing, skateboarding, trail running, cycling - anything that requires balance. Everyone can benefit from a little time on the line!
