El Cap Announces Plans to Build a Second Dallas/Fort Worth Climbing Gym

Gym will Include 37,000 Square-Feet of Rock Climbing, An Expansive Outdoor Fitness Area, and Dedicated Yoga Studio

Denver, CO – January 16, 2020

El Cap, one of the largest operators of indoor climbing facilities in the U.S., announced today that it will begin construction on another state-of-the art climbing, yoga and fitness gym in Dallas. The new facility, located at 8021 Walnut Hill Lane in Dallas, focuses on the style of climbing known as bouldering and is the second Planet Granite announced in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area.

The 37,000 square-foot space will feature world-class bouldering under natural light, a yoga studio, a full line-up of introductory and advanced climbing classes, and a unique outdoor fitness area built around a tree that’s been part of the shopping center’s infrastructure since the ‘70s.

“Our goal with both Dallas locations is to create a place for local climbing enthusiasts to come together and share their passion for adventure through climbing and fitness in a community environment,” said Robert Cohen, El Cap CEO.

The rock climbing gym will reside in “The Hill,” a recently renovated, environmentally-friendly shopping center.

“It brings us great pleasure to be able to showcase a building such as this to our membership base,” explains Cohen. “This space strongly appealed to our company values. Not only are our team members strong environmental advocates, but through our giving program, we strive to enhance the outdoor areas that make climbing so special.”

Planet Granite The Hill will be conveniently located on Walnut Hill Lane and Central Expressway and offers ample parking. It’s also steps from the “Walnut Hill” stop on the Red Line (Dart System) and bus routes serving the same stop. Planet Granite Design District is located in the heart of the iconic Design District with easy access to I-35, Uptown, Oak Lawn, Downtown and Trinity Groves.

Both gyms are slated to open in the second half of 2020.
