Planet Granite Returns to Santa Clara, CA With a Brand-New Bouldering Gym
30,000 Sq. Ft. Facility Will Serve the Area’s Growing Indoor Climbing Community and Offer Olympic Lifting Area, Yoga and Fitness Classes
Englewood, CO (PRUnderground) August 15th, 2019
El Cap, one of the largest operators of indoor climbing facilities, announced today the return of a new Planet Granite facility to Santa Clara, CA. In 1994, Planet Granite opened its very first climbing gym in Santa Clara, but later moved the facility to neighboring Sunnyvale. Now, due to the overwhelming popularity of rock climbing and bouldering in the South Bay area, El Cap is opening a new facility back in its original hometown.
Planet Granite Santa Clara is located at 801 Martin Avenue in Santa Clara, and will feature 30,000 feet of bouldering, yoga and fitness classes. The gym is slated to open Fall 2019. The new location is less than five miles from its sister facility, Planet Granite Sunnyvale, and will serve the booming member community in the area.
“We’re grateful to be part of such a strong climbing community in the South Bay. Year after year, we look to our community for guidance on how we can improve their climbing experience, over the last few years we’ve heard the need for more climbing,” said Robert Cohen, CEO of El Cap. “This Santa Clara location is the perfect opportunity to provide new experiences and share our passion for climbing with existing climbers and fitness enthusiasts looking to try the sport.”
In addition to Planet Granite’s signature world-class bouldering terrain, guests will find additional amenities including a yoga studio, functional fitness and cardio zones, F10 weights areas, fitness and climbing classes and a gear shop.
Located at 801 Martin Avenue, Santa Clara, CA 95050, the new facility offers convenient access to Central Expressway and the 101.
“Having to commute to work out in a favorite facility has always been a major pain point for climbers who’d rather spend their time on the wall rather than sitting in traffic,” explains Kyle Hernandez, Director of Planet Granite Santa Clara. “Our new location will provide rich climbing and community experiences in a convenient location.”
