Tacoma is set to get a second indoor venue for rock climbers by the middle of October.
Vertical World, the state’s largest rock gym chain, plans to open a bouldering gym at 102 South 24th Street in the building previously occupied by Action Business Furniture.
The bouldering facility will not have roped-climbing and will be part of the company’s manufacturing facility, said Vertical World owner Rich Johnston.
"This kind of came through the back door," said Johnston. "We were just looking at putting our wall manufacturing in Tacoma."
