The Factory Bouldering – Orange, CA

Wow! What a cool gym. This is probably as close to a perfect gym as I’ve been to. Gobs of wall space, but well used! Using tape would increase the density, but I’m not sure it’s necessary. The wall angles were great and plentiful, but not convoluted.

The setting was excellent with a great variety of technical stuff and power. The movement was well thought out. The setters have a great understanding of body positioning and I can tell they respect the ‘art’ that goes into putting up good problems.


Good layout too. The building was well utilized and they have a good workout area that doesn’t take up a lot of space that could otherwise be used for climbing.

I definitely look forward to coming back here!
