An empty lot of land near Yale & 31st will soon house an almost 20,000 square foot rock climbing gym.

Local Tulsan and filmmaker Jason Burks will soon expand from the modest gym he now owns to a newly built facility.

The $3 million project, which will be named Climb Tulsa, will be large enough to house tournaments through USA Climbing.

The gym will also have a large kids area dedicated to children under 15. The focus will be to get them off their phones and get them interested in being active.

The announcement of the new project comes as climbing was announced as a new Olympic sport in 2020.

On Sunday, News On 6 anchor Meagan Farley will have more on the gym and what it could mean for future Olympians right here in Tulsa.
