Event Overview

What's better than knife throwing and rock climbing, folks? How about both of them together! Yep, Brooklyn Boulders Chicago and Dabble's CEO Jay Swoboda are teaming up to bring you an action-packed mini-class of exhilarating and craggy fun. This one-of-a-kind experience will include 30 minutes of knife throwing followed by 30 minutes of instructor-led bouldering. We will begin by covering knife throwing basics and start practicing trying to stick some knives! Never thrown a knife? It's incredibly addicting...and a lot like throwing darts BUT we use 14-inch steel knives and it feels REALLY good when you get the hang of things!

This portion of the class will last 30 minutes. After you're done landing some knifes, we'll move on to the climbing portion of this Dabble & Brooklyn Boulders experience. Never rock climbed or bouldered before? Start here. Bouldering is an exciting way to get in shape, challenge yourself, and meet new people. We’ll introduce you to the sport, safety, and basic technique. In addition to 30 minutes of instruction, the class will include open access to the gym with shoe rental (harness extra) after the class. This experience is open to anyone ages 13 and up with waiver and guardian for anyone under 18.
