Event Overview

Brooklyn Boulders Chicago and Dabble's CEO Jay Swoboda are teaming up to bring you the dynamic duo of knife throwing and bouldering. Learn the basics of knife throwing followed by an hour of instructor-led bouldering. No experience is necessary! 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! After landing some knives, we'll move on to the climbing portion of this Dabble & BKB experience. Bouldering is an exciting way to get in shape, challenge yourself, and meet new people. We’ll introduce you to the sport, how to manage risk, and basic climbing technique. In addition to 60 minutes of instruction, the class will include open access to their facility with shoe rental (harness extra) after the class.

What to Bring

Closed-toes shoes and pants for knife throwing and clothes to climb in and download the waiver to sign before class!

What's Provided

Throwing knives + climbing shoes

    This was so fun!!! Its perfect to split into 2 different classes. The knife throwing was very fun and felt great once the first knife stuck. The teacher was easy going, calm and a great teacher. He let you keep trying different things and whatever you wanted while continuously coaching.... The bouldering was definitely challenging as you get to keep progressing through different routes until you fail.... Will definitely do both of these again !

    Had a great time in both parts of the class! Bouldering is definitely not easy or for beginners, but we still had fun giving it a try!

    This was really fun. Knife throwing was a little harder to finesse than I thought! But so satisfying once I got a few to stick. The bouldering class was good, too, although I wish the class size would have been just a little bit smaller! Overall, a really great time, definitely recommend it.

    A fun experience getting your feet wet on both bouldering and knife throwing! They split the group into two, and I would definitely recommend doing knife throwing first since I did not and my arms were pretty tired :)
    Also good basic knowledge of bouldering. I've done rock climbing but now have a much bigger respect for people who boulder. If you want specific tips, you'll need to ask for tips and pointers. GREAT experience and HIGHLY recommend!

    Loved it! Had a blast doing something adventurous and different. The only caveat I have is that I should have brought earplugs. It gets loud!

    This was a great class overall. The teachers ran over the important information, let the students try things out, and gave tips when needed. It was my first Dabble experience, and it couldn't have been more positive, unless we just got more time to practice throwing, but there are time constraints.

    The blades and bouldering class was so much fun! There was a great deal of hands-on instruction and a good introduction to both knife throwing and bouldering. Thanks for putting the class together and definitely looking forward to taking the class again!

    Knife throwing was a lot of fun. It felt a little dangerous, but in a good way. I think there should be ear plugs provided for those who are more sensitive to sound, as it was pretty loud. The bouldering lesson was super helpful, although those who were brand new to climbing found it almost too challenging. I think a top roping option might work well next time for beginners.

    This was a lot of fun. I enjoyed the knife throwing more than the rock climbing. I liked that we got to try both bouldering and climbing with a harness. It was definitely a workout but you only do as much climbing as you want. All climbing gear rental was included and the instructors were friendly and helpful. I recommend this class for a unique adventure
