Are there any new big climbing gyms planned for northern Virginia? It's the main determinant in where I'm looking to live.

Goal is to have a <1hr commute to DC, and <20 min drive to a really good climbing gym. The gym matters more, since I work remotely a lot, but climbing requires me to be on site Ideally, I'd like to live somewhere I can see trees and have a yard.

I just did a quick google search and it looks like there are 3 climbing gyms in Northern Virginia.

Sport rock Climbing center Alexandria (35,000 sqf)
Sport rock Climbing center Sterling (14,000 sqf)
Vertical Rock in Manassas (I couldn't find a sqf for this on their website)


I think your housing budget will be a determining factor of which of these areas would work best for you. By "have a yard" do you mean that a small townhouse yard is ok? Or do you need a single family home?

thanks!

- looking for SFH

The Alexandria gym looks good and there's one in Crystal City that would work too.

Concerned 20 min to Manassas would drag me more than an hour outside DC

Yes, it would, by a lot. Living in PWC and driving to DC is torture. Maybe survivable since you say you remote work a lot. If you are driving during rush hour you'll be lucky to hit the edge of the beltway in an hour.

Springfield/Burke areas to look at....really depends on your budget...less than $450K will be stretching it for a SFH within an hour.

-boyd888- thanks you. Good to have this on the ground assessment. Guess I need to stick closer to the crystal city or alexandria gyms, if Manassas is so far from DC.
