Momentum Katy is the one of the largest climbing gym in the United States. It offers 29,000 square feet of roped climbing, bouldering, training walls and kids climbing. Industry leader Walltopia is building the gym’s walls, which were designed by Momentum’s Salt Lake City design team. Momentum Katy can accommodate hundreds of climbers, and includes a 5,520 square-foot cross training area, dedicated yoga studio, locker rooms and laptop workspaces. The second floor mezzanine, which offers “auto-belay” climbing and party pace, will double as a viewing area for competitions, including national level competitions for youth and adults.

“Momentum Katy is our most comprehensive gym to date, and has been designed to offer Houston area climbers, first-timers to elite, an unmatched climbing experience," said Jeff Pedersen, co-founder, and CEO of Momentum. “We are excited to share our sport with Katy and the greater Houston area communities and have created custom programming and terrain just for them.”

Momentum established a reputation for excellence in youth programming, producing champions like Nathaniel Coleman, 20, of Utah who is the current USA Climbing Bouldering National Champion. Youth programming is offered for children ages 3-19.

Momentum Katy is the Salt Lake City based company’s fourth climbing gym and the first outside of Utah. Ben Brown of the Houston-based brokerage firm Baker Katz, who also serves as Momentum’s master broker, helped to execute the Katy deal. Baker Katz has also worked with Momentum to broker Momentum Silver Street bouldering gym near downtown Houston in the Washington Avenue Arts District, which will open in October.
