Think of this as the Hollywood version of LAB. Slightly different clientele, same high-quality walls and flooring, and over 10,000 square feet of routes. Here you'll be greeted by two hundred problems scattered across 16 vertical feet, though there are currently fewer offerings outside of climbing than at Touchstone's other locations (no fitness classes yet, though they're coming by the end of 2016). There is, however, a sauna, a well-earned treat that LAB doesn't offer.

Fantastic gym with a great vibe; if you're a fitness freak who loves climbing, you'll fit in here just as much as the casual gym-goer who maybe doesn't have much upper body strength (me).  Opened in summer of 2016, it's clean, up to date, and chill af.  You'll make friends and meet people, from the staff to people in your yoga classes. That's right, it's not only climbing--it's classes too.  Whether you've signed up for a membership (highly worth it if you like climbing, as the gym not only has lots of problems to solve and walls to scale, but also weights, cardio machines, a sauna, locker rooms/amenities, and tons of classes) or just want to come for the day, it's a great place to relax for a few hours while getting a good workout.  Yoga classes go more towards the fitness/stretch/chill aspects of the practice, so they're more accessible than your average Wanderlust class.  Bonus, if you're a member, they have parties and competitions, and there's pizza and beer.

Parking is tough, as they have a small lot (and people sometimes park diagonally where they shouldn't, making it very hard to get out--park as far towards the back as possible), but street parking is around.
