• Outdoor Rise: Closing Party



Celebrate with open climbing & barbecue!

Brooklyn Boulders is hosting the final event of Outdoor Rise and it’s going to be epic.

Starting at 6:00PM our outdoor community is invited for open climbing, prizes, music, and delicious barbecue. When you’ve finished climbing for the night (21+ only, please), enjoy great beer generously provided by Oskar Blues Brewery.

Compare notes from the week, meet new Risers, and win great prizes! Come early for the open climbing, stay late for the stories.

Day passes for open climbing at Brooklyn Boulders normally starts at $25, so this is an incredible value.

About Outdoor Rise

Outdoor Rise is NYC’s​ premiere​ annual adventure festival featuring one-of-a-kind outdoor experiences​ for the most unique outdoor audience on earth​. Outdoor Rise ​celebrates the spirit of adventure in the heart of the city and pays it forward, with all proceeds benefitting the inner-city youth programs of the nonprofit Discover Outdoors Foundation.

Climb for a cause.

Make your effort more rewarding by raising funds for the Discover Outdoors Foundation or your favorite charity. When you give your adventure a purpose beyond personal goals, your experience becomes more fulfilling, helping you reach the summit.


When you register with the “Fundraise for a cause” option, we will ask you by email what charity you would like to support. If you choose the Discover Outdoors Foundation, your fundraising commitment is $7,500. In exchange for your effort and commitment, the cost of the trip is covered at no cost, minus your airfare and personal expenses. You will receive a fundraising commitment letter, giving you the support and tools for reaching your goal. Please email [email protected] or call 212-579-4568 with any questions about the program.


The Discover Outdoors Foundation began in 2012 with a singular focus: increasing graduation rates in our urban schools through education experienced in the outdoors. Inspired by the positive impact our for-profit business, Discover Outdoors, was making through our youth leadership program, we soon felt compelled to serve our entire community, not just those who could afford it. Since then, the path of students has taken a different course; one that leads to a diploma and a brighter future.
