Scrapyard: A Climbing Collective
If you’re looking for something fun to do in Holland with your pals or fam, you’ve got to give indoor rock climbing at Scrapyard a go. We know that we are together than on our own and have seen the power rock climbing has to bring out the best in each of us.
We envision a space where all kinds of groups can be transformed through climbing together: friends and strangers, parents and children, classmates and coworkers. Our mission is to cultivate a strong community connected by the shared climbing experience. A space where you can stay active, challenge yourself, engage, and grow with others beyond the rock.
What We Value
We are a third-space that isn't work or home. Scrapyard is a place for people to connect in a supportive and non-judgmental way. When you are at Scrapyard, you belong. Find your people here.
Our team will teach you what you need to know, while always providing support along the way. We believe growth occurs through challenge, and we’re not afraid to push you while we equip and encourage you.
We are brought together by the challenges and rewards of climbing together. As we push past preconceived limits and stretch ourselves, we find opportunities for connection.
We’re not in this to make stacks of cash. So we’re keeping Scrapyard accessible and affordable for everyone. We provide community programs, financial support, and great pricing. Climbing is for everyone.
“Climbing has the power to change the way you experience and view the world”
After his first time climbing, Josh Bochniak was hooked. This one experience changed his life and from that day on he wanted to share the power rock climbing, indoor and outdoor, had to change the way we experience the world.
In 2013 Josh and his wife moved to Holland, Michigan to be closer to family. He was a full time stay at home dad for a while and later got a job working for a small bouldering gym, little did he know he would someday take over the gym with new life and passion for community building.
Josh spent years working and learning and dreaming of someday opening his own gym. In 2018, when the owner of the gym he had been working at was ready to move on, Josh’s dream became a reality. Countless hours, blood, sweat, and tears later, Scrapyard Climbing Collective is the kind of gym he had always envisioned.
