Re: “Jamey Sproull

For a gym that represents a nationally known climbing equipment company, it needs to reassess what it's offering people for the price. -For a place to where people go to work out, water isn't readily and freely available. The one water fountain in the actual gym area has such poor pressure that you have to practically kiss the faucet. You certainly can't fill a water bottle. It seems if you want water, bring money and prepare to pay the water dispenser. -The layout of the building is such that an area to the immediate right of the entrance appears to be a climbing wall. There's texturized wall, bolt holes, and placement for top rope. Unfortunately in the time I've been coming here, I have yet to see it be used as a climbing area. It seems that they've placed weightlifting and work out equipment haphazardly through out this area. There isn't any climbing in this section, and the pieces of sub par equipment don't provide a more unique climbing gym experience .Rather, it seems to reflect a lack of focus when it comes to use of space and what people (climbers, I assume) are paying for. When their webpage proclaims 6500 sq ft of climbing, keep this space in mind.-And the routes aren't well maintained. The floor is littered with scraps of tape from routes that aren't even two weeks old. I'm not sure if the counter person is allowed to leave the desk, but I bet if he spent 15 minutes checking routes and replacing tape instead of dabbling on his ipad, it would make for a better experience.Having visited other northwest climbing walls (PRG and Circuit in Portland, Crux in Eugene, Stone Garden in Seattle, The Edge in Vancouver BC) I cant see how they can the same price or more expensive then these other gyms. It's worth it to look at these other gyms websites and ask yourself if Asana could do better for the amount of money they're asking for.TL;DR- Asanas space isn't used well, the routes aren't well maintained, and getting a drink of water can be a pain in the butt. They should know better.

Re: “Two Wheeled Playground

Quick note of clarification - Some of the trails at the bike park were designed and built for the specific purpose of downhill biking. These are the trails that have jumps on them. The rest of the trail system consists of trails intended for all user groups including places for hikers, dogs, and horses. Some of the comments in the article above only apply to the "jump" lines, not to trails in general.
