BROOKLYN - Tourists, families and athletes are coming from all over to scale the streets of DUMBO at the city's first outdoor climbing facility.

You don't have to be an expert. There are private lessons available for beginners and instructors on hand to provide assistance.

"It's awesome," says Ron Rodriguez, the facility's director. "I think that's the most amazing thing that I've seen so far: seeing the kids smiling and happy."
