Hey Montbello kids, your park just got a whole lot cooler.

Montbello Open Space Park unveiled a new climbing boulder Tuesday, the first of a handful that will be popping up across the country through a $1 million donation from San Francisco-based The North Face to The Trust for Public Land, according to a statement from The North Face.

The goal is to have about three boulders going up in the next one to two years. The boulders are an attempt to make climbing more accessible and inclusive, according to the statement. For example, the 4.5-acre Montbello Open Space Park serves more than 40,000 families who are low- to moderate-income.

The boulder has 13 routes that are designed for climbers with beginner to intermediate skills.

The unveiling comes the same week as the Outdoor Retailer, which brought 85,000 outdoor industry professionals who represent 1,400 global brands.
