Lake Bluff? More like Wisconsin than Chicago :)

Unfortunately, you'd be far East of the big gym in the north burbs - North Wall in Crystal Lake. There may be some hidden gems; health club walls and the like, but I'm not familiar with them.

In the city (45 minutes in good traffic), you have:
Off Belay - casual bouldering with some late night sessions offered
Hidden Peak - more training-oriented bouldering
Various health club gyms of varying quality (LVAC, LSAC, FFC Old Town)
Other gym(s) to come later this year

South/southwest burb gyms (Vertical Endeavors and that other one I can never remember the name of) will likely be too far of a drive.

On the plus side, you're closer to Devil's Lake and Governor Dodge in WI, and can pop up to Kenosha for bratwurst and cheese curds whenever you want...
