Rock climbing - recommendations and event interest?

Postby mattks » Sun, 09 Sep 2012 7:14 pm

I'm a beginner rock climber but I'd like to get better. I have two questions for the group here;

- does anyone have any recommendations for indoor climbing areas in Singapore? There seem to be a surprisingly large amount of them and it's hard to tell which ones have the best walls and most reasonable prices.

- I will be going climbing sometime in the next couple of weeks, is anyone interested in joining?

Feel free to leave a message here or email me at mkszuch at gmail dot com.

Hi there. There have been few discussions about rock climbing in Singapore and some of the regulars here actually established groups to climb together.

Here are the threads to start with. Actually there are more but you can use the Search Function above.

http://forum.singaporeexpats.com/ftopic44102-0-asc-60.html

http://forum.singaporeexpats.com/ftopic83775.html

You can keep in touch with KD Bryant (in those threads), he is the regular and sometimes posts to encourage fellow climbers to join in.

Those are very helpful, thanks lynx! I'm abashed I didn't do a better job searching here on the forums, didn't even think about it.

I'll go use the appropriate threads.

I climb in Climbs Asia and Onsight in the weekend as it's accessible from office or home, Climbers Lab or Safra Yishun (outdoor) for weekend. Personally i like the routes in Onsight and Climbers Lab.
Price range not much different, it's cheaper if you register as a member.

Let's get together some time...I'm just a beginner climber. Already a member at Climb-Asia, just in case something like this comes along.
My thread...The Weekenders If you need my e-mail address, it's in the first post of the thread.

It sounds like there is definitely some interest, so I will try and organize something later this month. I'll start a new thread when I do and will update this one also.
