Rock Climbing

Postby Dain » Fri, 02 Nov 2012 11:27 am

I am new to Singapore from the U.S. looking for climbing partners for indoor gym and/or outside sport climbing at Bukit Timah.

I am an intermediate level climber, but welcome any level for fun.

Weekdays are ideal.

Gyms and sport climbing

Postby Kevin TY » Tue, 06 Nov 2012 12:28 pm

There are a few good gyms in Singapore

Climbing Gym:
Climb Asia near Farrer Park MRT - Good for lead climbing, high-wall. Boulder gyms are good but lack lots of clearly defined routes
Onsight - lots of good bouldering routes, decent high-wall
Kinetics at Macpherson MRT - Interesting advanced boulder routes, no high-wall at all.

Natural Rock
There's only one natural rock sport climbing area - it's called Dairy Farm in Upper Bukit Timah. One of my friends lives nearby. It's granite and tends to be a little wet sometimes but otherwise is alright. small though.

I sometimes climb at Climb Asia or Onsight on thursday evenings.
Am only a novice though.

Marcan,
Haven't been checking these regularly. Anyway I saw your response to mtn. Biking, but weekends are tough due to family commitments. I am up for rock climbing if you can go mid week after work?

Weekday climbing

Postby yannee » Wed, 13 Feb 2013 2:34 pm

Greetings, I'm a lightweight looking for someone to climb with regularly specifically on weekday afternoon-evenings. I usually frequent Climbers' Lab in Jurong and Climb Asia in Little India.

Do drop me a note ( yanne at operamail.com ) if you fit the bill, thank you!

Yannee - I'll send you an email. I'm a newbie climber but interested in doing more. Not sure what experience level you're looking for, no harm if you were looking for someone more advanced!

Martin - I don't have enough posts to PM yet, but PM me if you're still looking for climbing buddies as well!

Hi,

Would like to join you. Have been to climb asia few times the past two years. Before that I climbed regularly and I prefer some weekly routine again. Yannee I will send you an email. I also can't PM.

For others who are interested to climb weekday-evenings can drop me a mail on my hotmail address simone47k

Hi everyone. We climb regularly, twice a week. We can only do top rope as of the moment. If you are interested, you may send me a PM or just email me: jdauro at yahoo.com. Thanks!
