Ultimate List of 11 Rock Climbing Gyms in Malaysia

Singapore has kicked off 2018 with up to 15 rock climbing and bouldering gyms island-wide. That is a lot of climbing gyms for a small country. What about our neighbouring country next door – Malaysia?

Seems like they are also starting to catch up, with a growing number of loads of top rope, lead and bouldering gyms in operation and coming up. So for the Malaysians who are unhappy about the lack of options in their country, or the rock climbing enthusiasts visiting Malaysia/ moving to Malaysia, here’s

The Ultimate list of 11 Rock Gyms in Malaysia:

1. Rock World, Johor Bahru

I visited Rock World about 2 years ago near February period with some friends. It is located conveniently just across the border of Singapore – Johor Bahru. Not too much time needed to travel to given its close proximity to Singapore customs, but its better to drive there then try to get there on your own with public transport.
A small but cosy gym, it is a decent size to spend 2 hours there exploring the routes and options.

My all time favourite Kuala Lumpur Rock Climbing Gym – Camp 5.

This huge kuala lumpur rock climbing gym is 2,500 metres square feet big, has a range of options from top rope walls at 8 – 13 metres height, 8 metres trad rock-like wall, 16 to 20 metres lead climbing walls . For boulderers, there are 400 metres square of bouldering available as well.

    It looks like indoor rock climbing is really taking off in Malaysia. It is very popular here in Calgary likely because we have so much outdoor climbing nearby in the Rocky Mountains.
