Climbing Gyms Rock Climb Singapore

Beginners Guide to 25 Rock Gyms in Singapore

ROCK GYMS IN SINGAPORE – An all-time favourite outdoor hippie sport that has started picking up greater mass interest in Singapore in recent years.

Being a rock climber, here’s a list of common misconceptions people have when they consider taking up the sport:

  1. You’ll need to have a lot of arm strength, so the more muscles the better
  2. You need to be very strong hence boys always have a huge advantage
  3. You will require a lot of money to pursue this hobby ( just like diving)

In actual reality, the above is all wrong.

Once you embark onto this sport, you will start to realise how different it is from what you perceive, and how this sport accommodates people of different strength, sizes, young and old, male and female; all have the ability to excel in this sport.
Just check out the participants in the international climbing competitions and you all see a variations of contestants of varying heights and builds!

Starting out rock climbing as a hobby isn’t hard.

For 1st timers who want to just give it a try, you just need to head to your nearby rock gym, rent climbing gear like climbing shoes and harness for a day and be accompanied by a certified belayer ( for the majority of the gyms). An average trip with equipment rental all included in can costs you between SGD$25 – 40 for the whole day, which isn’t much compared to some other recreational/ adventure activities in Singapore.

In the event you did give rock climbing a shot, love it and want to take it more seriously, you can go the next tier to take a level 1 certification course at about SGD$65 – $80 which is available for booking at respective rock gyms in Singapore OR via qualified private climb instructors, depending on your preference. Then comes the buying of…

your first pair of shoes
carabiner and ATC belay device…
and before you know it, you are hooked to the sport with a full complete set of climbing gear….

So now that you roughly have an idea about what is rock climbing and bouldering, let’s share with you this list of climbing gyms all over Singapore

25 Rock Gyms in Singapore for your ‘Klimb’ consideration:

(In no ranking order)

1. Ground Up or previously Climb Asia

Lead climbing at Ground Up

This rock gym in Singapore has its heritage as the pioneer climbing gym, with its cosy atmosphere in the heart of Tessensohn Civil Service Club. Regarded as one of the more affordable rock gyms around, they also have an amazing climbing shop to browse as and when you feel like feasting your eyes on some new gear. Always look out for their sale periods!

2. Climb Central with 3 Outlets

Kallang Wave Mall

Siutated in Kallang Wave Wall, this top rope climbing gym in Singapore is one of the few with air conditioning, hence explains one of its greatest draw factors.

Located smack at Kallang Wave Mall Sports Hub which is next to the Stadium MRT station, this gym is perfect for those who want to experience climbing for the 1st time with your friends but do not have your level 1 belay certification. The rock gym’s setup makes it friendly to top rope belay in safety with your kids or 1st timer/ beginner friends. But for safety precautions, you would need to sit through a quick 15 minutes safety briefing.

Novena Climb Central Outlet

Smaller than the Kallang wave mall outlet, but its cosy and less crowded. If you live in the north area, this would be the perfect rock climbing gym for you.

Funan Mall

If you have note checked out Funan mall in Singapore, you are missing out on this swanky mall with its rooftop urban farming Edible Garden and endless hispter food stands, cafes and restaurants. Of coz, the climbing gym is located in the middle of the mall with great spectactors around, though in my opinion, the full space seems a bit more tight then their Kallang Wave mall outlet.

3. Safra Yishun Adventure Sports Centre

Now known as Camelot, this outdoor rock wall still reign as Singapore’s highest outdoor rock wall. For those who like a bit of the sun and the full experience of outdoor climbing, this location will be my recommendation. However, the weather proves volatile in this part of Singapore so do come earlier in the day to get more hours into your climb, or get caught in a downpour.

4. The Cliff

The Cliff at Snow City Singapore| rock gyms in singaporeThe Cliff at Snow City Singapore| rock gyms in singapore

Calling all Westies or climbers looking for climbing gyms in the West nearer to your office, The Cliff is located next to Science Centre/ Snow City which is walkable from Jurong East MRT station. Popular place with many to take their level 1 certification as it is less packed and a good training ground in an outdoor setting.

5. Climbers Laboratory

Always wanted to try a 180 degrees arch route? Climbers lab is the only rock gym that can allow you to experience that. They also have a climbing shop that sells quite a number of climbing equipment options. Nearest MRT is the North East Line (Purple line) called Woodleigh MRT.

The Tampines Hub outlet has 35 lanes of top-rope and lead climbing walls and a 13m wide and 4.5m high boulder wall, the same supplier for world cup IFSC climbing and climbing gear by Black Diamond and Boreal. Much effort has gone into creating a quality climbing experience for serious climbers and beginners alike within a neighbourhood community. 

An interesting thing is that the gym founders both came from a sport climbing and sports science/ youth development background. Hence the climbing facility is designed to provide exploratory sessions, fun and social experience for beginners to structured programmes designed to develop climbing techniques for fitness enthusiasts and novice climbers.

It has 5 unique climbing walls and the special warm up wall is the ‘Let Em Play’ wall with cute holds in alphabets all the way to the top that makes it super fun for kids!

If you asked me, I found the transparent competition wall the coolest, where the kids can face each other to climb and race! If they are not into a competition and are a bit on the fearful side, then the friendly giraffe wall might be what they need.
Last but not least, this gym’s unique feature is that it has an augmented reality rock climbing wall. It can project graphics and has body-tracking sensors to make the climbing experience feel like a game!

Parents who feel left out from all the fun? No worries, you can join in the obstacle course aka high element course and have fun with your kids in these 15 obstacles.

Small piece of bad news, the premise has currently closed down.

13. Upwall Climbing

Remember the old ferris wheel over in Downtown East?
Well, that is long gone and the pretty space by the glassfront of the mall is now taken over by the new climbing gym called UpWall.

16 top rope lanes with 10 auto belay routes and 8 lead climbing lanes for the more advance level climbers. Bouldering can be done shared with the lead climbing lanes, with a thick crash pad set up below it.
Opened during the COVID19 pandemic in 2020, this air condition carpeted gym is really cosy and comfortable without the crazy crowds like some of the other more popular climbing and bouldering gyms located more centrally, where you need to camp on their online pages to secure a slot.

We managed to visit this climbing gym in the far east with a few last minute walk in by our extended family who decided to join. The space is quite friendly for younger kids and toddlers too. There are nice soft white lining seats against the wall that the kids can chill there while their parents climb.
Some downsides though, the gym caters a bit more to top ropers as compared to boulderes, so there isnt a designated area for you to boulder and do exciting overhangs. Also, prepare for a bit of a nosy crowd of families and kids watching you if you climb on the part that is against the railings of the mall.

14. Boulder World

Paya lebar area just got more hip, coz a new gym called Boulder World has just opened right at Singpost Centre. Great location given that is located right at a big mrt station interchange crossing the circle line and east west line.

Address: 10, #01-205 Eunos Rd 8, SingPost Centre, Singapore 408600

15. Boulder Movement ( 3 Outlets)

CBD folks listen up, this bouldering gym will be just perfect to visit before work, lunch time or after work. Clean, fresh with air purifiers and towels even, it will be one of the fanciest gyms you will see in Singapore. So instead of working long shifts and work hours, hit the gym for a new workout and indoor fitness hobby.

Latest update is this 2020, boulder movement has opened their 2nd outlet over at Tai Seng MRT station. Super fresh outlet with a lovely living room vibe interior and brand new bouldering crash mats, this will be a great date spot for them north easterners.

    Nice comprehensive roundup! Would Kinetics also qualify although it is more of a bouldering gym? My memory may fail me, but i do believe the pioneer/first climbing gym in Singapore may have been Climb Adventure at Keppel Tower ~ 2005. They subsequently moved to West Coast but sadly no longer in operation.

      But remember, to be able to belay someone, you need to be certified with a level 1 cert as well. Let me know if you need more information!

    Lydia, can we climb solo? Or do I always need a buddy (as a belayer)? Coz I’d probably want to go alone most of the time (or rather, don’t really have climbing buddy). Thanks! 🙂

      November 24, 2016 at 2:36 pm

      Hi Sean! climbing usually requires a belayer. But take heart, there are now other options that one can go on their own – auto belay systems in gyms ( Climb central or climb asia has). Alternatively, you can pick up bouldering which one can go on your own.
      Hope it helps!

    • Reply
      November 30, 2016 at 9:51 am

      Hey Sean,

      There are 3 main types of climbing disciplines when it comes to a climbing gym:
      1. Top rope – as the name suggests, there’s a rope attached to the top. This is the best way to start the sport, however you do require a belayer (most of the time), I say most of the time as there are auto-belay devices at Climb Centra and Climb Asia, that let you climb without a belayer, therefore, go alone. There are a lot of people that climb ad climbing is a great way to meet people too, so even if you wanna climb “solo” you will always make new friends to climb with eventually.
      2. Bouldering – This type of climbing can be done solo, as there is no belayer required, its done on a lower wall with soft mats below them, the ‘routes’ are shorter and are generally called ‘problems’ as compared to a top rope route they are a bit more complex and powerful.
      3. Lead climbing – The advanced form of climbing, requires a belayer, one would progress to this once they have climbed for a longer period of time.

      Hope this info helped. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    This thread is very useful. I am very keen to commit to the sports but similar to Sean, I am likely going solo. So would you advise that I do my level 1 with Climb Central/Climb Asia which has the auto belay system, before I manage to make new friends in the sport?

    Or are you aware if there are any pairing services to pair up solo climbers so they can support each other for the sport?

    Hi Lydia,
    Just chanced upon your blog… very nice list of climbing places. I happen to have visited Boulder+ at Aperia Mall which is a bouldering gym…. quite bright and spacious because there’s direct sun light into the fully air conditioned space. Seems to be open for a few months already.

          Hi Chris,
          Yes indeed you are right, thats coz I am hardly around as I am out of Singapore most of the time. But I am back for 3 weeks and am climbing at the gyms currently:D Hope to see you around too!

    Thank you for the comprehensive list Lydia – great summary! Saw a couple of comments on climbing solo as their other friends are not interested. I faced the same pain point as well but got introduced to a social platform, where people actually connect over healthy activities like climbing. I’ve since met a couple of workout buddies and now I have a steady crew to boulder with! Would highly recommend if any of you prefer to go with someone to try climbing, especially if you are new to the sport, which can be alittle intimidating.

    What a great article. I’m interested in taking up a course on rock climbing. I have done a few climbs with friends but am at a beginners level. If you could recommend a school or instructor that would be great

      Heys Carmen, totally know what you mean.
      I believe you are referring to some of the gyms that are in the middle of a shopping mall. If you feel a bit uncomfortable with that concept for now, there are plenty of gyms that has a lot more privacy, where you climb in an enclosed space and do not need to worry much. I hope you give it a try some day and tell me how’s your experience!

    Hi Lydia,
    I’m looking for a gym that would be suitable for my 13-year old daughter and me – we are all novices. We live in the East. Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

      Hi Evelyn, there are plenty of incredible gyms to check out, and a lot of them are in the East. It depends if you want to experience it on your own without any instructor, or if you want to take up a course. Let me know which you are keen on and I can recommend you from there!:D

    Hello Lydia, I live near to Dairy Farm and would like to start rock/wall climbing with my daughter who is 8yo. Would you be able to recommend an instructor or you think we should go to Science center to wall climb as a start? You can email me back please. Thank you for the wonderful info on this blog!

      Rock climbing is honestly such a fun bonding activity especially with your kids. I hope you have already started the process of contacting the instructor I recommended 🙂

    Hi Lydia, I`m a beginner and i tried the kids climbing in the playground and i loved it. I would love to pursue this sport so can you recommend me where should i take this level 1 cert as im living in the west area you see. if its in the snow city there, sure but is it the most recommended? and which gym should I sign up for if im interested in various kinds of climbing? however im a total noob though. As now there is phase 2 fall back again, is there anything i must take note of? I really appreciate your blog and please do guide me. Thanks!
