We’re moving!! (Not the gym, just the Pro-shop)

It was in 2007 (more than 10 years ago) since we moved from a shop house along Rangoon Road, into the multi-purpose hall on Level 2 of the Civil Service Club @ Tessensohn.

Then, just 10 months ago, we handed over the operations of the climbing facility to our buddies at Ground Up Climbing Pte Ltd. And it’s now time for the Pro-shop to take our leave too!

Please take note of our opening hours for our last 3 days of operation:

2 March: 12pm to 9pm
3 March10am to 8pm
4 March: 10am to 8pm

Our Moving Out Sale starts today, and runs until Sunday – which is our last day at the CSC… #bittersweetfeelings

We’ll then be using the week after that for our final packing up, before we completely vacate this cozy “hole between the climbing walls” to allow Ground Up to work their magic:)

We’ll keep you posted on our new location a little while later and until then, most of our products will still be available on our online store.

That’s it for now.

Bye… for now:)



Climb Asia Welcomes Ground Up to the Family!

We are excited to welcome Ground Up Climbing to our growing family of Climb Asia affiliates. The experienced coaching group will be taking over operations of Climb Asia Climbing Centre, located at Club CSC @ Tessensohn, with effect from 1 May 2017.

Moving forward, we will be working closely with Ground Up to improve the overall climbing experience for users, so do keep a look out for exciting and progressive changes in the months ahead!

The Climb Asia group will continue to act as counsel when it comes to gym operations. By handing over the day-to-day operations to Ground Up, we can concentrate our efforts and better serve as headquarters to our family of gyms across Asia and Australia, and ensure that they maintain a high standard of excellence across the region.

We understand that you may have some questions about what this means for you, as a member or a patron of Climb Asia Climbing Centre. Check out the FAQ that we’ve prepared.

Feel free to drop us an email at beta@climb-asia.com, or with Ground Up at enquiries@groundupsg.com, if you have further questions.

Update on ABDs – Feb 2017

Considering the feedback and responses regarding the implementation of the use of ABDs in June 2017, Climb Asia would like to assure everyone we are working closely with our partners to ensure that the transition process happens as smoothly as possible. We are aware of the concerns of the climbing community, and would like to address some of those topics here.

There are –

The Mammut SMART will be available for rental at Climb Asia in March.
Rental will be FREE until 31 May 2017.
