Opened in 2012, STONE has been the pioneer in the rise of privately founded climbing gyms in Taiwan.  It has witnessed the progress of climbers in Taiwan in leaps and bounds.  It is also a place for many with countless memories.  Hard to say goodbye.  Thank you STONE for all the joys of climbing you’ve brought to us!
