Climber Fang Hsiang from Taiwan has just solved a V13 bouldering problem “Deep Blue Sea”

Climber Fang Hsiang from Taiwan has just solved a V13 bouldering problem “Deep Blue Sea” in Black Cave near Sydney, Australia.  It is very likely the first time a Taiwanese reached this grade.  Take a look at the great short video clip!  The first half of the film is a record of more than 50 failed attempts in 6 days, which is what we all know too well about bouldering: Keep falling; keep trying; learn and make progress from it!

One of the biggest bouldering gyms, STONE, will be closed on March 31, 2019.

From Jan. 01, to Mar. 31, 2019 the prices will be changed.  Discount tickets can still be used or refunded (details will be announced soon on their FB page).

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!
