New Bouldering Gym Opening + Competition!

It’s official — Climb Alpine, the company that brought you Xinyi Bouldering gym, is opening Civic Bouldering Gym in Taipei, early April!

The location will be 5 minutes walking from Nangang Exhibition Hall station, the space looks pretty big  – between Xinyi and STONE in size, and they’ll be using HRT holds, the same holds used in international climbing competitions, so we’re pretty psyched!

They’re starting things off with a competition:

Note: Google labels it as “Shimin Blvd.”, but the name on the street sign says Civic Blvd.

Price: $300 TWD

Divisions: Men’s, Women’s.

This is an amateur competition so competitors who have either ranked in the Top 3 in an amateur division, or particpated in the open divison of a bouldering comp are not allowed to register.
