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!
