詳情: 紅石是台灣第一間用單色訂線的抱石館。空間夠大,有空調,有飲水機,路線好玩,有不同角度的牆壁,和這邊有頂級的訓練器材。

因為牆壁只到3m高和這邊簡單的路線(“白色”)不是那麼多,所以STONE和信儀會更適合新手。但如果你可以挑戰“銀色”路線(v2-v3),這是台北地區的頂級抱石館。

Notes: Well designed, with 5 meter high walls at all angles, good routesetting, good holds, and even a foot bath! This is a very well run bouldering gym, a great place to climb on fun problems and get strong!

A far out location makes this gym less ideal for dates and casual climbers but if you enjoy bouldering and have the time, STONE is definitely worth making the trek for.

New Bouldering Gym Opening June 19th Near Shilin Night Market

rr main

Taipei City’s third bouldering gym, Red Rock, opens this Friday June 19th near Shilin Night Market.

Housed in a spacious 300 square meter underground facility, the new gym is located 11 minutes walking distance from Jiantan MRT station. With tons of climbing space, monochrome routesetting, and–no joke– air conditioning, Red Rock sets a new standard for bouldering gyms in Taiwan.

We took a sneak peek at the gym and we liked what we saw.

rr2

Red Rock is the first gym in Taiwan with Monochrome setting. No more spending minutes looking for a route, only to forget the holds when you’re on the wall.

Monochrome setting also means the holds are chosen specifically for the route. Taiwan’s gyms traditionally use the Japanese style of routesetting where holds go up first, and routes are made later and marked with tape or metal plates. While minor adjustments do happen, for the most part this limits routesetters to what’s on the wall. At Red Rock, each route uses its own set of holds, resulting in problems that feel more specific, more “tailor-fit”. Compared to other gyms in Taiwan, you’ll find more forced moves, technical footwork and body-position dependent problems.

rr training

Besides solid setting, Red Rock brings superb training facilities. With steep walls up to 60 degrees, multiple campus boards, a Rock Prodigy Training Center fingerboard, Olympic Rings, and even a Moonboard, this place is undoubtedly now the number one place in the the country for getting strong.

Quality comes at a cost — Red Rock’s pricing is $250, the highest in Taiwan, up there with STONE’s weekend pricing. During the opening weekend from 6/19 to 6/21 Red Rock is offering a 2 for one deal on day passes. These don’t expire, so you can hoard them for later use if so inclined.

rrtransport

Red Rock is located 11 min walking distance from Jiantan station at No.261 B1 Chengde Rd section 4, and there are youbike stations at Jiantan station and Shilin sports center to cut that trip in half. This makes it one of the most convenient gyms in Taipei.

Red Rocks’ professional staff, 3 meter high walls and sweet location are all reminiscent of the legendary LZS bouldering gym that gathered Taipei climbers of all walks of life together into one convenient urban climbing gym. Will it live up to the hype?  Time will only tell.

Big Cannon Cliff Now Very Illegal to Climb at

bcc signs

photo – Two Teeth

Always a bit legally sketchy, Taiwanese climber “Two Teeth” reports that climbing at Big Cannon Cliff(Da Pau Yen) has now become very very illegal, based on the number of new signs and warning tape that has been erected at the entrance to the trail. The new signs promise a hefty fine of $15,000TWD if caught in the area.

Rather than a specific warning towards climbers, the current signs restrict access in general to the path.  While we are not sure if enforcement will be increased compared to the past, it does seem like park officials are taking this more seriously than before. We advise climbers looking for climbing in the Beitou area to consider Rehai instead, which remains unrestricted as it doesn’t fall under Yangmingshan park jursidiction.
