Beitou IDEA Re-opening as Da Vinci Rock Climbing Gym on July 19th

davinci

Beitou Sports Center’s IDEA Climbing Gym, which has been closed for close to a year, has finally finished renovations and is re-opening July 19th as Da Vinci Rock Climbing Gym run by Gaia Adventure School.

Featuring new management, the gym has been completely cleaned and reset with brand new Entreprise holds over the existing panels  as well as the old-school “organs”(incut circular holds) you know and love.

The new gym’s opening hours have been adjusted, and will be weekdays 1pm to 9:30pm and weekends 9am to 7pm. Tickets will be $150 per day, or $80 for students, both of which seem reasonable for a roped climbing gym in Taipei. Interestingly, the “climbing experience” package which includes equipment rental is the same $150 price.

Beitou IDEA Climbing Gym Closing for Good

idea

Having shut doors “for renovations” since Fall of 2013, a new message on their front page along with instructions for refunding memberships indicates Beitou sports center’s IDEA Climbing gym is officially ending operations.

Is this the end of one of Taipei’s best beginner gyms and climbing mainstays? It’s not so clear – the wording of the closing announcement indicates it may simply be a change in management. Stay tuned…

評論:
內湖不錯,有台北最高的人工岩壁。左邊overhang真的有點難度!

優點

  • 這邊的教練懂攀岩。相信這邊的攀岩課程應該也蠻專業的。
  • 最近定了一些不錯的上攀和抱石路線
  • 牆壁,器材,岩點都保持的良好
  • Overhang牆下雨天還是可以爬

缺點

  • 外面平面牆不避雨。
  • 這邊有平面牆,大角度牆,但是小一點的角度(10至20度)就不存在。

注意:最近戶外右邊牆上裝上了凸出的地形點所以要小心,不要在有地形點的線爬先鋒。
