The long awaited I-Lan bouldering gym YOY(Chinese name: Kavalan 歪仔歪) is finally re-opening after a 2 year hiatus. Originally planned to open in 2010, then 2011, construction delays and the slower I-Lan pace of life seemed to have  pushed the opening date later than expected.

Nevertheless the gym is finally opening, as is Taiwanese tradition, with an opening day bouldering competition!

The comp will be held Saturday January 18th, 2014  and feature cash prizes!

The gym has been extremely  secretive and photos have been sparse, but interesting tidbits such as wooden holds, So Ill Macros, and even crack features have been spotted. We’re very curious what the gym will turn out to be like.

The gyms official website is Yoy.tw, and their FB page is here
