T-Up Bouldering Gym Wanhua
Hours: M-F 12pm-11pm, Weekends 9am-9pm

Pricing: Varies. See price list below.
Discounted memberships and Student prices are available and make things more reasonable.

Rating: ★★★★½ 

Notes: Very well run bouldering gym near Long Shan temple. Good routes with great holds and tons of volumes, updated regularly. Air conditioning. Good wall design. Open all day. All around solid. One caveat – grading here is fairly stiff – not a great place for beginners, but for everyone else its an excellent gym.

Prices are steep, but going at late night or getting 套票 makes things much more reasonable.

A recent expansion has made T-Up much bigger than before. Total climbing area is now comparable to STONE, and there is even a mini playground for kids on the third floor.

Rating: ★★★★½ 

Notes: Pogo is run by four of the top climbers/setters in Taiwan, and it shows. The quality of setting is very high, yet despite being run by very strong climbers, there is something for everyone here. Problems here require technique and finesse as much as power – this is a place that rewards good technique. Grading is consistent at each level, and similar to American gym grades

Walls are around 4m high – just tall enough to keep it interesting, yet not high enough to be dangerous. The facilities themselves are simple but fairly well designed(though we would prefer more space between the left and right walls).

Overall, the routes make this well worth visiting, especially for beginner to intermediate climbers(v0-v4).
