Price: $150/day – Pay at the first floor front desk before going up to the 7th Floor.
Notes: Xinyi is a convenient bouldering gym great for beginner to intermediate climbers.
High walls, challenging routes and thick pads make it a good place to learn to climb better. In addition, the gym has quite a few angles and uses volumes generously to give depth to the terrain, making for some interesting routes.
One issue with the design of the gym is that since the entire gym is a climbing area, when the gym is crowded, there’s no place you can really sit that is completely safe from falling climbers so keep an eye out.
Recently, the quality of the routes has been mixed, and there simply are not enough of them for a gym of this size. That and the lack of new routes makes it hard for us to give it a higher rating.
