You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to rock climbing gyms in Singapore! Except for the “extreme” west (and that may change very soon!), gyms are dotted all over the island. There’s a lot of variety in the gyms too. They range from sprawling 5000 square foot ones with 500 square meters of climbing surface, to tiny ones that kinda look like a converted living room. I’ve tried to summarise the facilities and prices of all the rock climbing gyms (I’m aware of) in Singapore using tables below. Hopefully this makes it easier for you to decide which gym to visit!

Prices (for adults) and booking
At the time I am writing this, Covid-19 is still a thing in Singapore so you’ll need to be fully vaccinated to enter the gyms. Slots are now 2 hours long and you’ll need to wear a mask while climbing. Yes, that means mask on even while you’re on the wall. It’s a pain but you kinda get used to it.
For first timers to any Singapore rock climbing gym, you’ll need to fill in the gym’s waiver form before you climb. It’ll be available either on their website or on their app. Filling it in before you go down will save you a bit of time and hassle when you get there. Some gyms will also run through some safety stuff with you before they allow you to climb. They’ll usually do this even if you’re a seasoned climber, so just note that and don’t get pissy at the counter staff, ok? They’re just doing their jobs.
