The other side of the gym.
Now here's the other side of the climbing gym where the beginners/amateurs/pros can do their stuffs. :) Well, mostly the beginners and the intermediate climbers, below there are a few more walls but I think here's where all the action is...loads of different routes to take here.
I do love the carpet here though, I wonder if I can get them for my room? haha.. :P Anyways, it was really fun climbing again since I've not done it for quite a while now and after climbing almost half of the afternoon, I can safely say that I'm definitely in a very bad shape. Every part of my body is pretty much aching already, maybe it's just cause I'm not doing it the right way...oh well,bottom line is that I should get more exercise. :P
It got quite pack during the late afternoon, maybe cause it was the school holidays...our group already had about 10 people and I think around 4pm there was at least double the amount of people climbing. Crazy! But I guess during non-school holidays and weekdays, the crowd isn't that bad.
Really pity Suzanne cause she was the only one that couldn't climb because she was just 2 months away from turning 18. Everyone else was either over 18 or the brother/sister [legal guardian] was there to sign off on the forms. People, if you have been to the Summit climbing gym, this place is NOT like that. This gym [Camp-5] is the largest indoor climbing gym in Asia and they are certified...so the procedures here are a bit tighter than usual.
If you're under 18 and your brother/sister is not with you when you come here for the first time to climb. Bring along ur brother/sister/parents to sign off on the registration form. For first-timers here, it might take awhile to fill in the forms and whatnots, so better come about 1 hour earlier than you expect to start climbing. That's of course if you have climbed before and still remember how to.
Cause it took us about 1 hour today just to get in and start climbing, mostly because it was our first time so they had to explain all the safety stuffs and other things required by the international body that certifies their gym. But all in all, it was fun...i guess. If there wasn't that many people around, sometimes hogging the routes. :P Definitely better than the climbing gym in Summit but then again, there's no comparison, Camp-5 is certified by the British Mountain Council...so they have to be better. :)
