Bouldering or rock climbing is actually one of the most sought-after indoor activities. They focused mainly on your biceps, triceps, upper body strength and overall stamina. It’s a matter of maintaining your endurance, getting over your fear of heights and of course poking a bit of fun at yourself.

For those of you who have never tried the wall-crawl or bouldering experience before let me tell you, it’s not as easy as it seems. Luckily in Singapore, there are plenty of places that offer beginner courses for new bouldering members.

Be sure to invest in the best rock climbing shoes if you could, but most places will offer their own so don’t fuss about it. Here are some of the best rock climbing places in Singapore to visit this weekend!
