A cosy spot for climbers to just boulderpeople watch and have fun. Great location given that is located right at a big mrt station interchange crossing the circle line and east west line.
The Promenade Pelikat is a small little mall that just opened, and I really hope to visit this gym soon. Clean, fresh with air purifiers and towels even, it will be one of the fanciest gyms you will see in Singapore. So instead of working long shifts and work hours, hit the gym for a new workout and indoor fitness hobby. Its unique feature is that it is an augmented reality rock climbing wall.
We are coming soon in Dec ! Little sneak, this gym location has a pool, sauna and even a co-working place facility linked to it.
Of coz there is so much more gyms to explore beyond Singapore in Malaysia and Thailand for example. Wednesday evenings in the city, and Sunday evenings at various locations. Purple Light runners enjoy the camaraderie and conversations they have while running, so join them if you're looking for some relaxed runs! The Singapore Shufflers mean business. The minimum requirements are for runners to be able to run 5km under 30 minutes!
The main focus of the Singapore Shufflers would be to improve personal times through their weekly interval sessions as a form of speed work to compliment individual programs. But off the track, it's all smiles as runners chat over dinner after training.

Definitely a great choice for intermediate to advanced runners looking to push their limits and train in a motivated group. The number of recreational climbers has grown from 20, six years ago to more than 50, today, said the Singapore Mountaineering Federation, which promotes climbing here and issues certification for the sport.
There are now 10 climbing gyms that run the gamut from large all-in-one hubs to outdoor centres to boutique spaces that focus on bouldering climbing that involves a shorter wall of about 4m and is done sans ropes and harnesses. Clip 'n Climb Clip 'n Climb Quirkily designed walls awash in bright colours greet climbers at Clip 'n Climb, which is not your runof-the-mill indoor climbing joint. There are 17 wall designs in the sq m facility, such as the snaking beanstalk from fairy tale Jack And The Beanstalk, a lightning bolt and Morse code-inspired one.
Some of the climbing structures do not resemble walls - one is in the shape of a skinny tree trunk, while another looks like a twisted DNA strand made out of colourful blocks. Clip 'n Climb, from New Zealand, is a particularly fun introduction to climbing for children and beginners as an uncomplicated auto- belay system that eliminates the need for a human belayer is used for each 8m-high wall.
Climbers need to undergo only a short safety briefing before they are good to go. There is no minimum age for climbers, they just need to weigh between 10 and kg.

Seasoned climbers can look out for walls which are labelled as more difficult or try a harder route. Noon to 9pm Mondays to Thursdays, except first Monday of the month, when it opens from 2 to 9pm ; 10am to 11pm Fridays, Saturdays, school holidays and eve of public holidays ; 10am to 9pm Sundays and public holidays Admission: Two people are required to pair up: The climber attaches himself to one end of the rope, which passes up through an anchor to the top of the wall.
The other end is held by the belayer on the ground to prevent falls and help the climber descend. In lead climbing, the climber does not have an anchor point above him.

Instead, he has to clip the rope through quickdraws, or fixed anchors attached to the wall, as he scales upwards. A belayer is required and has an even more crucial role here. He does not just hold on to the rope, but also either feeds the climber more or pulls it in to ensure the climber has an appropriate amount of rope to progress.
There is no need for a harness, rope or belayer. No certification is required too. This is because the walls are typically between 4m and 6m high and there are padded mats on the floor to cushion falls.
Unlike top-rope and lead climbing, dynamic and powerful movements are needed here for manoeuvring the best route. Not many climbing spaces offer this as it is typically for competitive climbers training for championships. The route is determined by the International Federation of Sport Climbing to keep it standardised across gyms.
