In the last decade, the popularity of climbing had grown. Climbing is no longer just a sport for the old school climbers who are training to achieve their hardest outdoor climbing grade or scaling multi-pitch routes. Climbing has evolved to a sport where anyone, yes literally anyone can try.
The number of climbing gyms had increased in the past decade. Currently, there are over 20 climbing gyms in Singapore, and climbers are spoilt for choice.
One of the newer boulder gyms is Z-Vertigo. It is conveniently located next to Beauty World MRT station. Z-Vertigo is in Bukit Timah Shopping Centre basement 2 just a short walk from the MRT station (Exit A). It takes a little extra effort to find the gym for the first time. If you enter Bukit Timah Shopping Centre from the front go down to basement 2 and turn right toward the far right end of the shopping center. You’ll see the entrance to Z-Vertigo.
Most climbing gyms are situated in the central area of Singapore Z-Vertigo is located in the west hence for climbers living in the west this is good news.
