Climbing the world

I am a big fan of climbing, I started when i was a kid then I stopped and getting back to it 2 years ago with my american friends. I try to climb as much as possible outside. Unfortunately, in Dallas or now in Singapore it’s not the best places. However, I have been to few places already with nice spots.

For Asian routes one of the best site is thecrag.com

For the US routes one useful website is : mountainproject


Arkansas , US

Nice place, horseshoe Canyon, 6 hours drive from Dallas, you end up in a nice camp where you can put your tent and prepare a fire for the night. Walking distance to the first routes. There are also showers and toilets available –> more detailed


Reimers Ranch, TX, US 

With over 300 routes, Reimers is sure to please any sport climber looking for a good time. Routes are no taller than 50 feet, but the routes are sustained for the grade, ranging from 5.6 (5b) to a newly developed 5.14 (8b+).

Batu Caves, Malaysia

One of the easiest area to climb from Singapore. 1 hour flight from Singapore airport, then 45 min car to Kuala Lumpur and then 20 min to batu cave. Easily done over a weekend. Batu cave has nice routes and all levels. –> more detailed


Lopburi, Thailand 

Lopburi is a bit more difficult to access, 2 hours flight from Singapore, then 2 hours from Bangkok. There we only did the multi pitch but I think there are some route available for single pitch.

Beautiful Krabi, one of the best climbing area in the world. Lot’s of grades and routes. The area is just breathtaking. A must, for climbers. Some area are very polished and some others would need a bit of repairs.
