Longshan Temple MRT Station (BL10) Wanhua Railway Station
One of the most popular and fabulous bouldering gym in Taiwan, with clean equipment and high-quality routes. Cultivated their own route setters, T-UP reset the route each wall every week. The 1st floor is the main area with everything; the 2nd floor is for teaching and stretch; the 3rd floor is for kids. Try to avoid visit T-UP on weekday night because sometimes there’s too many people.
I haven’t visited yet, but it is not doubted popular. Launched in 2020, T-UP Zhonghe has the newest facilities, devices, and equipment. This gym has unique features in Taiwan, such as the auto-belay devices. Yet, it is the most expensive one here.

The best part of RedRock is it has various training facilities for climbers, such as campus boards, fingerboards, moon board, and pegboard. In addition, Redrock also provides bands, TRX, bars, and rings. Therefore, Redrock is a great place for advanced climbing training.
The walls are only 3 meters tall, which is good for those who are afraid of height; the warm-up and beta videos and app are friendly for beginners. Redrock also has challenging overhang routes for advanced climbers. Overall, this is an excellent gym for climbers in every level. For the first-time visitors, please do check the photos in your Google Map, since people always ignore the entrance to the underground.
The biggest climbing gym in New Taipei City, containing a standard place for sport climbing. Some areas might be unavailable for campaigns, so please check their website before you visit. The gym is on the 6th floor of the sports center and you’ll need to buy the ticket on the 1st floor first. From MRT station to the place, you’ll need approximately 20 minutes’ walk. Alternatively, you are able to rent YouBike since there’s a bike station right in front of the climbing gym.
Note: Now I am not sure if YongHe is the biggest climbing gym in New Taipei City after the opening of T-UP Climbing Gym Zhonghe.
A budget small novice village near Taipei 101 and Xiangshan. Located in CBD, you can imagine that the sports center is relatively small, compared with other gyms. Therefore, this gym only provides a few advanced routes. Apparently, it’s not for me, but I still rated it 3.5 stars for its fantastic location and the authority really did its great job, considering the given cramped room. My other observation is, the neophytes are willing to interact with others, providing a relaxed and social atmosphere. In short, Xinyi is the best bouldering gym for tyros with affordable tickets and rental. When visiting, remember to buy the ticket in advance on the 1st floor.
No chalk bag rental or provided. Climbers can only rent for shoes (NT$ 100).
I wish they could ameliorate their service commensurate with the entrance fee. NT$300 seems invaluable considering the quality and frequency. The only thing I recommend is the ceiling and balanced routes, which are friendly for a dilettante like me. Their new wall contains manifold angles on the vertical section. That is, you are able to complete a route from overhang to vertical to slab at the same time.
