Hello Freinds

Adventure called this weekend, luring my friend and I to test our climbing skills at Da Nang’s first bouldering gym, the Danang Climbing Gym. Though new to scaling walls, we felt an irresistible pull to challenge ourselves on the towering structures. After grabbing coffee for courage, we were off to hoist ourselves skyward, pretending to be daring primates.

The Day Starts at Danang Climbing Gym

Arriving at the Danang Climbing Gym, the indoor space was empty and peaceful. As newbies, having the walls all to ourselves was ideal. My friend and I gleefully geared up with shoes and chalk, eager to mimic the gravity-defying moves we’d seen on YouTube.

The gym’s bouldering walls soared 15-20 feet up with multi-colored grips jutting out at varied angles and difficulty levels. Even the beginner routes looked daunting from ground level. We started tentatively, practicing moves on some low walls to build confidence.

Soon we felt bold enough to tackle some intermediate-level ascents. The first few attempts were humbling, arms trembling as we struggled to secure foot placement. But gradually, the technique started to click.

There’s an addictive thrill to clinging vertically, hunting for the next grip to propel you higher. Reaching a hold you initially thought impossible provides a glorious rush. My friend and I whooped and hollered with each new personal record.

The mental game is key in bouldering. Staring up from solid ground, summits seem miles away. But closing in on the top, the inverse viewpoint makes your starting point appear tiny and far below. That upside-down visual trickery amps up the adrenaline.

Despite the padded floor, the risk of slipping also accelerates the heart rate. I had to push past fears and trust my hands and feet. While we avoided major falls, we left decorated in small bruises from controlled slides back to earth. Battle scars proving our courage!

After two hours of climbing at the Danang Climbing Gym, we were happily exhausted. My friend was eager to return and conquer the walls that had thwarted us this round. We both saw improvement even after one session, proving that persistence pays off.

I highly recommend checking out the Danang Climbing Gym if you’re visiting Da Nang. A day pass is only 150,000 VND (about $6.50 USD). The friendly staff will get you set up with gear and offer tips. It’s a super fun outlet for exercise and adventure.

While I clearly need more practice, I’m excited to build strength and technique. My friend and I can’t wait for our next climbing date to defy gravity and reach for new heights, both literal and metaphorical.

Onward and upward!

Oh, Also, I think this place was once a bar before becoming a climbing gym; I spotted this mural behind the wall when I was on top.

I’m always seeking out new adventures to push my boundaries and discover the world’s wonders. Whether trekking through forests, learning local customs, or tasting exotic foods, I love immersing myself in experiences far beyond the ordinary. It brings me joy to collaborate with fascinating, authentic people and places to unveil hidden gems that most tourists miss.

My passion is finding these off-the-beaten-path adventures and sharing tales and tips so others can also venture into the unknown. Every journey reveals something new about a culture, location or activity.

Collaborating with enthusiastic local guides, businesses, and communities allows me to go beyond surface-level experiences. Together we craft memorable adventures that inspire and educate. I feel grateful for every opportunity to uncover the lesser-known stories and secrets in destinations near and far.
