Rock Climbing Vietnam and Southeast Asia

Last month, AsiaLIFE junior writer Stephen Wright covered the rise of rock climbing in Ho Chi Minh City. The peg was the opening of X Rock‘s second climbing location in District 3, but he went above and beyond the call of duty, ferreting out some great rock climbing in Southeast Asia (with the help of resident climbing guru Richard Carrington). The article made it’s way to Tuoi Tre‘s English-language portal Vietnewsonline.vn. If you’re looking to get your hands dirty in Vietnam and Southeast Asia, check out Rock On.

Also on the Vietnam rock climbing front, Amy Morison, editor of Live Hoi An magazine, put the word out about the new climbing trips to the Marble Mountains offered by Phat Tire Ventures in this month’s AsiaLIFE Getaways feature, “Our Girl in Hoi An.”

  1. Rock climbing in Vietnam looks cool – beats the heck out of the local gym. Wonder if they’ll send me a free day pass if I pay for the flights.

    Hey climbers,

    Rock-climbing in Northern Vietnam is cool, with plenty of possibilities.

    I’m also surprised than Southern climbers don’t boulder in areas such as Nha Trang, Dam Mon or Ca Na.
