Rock Climbing at Rocky Basecamp @ Tebrau City [JB}

Rock Climbing is a fun, physical activity that is suitable for all ages. In fact, I think the younger the children are exposed to the sport, the better, as my teens who used to enjoy the activity when they were younger, are now fearful of heights and falls as they get older and tend to shun away from the climb.

Located in AEON Tebrau City, Rocky Basecamp is one of the first indoor climbing centre in Malaysia. It has speed wall, lead wall measuring 15 meters and fun walls which are about 10 meters high!

Took some time to convince our children to try it. As it was an impromptu decision, we did not have socks and have to purchase some pairs before heading in. Climbing shoes are included on complimentary basis and climbers are not allowed to carry mobile phones, sharp objects that may pose safety threat into the climbing area especially items that may fall off easily and injured others.

Safety is important and hence all climbers have to spend the first half hour going through introduction, safety briefing, warm up exercise, basic climbing practice and how to fit the harness with the instructor. After which, climbers are free to go to the main climbing area.

Children going through basic warm up exercise which is needed prior to engaging in any sports activity.

Our kids had a go at the lower walls where the instructor asked them to climb their way from one end to the other.

Looks simple.. but its actually tiring.


Finally, they moved on to fit on their harness and learning the ropes on how to manage the auto belay walls. This is extremely important before the climbers engaged in any climb as that will be their safety rope!

Rocky Basecamp has various climbing walls suit for beginners to advance level. The area is air-conditioned and spaciously spread out. Parents/Guardians who are not climbing and supervising their children have ample of space to sit and rest their feet.

All the Fun Walls are built for climbers 4 years old and above or weight more than 20kg but not exceeding 120kg for safety purposes. Each wall are trendily themed with bright colours and state of the art designs. The goal - to reach the highest spot!

There are various fun themes - galaxy, astronomy, library, robot, tall towers and each of them is a different challenge and difficulty.

The library theme wall is pretty popular among children as you will notice protruding book boxes (nicely camouflaged) which allows climbers to have rest their feet and take a break before heading up.

King Kong inspired wall is fun too! You can either choose to climb your way up to meet the gorilla, or climb on the ladder to reach the helicopter. 

Sport climbing can burn a lot of calories making it a great sport to keep in shape. No wonder Gladys was so exhausted after 1 hour. Thankfully there are many bean bags around to rest on.

Tried of climbing but still game for more? Rocky Basecamp also has Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course (Age 9 years and above) for those who wants to see how well they fare! Definitely no easy feat too even for adults!

Some of the features in clude - salmon ladder, spider wall, ring slider, pole climb, monkey bars and more!

If you like fun, excitement, sports and particularly climbing - Rocky Basecamp is sure to rock you up and get fit!
