Bloc11 bouldering Gym

Post by Justin » Wed Oct 26, 2016 3:20 pm

So... it would appear that there are some new (old) kids on the block building a new bouldering gym Paarden Eiland (see pics below).

Words describing the upcoming gym have been (as seen on social media :lol:
"awesome, really amazing, incredible... The angles and shapes and sheer size of the space is on a completely different level to anything we have in South Africa."
The gym appears to be opening early next year!?

Then to add a little spice to the story, CityROCK are asking via their Facebook page how people feel about the CityROCK climbing gym also moving to Paarden Eidland - (it's no secret that CityROCK have outgrown their current premises some time ago).

The opening should happen later this year. Trying not to have a defined date just yet, but stay tuned for updates :-)

Maybe worth noting instagram page:
