I went to ROX last week to sign up for the upcoming Nature’s Trail Discovery Run. I also wanted to check out the indoor wall there which was put up only in May last year. Having visited ROX several times before, I wasn’t sure how they could have fit a 40-foot climbing wall in the building.
But apparently there’s plenty of space for the facility. This is probably the most ‘high end’ of Power Up gyms. There’s even an electronic timer on one of the walls for people who want to sample speed climbing.
People from the southern part of Metro Manila who want to try out climbing definitely need to check this place out. The place is spacious and well lit. The aircon inside ROX also helps.
Kids from seven to twelve years old were happily climbing away at the five basic lines of Power Up ROX. From the looks of it, the place is quite popular with kids. I wanted to try out the walls for myself but I didn’t want to take over some kid’s place in the queue for a belayer :P Let the kids have their fun. But I also promised myself that I’ll definitely come back here again.
On August, 31 Saturday, Power Up-ROX will host a Speed Climbing competition.
