With so much of the Thao Dien area sat at a below sea level elevation, naturally District 2 has long needed a climbing wall, just so you can grapple your way to safety when the area decides to flood.
For those of you who think that explanation for the opening of Vertical Academy is a load of garbage, you’re probably right. As this bouldering gym and pro climbing wall that comes replete with a showroom and café offers something that this area has never experienced before, a place to climb.
Check it out — it’s pretty cool. There is a Crag and a Cave section on the first floor, with two more sections and a chill-out area to come on floor two. The climbing gym also runs training courses and sells daily climbing passes for VND150,000 (for a 10-visit pass pay VND1 million).
Vertical Academy is at 18 Truc Duong, Q2, Tel: 0966 920612. Check them out on Facebook — facebook.com/vertical.academy.vn
