Rock Climbing Gyms – Sydney

I enjoy a spot of bouldering. I’m not very good at it, mostly sticking to beginner climbs but it’s an activity that makes me feel good. I started noting down what gyms I could go for a morning climb and created this PDF listing all of the places I know of in Sydney.

BlocHaus

This place is awesome. It’s huge and there’s some top out climbs. It’s a little different to 9 degrees but nice when you want to mix things up a little.

Nomad

Nomad is another bouldering gym. I really like it. There’s more of a focus on strength over balance when compared to 9 degrees but it’s also good to mix things up. It’s also close to wayward brewery.
