    1. Hi Gen, There will not be any trad course this year since I’m in Europe looking for more exciting places for the coming year! Next trad course should be in 2014 Feb-March period. Cost will depend one which country it will be in. Usually Taiwan courses starts from $600 onwards.

      1. Hi Gen, yes we can’t do trad climbing courses in Singapore due to lack of cracks and good rocks that new trad climbers needs. But the good news is, Taiwan is only 4.5 hours away and courses usually run between Friday to Monday or Thursday to Sunday. So it should be 2 days leave from work and 4 days out in the rocks.

        If you want to stay on and do more climbing after the course it can be arranged and we can take you to climb some really good stuff!

      2. Hi Gen,it includes your land transfer,breakfast, ccommodation, trad gears and certification. Flight, Food, Shopping and booze not included.

  1. Hello QX,

    I would love to attend a Rockclimbing Level 1 course. So far, the comments I have observed seem to be talking about the “trad course”. Is there any chance that you would be coinciding the Traditional Climbing course and the Rockclimbing Level 1? Or if not, when will there be a Rockclimbing Level 1 course in 2014? I am sure you need to have a minimum number so in that sense, I’m in already!

    Thank you and hope you are having a blast of a time in Europe!

    1. Hi Elton,

      Trad course we refer here is the SNCS Rock Level 1. Where SNCS Rock Level 1 is suppose to be the correct course title, it is pretty vague and people may think they are coming to do just bolted rock climbing or something.

      But yes, Trad Course or SNCS Rock Level 1 will be going on in the beginning of 2014 most likely in Taiwan over a few weekends where you fly in Thursday evening and back to Singapore on the Monday evening. Usually takes about 4 days in Taiwan to get the course over and clock some climbing in.

      I will be looking forward to see you soon for trad climbing!


      1. Hi QX,

        Thank you for the reply. I look forward to the course then! Please drop me an email as soon as you have some sort of confirmation! Thanks!


      1. Thanks QX! Checking my schedule already and will get back to you again. Cheers and Merry Christmas too!

    1. Hi Rina,

      There isn’t a public SNCS Sports level 2 course I run in the gym. Private courses are available between May 12-30th in Singapore.

      If you want to get out here to Taiwan for a holiday and a climbing weekend, I run SNCS sports level 2 outdoors here in Taiwan here too. Do email me at for itinerary.

  3. Hi,
