My 1st Bouldering at Climb Asia (60 Tessensohn Rd)

Just went for my first Bouldering (Indoor Rock Climbing) session yesterday at the Climb Asia located at Tessensohn Clubhouse, Civil Service Club.

The idea of doing some bouldering workout was initiated by Rachel (one of my church buddies) after hearing that I needed to shed some pounds but wished that it would not be boring like jogging & stuff...

With a bit of a height phobia, the bouldering gym with thick protective floor mattress on the 2nd floor of the Tessensohn Clubhouse was perfect for a newbie like myself. Btw, Rachel is also a newbie who had probably attended 2-3 bouldering sessions before.

Below are some shots of my virgin experience:
