Hey guys,

Is there any of you currently living in Ho Chi Minh City and climbing at the gym there? How're the gyms?

From what I found online, it seems most of the gyms there charge as much as ones in the states but given the locals there have way lower expense standard than Americans.

Hey Sam,

Yeah, my folks still live back there, I am originally from there but have not been back there for 5+ years. So all I know is that they have new climbing gyms setup there nowadays, just to see if anyone here has climbed there recently and what you think
