Description 

Let's just get this out of the way up front: Singapore is NOT a climbing destination.

However, as Singapore is a frequent business destination and a travel hub where many of us have been stuck at one time or another, I figured we might as well put information on-line for those interested, or just stuck there by luck of the draw.

The only legal natural rock climbing in Singapore that is anything more than a sloping pebble is at a Wall called 'Dairy Farm' near Bukit Timah nature preserve. There, an old granite quarry lives out its days watching mountain bikers, day hikers, church groups and climbers spend their forlorn days wishing they lived in a country with better climbing, biking, hiking, etc... But none the less, making the best of what they have, in 90+ degree heat and 90% relative humidity.

Take an umbrella, chalk, and suitable clothing for the harsh heat and humidity.

Getting There 

Well, by plane. Once in Singapore, the MRT and cabs are the way to travel, and although cabs are much more expensive than the trains, they are still cheap by our standards.

Featured Route For Singapore
Starting "the little mermaid" 5.11 <br />This climb gushes water if it has rained any time in the last few days. So, basically all the time in Singapore <br />

The Little Mermaid 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  Asia : Singapore : ... : American Pie Section
A good route for the area. This is the left-most sport climb on the American Pie Section of wall and borders the left edge of the eastwardly face, passing 8 bolts through pretty good face-climbing to a bolted anchor just below the top of the cliff....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
