The facility showcases the highest standard of climbing wall technology, thanks to the collaboration with Walltopia, the world’s leading climbing wall manufacturer. With photogenic wood-paneled walls and a collection of vibrant, top-notch holds from international brands, climbers are in for a visually stunning experience.

Safety is the top priority at Camp5, as it has been for the past 18 years of operation. The gym is committed to educating climbers about best safety practices, providing programs and certifications for new climbers, and ensuring staff members undergo rigorous training to become internationally certified climbing instructors. Camp5 KL East ensures that climbers have everything they need for a comfortable and enjoyable experience. The fully air-conditioned facility provides free lockers, hot showers, and a cozy Eat Well Cafe, offering healthy and delicious meals to refuel climbers after their adventures on the walls.

“We believe climbing should be accessible to everyone, and Camp5 KL East is the embodiment of our mission – ‘Climbing for Everyone.’ With a vibrant and safe climbing environment, we invite everyone to embrace the thrill of climbing and be part of our growing climbing community,” said the Camp5 representative.
