wall Climb was RM90 and the Rock Climb was RM190.. zzz I also feel a bit expensive for students ... what to do.. I want to step into that rock climbing field but I know no one. But after that.. I roughly have some basic knowledge regarding that.. I am now considering to take advance rock climbing. Looking for some people who can teach me properly. yeah ! but provided that it is Cheap ~ or else I think I will just forget it... becoz I know the equipments are not cheap also.
