You’d be forgiven for having missed it, but fitness fans in Dubai now have next to no reason for missing the emirate’s largest climbing wall.
So, budding (or very much active) climbing enthusiasts, you now have new weekend plans. You’re welcome.
Tucked away on the southern side of Business Bay, Mountain Extreme offers two huge walls for the eager clamberers among us, who really like a harness-based challenge. While there are a couple of beginner walls, as well as a bouldering wall too – for the climbers who prefer to freestyle it a bit more, at a lower height, without the need for harnesses and all that jazz.
Darragh from Team Time Out was, rather randomly, joined by Spider-Man for the afternoon, who was supposed to show him ropes and get the hang of this climbing malarkey.
Suffice it to say, it didn’t go well.
You can watch the whole episode below, and if you sign up to Time Out Dubai’s YouTube channel, you can still win fitness classes at Pole Fit Dubai in Dubai Marina.
Every week we get out and about into this awesome city and find out the best stuff there is going on. Whether it’s jumping out of planes, jumping off of mountains, swimming with sharks, failing to surf, taking on the city’s craziest food challenges, getting a kiss from a seal, falling out of supercars or anything in between, if it’s happening in your city, the Time Out Dubai crew are on it.
