Sport Climbing Competition Venue of Hangzhou Asian Games: Shaoxing Keqiao Yangshan Sport Climbing Centre 

Sport climbing was included for the first time in the last year's Tokyo Olympics and is an official sport of Hangzhou Asian Games. At present, sport climbing has attracted more and more young people, as outward bound & leisure sports are gaining popularity. 

In Tonglu County Jiangbei Gymnasium, young students are looking up at the dense slopers on the "cliff" as they are heading for the terminal. The young climbers, whose ages ranging from 7 to 15, are taking sport climbing class in holidays or at night in their spare time to have their muscles battered repeatedly. The best of them will participate in this year's Zhejiang Sports Meeting and National Youth Games 2023. For old-generation sport climbing fans in Hangzhou, the natural rocks in Lingshan Scenic Area, South Peak and Baoshi Mountain are good places for sport climbing. 

"Exquisite camping" overwhelms the Wechat Moments and people build up passion for "sports + tourism", so sport climbing will also become a popular leisure & recreation way. With popularity of short videos, cool destinations tend to go viral online and high-end camping plus outdoor sports pattern gradually comes into fashion.
