Unsupervised climbing

Before the upper ropes or walls can be used by visitors without supervision, everyone is expected to have the following necessary skills: correct use of rope, climbing harness and belay device to secure a falling or descending climber.

When entering the climbing hall, every visitor must declare that he/she has the necessary knowledge for the respective activities inside the hall and is aware of the risks involved. In addition, visitors must declare that they are willing to follow the rules of the hall. Those persons who are not able to climb without supervision must be supervised by an instructor. Visitors who are not confident in using the climbing equipment or techniques should not attempt to use them on their own.


Unsupervised teenagers (14 to 17 years)

Experienced and competent young people between the ages of 14 and 17, who are known to both the operators and our instructors and who have the necessary experience and knowledge, may use the hall without supervision and without being accompanied by an adult, provided that the following criteria are met:

Climbing safety

Climbing the rope

  • The rope must be attached to the climbing harness with an 8-knot, which is tied directly to the harness with a latch. It is not permitted to fasten the rope with a carabiner.
  • It is the responsibility of the climber to check whether the partner has the necessary knowledge and skills to secure oneself.
  • When securing the partner, utmost caution is always required.


When belaying
