Climbing

Surely you are studying to get to the top? If you're the adventurous type who likes excitement, climbing is for you. Whether indoors on the climbing wall or outdoors on a real rock face, climbing is an extremely challenging sport.

The objective is to get to the top: the highest point of the wall or the summit of the mountain. Doing so will give you an immense feeling of satisfaction. You will want to take a more difficult route each time, pushing back your boundaries and challenging yourself even more. Climbing might appear simple: you just clamber your way up, don't you? Well, try it for yourself! The thrill of completing a difficult route entirely under your own steam is indescribable. You'll be exhausted, but you will have achieved your aim. And on a real rock face, your rewards will be great. There is likely to be a breathtaking view! You'll have time for a few minutes reflecting on the beauty of nature before abseiling back down and planning your next route.

Climbing pass

If you wish to use the Sports Center's climbing wall, you must be in possession of a climbing authorization. It is issued only to those who can show that they know and apply all safety procedures. Unless you can show that you have done a previous climbing course for beginners, you must join a beginners course, before you start using the climbing wall. A climbing authorization will be issued at the sole discretion of the Sports Center's own climbing instructor and/or an independent assessor from the national TilSAC climbing federation (Membership of TilSAC is not required to use the climbing wall.)

Individual climbing

Everyone in possession of a climbing authorization can use (in pairs) the climbing wall during certain hours. You can then work on your techniques and general climbing fitness.

Liquid magnesium is used during the practice of climbing on the climbing wall of the Sports Center. Powder magnesium causes a slippery floor. As this is not desirable, the use of liquid magnesium is mandatory.

Climbing safety course (level 1) Indoortoprope

Our instructor will teach you the basics of sports climbing in the beginners' course. In four sessions at the Sports Center you will learn the basics of belaying, 'falling', rope techniques, climbing ethics and basic climbing techniques. Climbing is for everyone! What is more, at the end of the beginners' course you will receive a climbing authorization and a climbing certificate if you like. The climbing authorization in your Sports Center profile is free of charge. If you like to apply for the official climbing certificate, we charge you 5,00 euro. After completing the course, you can move on to advanced training sessions in order to learn all the ins and outs of climbing. You will receive your climbing certificate digitally.
