Questions beforehand

Once you pay at the box office, you have the opportunity to store your personal belongings in lockers, which we provide free of charge. There is also the possibility to use the toilet. Then you will be called to put on your climbing harness. This happens under the guidance of our instructors who will tell you how to put on the climbing harness. The instructor will then check if you have done this correctly. Then you will get an explanation about the climbing, the different courses and with which materials you can undertake certain activities. After the explanation you go over our "practice course" and then towards the starting point of the courses. Here you connect yourself to our exploglider system with which you are continuously secured. begin! You have 2 hours to climb.

The ExpoGlider system is a safety system where the lifeline is hooked up from the very first point you go up. During the course it is attached to the steel cable above the elements. Only at the end of the course can it be disconnected again. As a result, you are continuously secured during the climbing activity and only need to maneuver the ExpoGlider through the turns. There is no disconnection and reconnection during climbing, like the authentic system.

We use the exploglider system. With this you are continuously secured while climbing. Also, we are TÜV certified and our instructors are trained with a multi-day mandatory course that is repeated every year.

A block takes 2.5 hours including instruction. The instruction including putting on materials takes about half an hour. So you have at least 2 hours to climb.
