Climbing as a sport

A section explaining what climbing as a sport entails. Here it is discussed that climbing involves both physical and mental challenges and requires a combination of strength, endurance, technique and concentration.

Different climbing disciplines

In the world of climbing, there are several disciplines, each with its own unique characteristics and challenges. Whether you like adrenaline rush, technical challenges or pure strength and balance, there is something for everyone.

Sport Climbing

Sport climbing is a common discipline in which climbers follow routes equipped with hooks. There are two variants: toprope and lead. With toprope climbing, the rope already hangs in front of you, as it does in our climbing halls, while with lead climbing, the climber takes the rope himself and places sets along the way to hang the rope in. Both variants you can practice in our climbing halls.


Bouldering, on the other hand, is usually a more explosive discipline. Here you climb without a rope on short, powerful routes called "boulders." The challenge lies in solving complex movement puzzles at a maximum height of 4 meters. Strength, balance, flexibility and creativity are important elements in bouldering.

Speed climbing

And then we have speed climbing, which is all about climbing a standard route as fast as possible. It is an explosive discipline that combines strength, agility and speed. Who can beat the clock and set the fastest time? That's what it's all about in the end.

Traditional climbing

For the more adventurous among us, there is traditional climbing, where you place your own intermediate fuses in holes and crevices in the rocks. It requires technical skills, knowledge of materials and an understanding of safety procedures. Exploring unclimbed routes and relying on your own equipment adds an extra dimension of adventure.

Finally, there is ice climbing, a challenging discipline that involves climbing frozen waterfalls and ice formations. It takes strength, precision and confidence in your equipment to find grip on the slippery ice. The breathtaking views and unique environment make ice climbing an unforgettable experience.
