At the former quarry of the 50ies, of which there is only little left, a climbing area for beginners has emerged. There are only few routes, but it is a perfect area for getting used to rock climbing.

Because of its good location and the pleasant ambiance the climbing garden is ideal for climbing from springtime to late fall.

CLIMBING RULES

Useful advice and a few tips to make climbing easier and safer:

 

  1. Get familiar with the equipment: use only standardized mountain sports equipment (CE sign) & study instructions for use accurately
  2. Partner check before starting: double-check your knots, harness buckle, belay system, karabiners, snaplinks and the end of the rope
  3. Let your climbing partner know what's going on: communication prevents misunderstandings, let your belayer know when he has to take your weight on the rope
  4. Act respectfully: respect other climbers and inform them of mistakes and dangers; always respect areas where climbing is not allowed
  5. Protect your head
  6. No rope on rope contact
  7. Warm up before you start climbing: gymnastics and warm-up climbing protects your joints, muscles and tendons
  8. Full attention while belaying: the life of your climbing partner is in your hands
  9. It is strictly forbidden to fix new climbing hooks
