Children

Kids can find their feet in a programme called "test drive" where children of 6 years and older climb under the supervision of an adult for as long as they want to.

This includes bouldering which is a climb of up to about 2m high without a harness. The ground is covered with soft foam gymnastic mats in case they fall.
The automatic belay wall allows kids to climb 8m high with a harness and a rope – the automatic belay system lowers the kids down at any time.

Birthday Parties offer a bouldering experience, rope ladder climb and top-rope climbing under supervision. Staff and gear provided.
