  • Take care and do not endanger anyone!
  • Discuss before starting whether climbers of two routes could constrain each other (for example crossing over).
  • Always stay on the climbing line that belongs to the route.
  • Caution when lowering! Keep an eye on the landing zone.
  • Do not block routes with suspended ropes or bouldering unnecessarily long.


 Safety technology

  • Its only allowed to secure with Autotubern oder Halbautomaten. Tuber and HMS pose a high risk and are only allowed to be used with special training and experience after consultation with the operator.
  • The rope is tied directly into the belt with a figure eight knot loop or bowline on a bight.
  • In the lead climbing ALL intermediate belay are mounted.


Cable rules

  • The existing ropes may only be removed at the routes where you want to climb either with your own rope or with the rope removed. After climbing the ropes IMMEDIATELY have to be hung in the diverter again.
