Types of climbing

We offer 3 types of climbing at our center

BOULDERING

BOULDERING

Description:
Becoming more and more popular, bouldering is a type of climbing without ropes or harnesses. Bouldering walls are shorter and equipped with 12 inches mats in case of a fall. No need for specific training to boulder. This is a sport that can be done solo or with a friend, beginners and experts alike!

Prerequisite:
No course or accreditation required

TOP ROPE CLIMBING

TOP ROPE CLIMBING

Description:
Top rope climbing is done with the help of a rope and a harness. The ropes are already fixed to the top of the walls to insure your safety! You need at least 2 people for this type of climbing. You will also need an accreditation to belay a climber. This can be obtained by taking the top rope climbing course or by passing a direct test which is non-refundable for your first visit.

Prerequisite:
Top rope climbing course or accreditation
Book a course

LEAD CLIMBING

LEAD CLIMBING

Description:
Lead climbing is reserved for more experienced climbers. Just like top rope climbing, you will need a rope and a harness, but the main difference is that the rope is not fixed to the top of the route. During the climb, the lead climber will need to clip his rope into quickdraws. Falls in the harness in lead climbing tend to be more impressive and complex

Prerequisite:
Take a lead climbing course or pass the lead climbing accreditation
