Come and make some friends for life and get hooked for more….

“Sport climbing” is the style of rock climbing where the routes are protected by semi-permanent “Bolts”. There are many ethics surrounding the type, material, placement method and spacing of these bolts.

With a modern equipped sport climb it should be relatively safe to fall from any point, with the notable exception of gaining the first Bolt.

The majority of single-pitch routes in Europe and indoor climbing wall are “Sport climbing”.
