Most important elements of the climbing technique, dynamic belay technique, fall training, video.

Video analysis of personal climbing technique and explications of individual training possibilities. We do not only show techniques, but treat as well subjects like fear of falling, tactic and force.

Objectives

Lead climbing on an artificial wall.

Participants know the basic climbing and belay techniques.

Improvement of the climbing and belay technique.

Participants expand their movement repertoire and therefore increase their climbing skills. Participants will be able to apply dynamic belay technique.

Progression of the personal climbing level.

A course for advanced climbers who want to make progress. Due to the small groups each participant receives individual exercises that are based on his needs.
