Safety is a very important part of climbing. Al our instructors are certified and are aware of latest developments and safety issues in indoor climbing. Climbing is a sport where it is necessary to trust each other and to check each other.
That’s why we are continuously asking people to be aware of the partnercheck. Please watch, even if you are an experienced climber, our short movie about the partnercheck.
House rules, climbing rules and bouldering rules.
Here are the most important climbing rules, which must be followed when climbing at one of our gyms. For the complete rules and regulations see here
When are you allowed to belay?
Only people who succesfully followed a climbing and belaying course are allowed to belay independently. If you something in the climbing gym that isn’t safe, please inform the staff so we can take action!
Tying in and partnercheck
Safety comes first in all our actions. A safebiner is mandatory for tying in indirectly. A partner check should always be conducted! In spite of everybody doing a partner check, we see a lot of things going wrong. Therefore we again bring the partner check under attention with everybody. It is important to check each other while on the ground. Even more important: do this knowingly. Don’t look, but see.
Fortunately accidents and incidents in climbing gyms are rare. By working together internationally we are able to better analyze problems and to take action.
De Klimmuur is a prominent member of the Branchevereniging Klim Sport [dutch industry association for climbing gyms], of which most Dutch climbing gyms are member. Within the industry association we are working both nationally and internationally on improving safety.
For instance over the last few years we see that all accidents are caused by human failure. We try to adapt our methods so we can avoid these situations. And – very important – we launch awareness campaigns and promote behavioral change in – mostly- experienced climbers.
