Climbing

We have climbing walls and bouldering rooms in Fantofthallen and Lehmkuhlhallen, and we offer skilled instructors, climbing courses, and climbing competitions. Climbing walls and courses are open to everyone.

Fantofthallen

With its two climbing walls and a bouldering room, Fantofthallen offers challenges for everyone. The main wall is 10,5 metres high and offers between 35 and 40 routes, moving from vertical to overhanging and with a grade span of approximately 3 to 8. The blue wall is 8 metres high, moving from slab to vertical with routes spanning from approximately grades 3 to 6. We also have a spacious bouldering room with every level of problems.

 

Lehmkuhlhallen

With its 15 metres and between 40 and 48 routes, the climbing wall in Lehmkuhlhallen is the largest of our walls. The routes are mainly vertical, but on the hydraulic driven tilting wall you may do some brutally steep climbing as well! The routes in Lehmkuhlhallen spans from grade 4 and upwards. The bouldering room offers problem solving on vertical and overhanging walls and excellent conditions for climbing workouts.
