Rope climbing in Salmisaari
Climbing high walls with ropes is always a job done in pairs, with the other ensuring the climbers safety throughout the climb. The so-called “rope climbing” may be a confusing term for a beginner, but in rock and indoor climbing it basically means climbing tall walls.
At the Kiipeilyareena Salmisaari, as a beginner you can climb high climbing walls without having to take a course with auto belay equipment. However, learning rope skills will allow you to fully exercise as the number of climbing routes increases tenfold.
Rope climbing can be divided into top-rope and lead rope climbing, and most activities begin with top rope. The best way to get started is by attending a beginners course that covers how to belay a climber and other basics of safe climbing.
