Kletterthalia - House of climbing in Halle

The Geoquest-publishing house is in the heart of Halle. It is part of the "Kletterthalia" which concentrates different facilities of climbing in one house (see below). The building itself has been a theatre for children and young people until 2005. Then the house was empty for 6 years. From 2011 through 2013 we made the reconstruction of it.

Bornholm grows!

Of course Bornholm is not rising up in terms of height, even if some climbers would wish that to do multipitch routes.

New climbing routes in the heart of Halle

The first part of the new climbing spot in Halle is ready to be climbed:

Björn Olausson in Dadu VIIIc.
We have made 9 routes with a lot of effort since the rock is fragile in some parts. So please wear a helmet , especially as a belayer.

The routes are finally harder than expected since many holds came off leaving a blank face with small crimps. The climbs are nonetheless interesting problems and fun to try.

Bouldering in Switzerland

The summer comes. This is the perfect time to go up in the Alps for bouldering. "Heb de siech" is a bouldering flick that shows you whats up - up there!
