Safety Lesson


Target Group and Prerequisites

This course is targeted to all those who want to gain initial experience with indoor rock climbing.

Content and Objectives

The course objective is to learn elementary safety techniques in top-roping, so that you can independently climb in the climbing gym after the course. We will also learn how to bind and fasten the rope using an approved anchoring knot in addition to learning how to appropriately use the semiautomatic safety and belaying device, the GriGri from Petzl. At the end of the course all participants will receive a climbing pass, which allows them to independently climb and belay at Kletterhalle Tivoli Rock Aachen.


Additionally to the course fee, participants must pay the entry fee to the Tivoli Rock climbing hall. The entry fee is 8 euros per participants per date, including harness and shoes. Please let reception know, that you are part of the university climbing course, so you can take advantage of the reduced entry fee. Due to the reduced entry fee, continued climbing after the end of the course is not intended.
